There are a number of consignment sales in Maryville that I really adore. The Kidz Consignment Sale at First Baptist Maryville is one of these. I always find really great deals, and I’ve made quite a bit of money consigning as well!
I am excited to be able to give away passes to the Kidz Consignment Sale pre-sale to two Thrifty Christy readers! There’s nothing like shopping early!
The sale is Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, but these tickets will get you in beforehand to shop with consignors on the evening of Thursday, March 30.
Here’s more info on the First Baptist Church of Maryville’s Kidz Consignment Sale:
The church is located at 202 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy in Maryville, and the sale takes place in the church gym.
Friday, March 31 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Half-Price Sale Saturday, April 1 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. (All items without a red dot will be half-price.)
Cash and credit cards only.
If you’ve already signed up to consign, you can enter to win a pass to give to a friend. Shopping early is a lot of fun, but remember to get there before the doors open as there’s always a line!
To keep up with all the news about the sale you can like their Facebook page here.

Happy Pi Day! (3/14). Today only, Kroger will have their 8 inch pies on sale for $3.14!
Also, you’re in Knoxville, both locations of Buttermilk Sly Pie Shop (Turkey Creek & Bearden) will have their mini pies on sale for $3.14, plus when you purchase 4 you’ll get the 5th pie free! We purchased the Groupon I posted about a few weeks ago, so we’ll be heading to Buttermilk Sky to use that.
Have a wonderful Pi Day!

While you’re there, stop by the library book sale! It’s for members only today, but you can join at the door, and I think it’s totally worth it!
