“6,000 square feet of bargains, who wouldn’t want to shop the sale!” said Beth Cross of the Cloverdale area, who is also president of the Roanoke Valley Junior League. Matter of fact she is the first Junior League president to come from Botetourt County. “Child Health and Welfare is the specific cause the Junior League has adopted for the next five years,” said Cross. She values volunteer work in her organization but has also stepped out to help a friend, Ellen Cleveland, with the special consignment sale coming this week and next.
In a way the consignment is to help families in the current economic downturn and certainly fits the bill for her personal outreach, she said. “I really want people in Botetourt County to know about this because it can help people here, too.” So many people are having to do as much or more with less was the general gist of her remarks about why she is helping her friend with the sale. It is called “Laurens’s Friends and Alex Fall 2009.” This is the fall sale and another for spring will take place on the first week of March.
So here are the details:
October 3-11 at the old A&N store on Rt. 419 next to the Direct Buy in SW Roanoke County. Hours vary but it is open on Sunday as well as through the week. Most hours Monday through Thursday are 10-6 and weekends earlier and later. Call 904-2440 for more details. Discounted pricing begins on October 9-1.1
Polo, Hartstings, Circo, Abercrombie, Gap, Gymboree, toys, Games, Furniture and more are some of the items found in the space. “Some of the items still have the tags on,” Cross told the Botetourt View. These are gently worn or new items that can really help the family budget. “Any goods not picked up by the consignor at the end of the sale will be donated to Goodwill,” said Cross.
