The seventh annual spring Playhouse Consignment Sale and Baby Fair will take place Friday and Saturday, March 30 to 31, at the National Guard Armory, located on Hunting Hills Lane in Boone, across from the Watauga County Swim Complex.
Donations of clothes, furniture, toys and more have been arriving at the armory as volunteers help set up the annual sale.
“The consignment side features high quality, nearly new clothes, household items and more, while the rummage side always offers incredible deals,” said Playhouse Executive Director Kathy Parham.
“Those folks wanting first crack at the good stuff will want to check out the Early Bird Sale from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 30, and will have to pay a $5 ‘hunting license’ admission fee,” she said.
Admission is free for Saturday’s Baby Fair from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Baby Fair will have a half-price sale from noon to 1 p.m.
