Playhouse Pumpkin Party & Consignment Sale Friday and Saturday
The donations and consigners have been pouring into the National Guard Armory this week in preparation for the annual Playhouse Pumpkin Party & Consignment Sale.
“This will be a great chance to start your Christmas shopping with all the great kids’ clothes, furniture, books, household items, antiques, and more” said Kathy Parham, Playhouse executive director.
Those wanting first crack at the good stuff will want to check out the Early Bird Sale on Friday, Oct. 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will have to pay a $5 “hunting license” admission fee.
Admission is free for Saturday’s Pumpkin Party. Held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 at the National Guard Armory in Boone, the Pumpkin Party will include the always popular air walk and face painting by professional artist Byrony Renouf. There will also be a car seat safety check offered in the parking lot.
All rummage and most of the consignment items will go to half-price starting at noon.
The National Guard Armory is located on Hunting Hills Lane in Boone, behind a baseball field and diagonally across from the Tot Lot playground.
