Encores and More North

Have I mentioned I run a children's consignment sale?

Well, it's THAT time of year again. In a few short weeks, hundreds of women and men dropping off for their women will be bringing carloads of goodies to the old Goody's at Rivergate (between Old Navy and Best Buy). We will inspect every item that comes through our doors, display it all nice and neat in our 32,000 sq. ft. space, and then sit back and watch it all leave in a matter of 7 days. It's truly amazing and if you've never been, you must come this time.

It seems crazy to me that just four years ago we were having our first sale. We had just a little over 50 consignors (mainly friends of mine pittying me!). I just KNEW God was telling me to start a sale north of Nashville that was a service to the community. Honestly, it was NEVER about money. I just knew we had to do it. The first few sales, we grew 70% EACH SALE. Unbelievable and only GOD! Well, here we are four years later with over 700 consignors. The amount we are able to donate both financially and physically to the community is amazing. I love finding out about families that are truly in need and having them come pick up what they need. I love that especially in these tough financial times we are offering EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING you could ever need for a child at a fraction of retail.

I'm telling you all this so you can see the person and the heart behind Encores North. It is my passion. I give GOD all the glory, without him I am nothing and this sale is nothing.

I want everyone in Nashville to know how great Encores North is and I need your help. We are asking anyone and everyone to help spread the word by doing a blog post, post on facebook, myspace, etc. Tell everyone what you think about Encores North (and please, if you have issues with us, email me at want to address ANY concerns). We will be doing a drawing on March 1 for 3 $25 gift certificates. All you have to do to be entered is leave me a comment letting me know how you are spreading the word! Blog entries get you two entries, everything else is one entry. Be sure you put a link to our website in your blog post, shout out on facebook, etc.

I have a feeling this will be the BIGGEST AND BEST sale yet. THANK YOU to everyone that makes this sale awesome.

Hi Brea. Amber Hester (Dickey) asked me to comment, post, link etc. for her. She cannot do it for herself. She doesn't have personal internet service. Only through work.
So . . . I'm posting about the sale on my blog; linking to your blog; commenting here, puting it on my Facebook, etc. on her behalf. Thank you.
