Back-to-school consignment sale in Miami helps kids with cancer

The Five Ladybugs Consignment Sale presents its Back To School Event on Friday, July 30, 4 pm to 8 pm and Saturday, July 31, 9 am to 4 pm at Sunrise Presbyterian Church's Fellowship Hall in Miami.

Shoppers will find everything their children need for back to school: pre-loved uniforms from many of the area's schools, sports and dance gear for after-school activities, homeschooling materials, plus clothes, toys and much more all at bargain prices.

Seasonal consignment shopping is a fast-growing trend in many parts of the country, but this will be the first of its kind in Miami. It provides a great opportunity for you to clean out your closets and make some extra money too.

Consigning is easy; just register online, price and tag the items at home. Then drop them off before the sale and collect the earnings after the sale. Unsold items as well as a portion of the sale's proceeds will benefit local nonprofit group Children Battling Cancer, Inc., a foundation that raises awareness and supports children battling cancer and their families.
