It’s a good problem to have.

“This building was over 8,000 square feet and we were jammed packed,” said Allison Key, the founder of Happy Moms Consignment Sale.

Key is currently looking for a space to hold the upcoming fall sale.

Happy Moms Consignment Sale started in fall 2014 and has since become an event local mothers look forward to -- not just for shopping -- but as consignors.

“We began in a small church building with about 40 consignors and that was four sales ago. Now we are over 200 consignors and it’s still growing,” Key said.

Part of the reason why Key is looking for a larger space is to welcome more mothers who want to participate as consignors.

Some of the perks include shopping before the public and choosing your volunteer shift.

An extra percentage is given for volunteering.

Registration for fall consignors is currently open on the website.

The Happy Moms Consignment Sale is Aug. 16 through 21.

St. Paul The Apostle Catholic Church is another popular consignment sale.

As many as 270 consignors contribute to the thousands of items that are available at the St. Paul’s Kids Consignment Sale.

“270 sounds like a lot, but it will go just like that. As soon as we open the gates and say you can start logging in your things, within a day or two it’s all filled up,” said Jack Polakowski, a committee member for the sale.

Registration for its returning consignors will open July 11 at 7 a.m. for the fall sale in September.

Registration is available online.

Polakowski says new consignors can register for the sale happening after September.

If you sign up to join the e-mail list, you receive updates including registration and sale dates.

A sign-up list is also available at the sales.

Consignors at the St. Paul’s Kids Consignment Sale also shop before the public.

The St. Paul’s Kids Consignment Sale is Sept. 9 and 10.
