DANVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Hendricks County will welcome back one of the biggest springtime consignment sales in central Indiana for its eighth year.

The Here We Grow Again consignment sale gives hundreds of families in the community a chance to shop on a floor with more than 120,000 items. Katie Awwad, who helped start this project, says she enjoys bringing people from all over the community together.

“I look forward to the community aspect this sale brings,” Awwad said. “The main goal was just to be a blessing to the community. We felt like there was a need on the west side for families who needed help reusing and reselling items.”

It’s one of the largest sales around, especially for new parents, where you can shop for gently used clothes, toys and more for lower prices than you would find in bigger retail stores.

What are the hot items for families?

“Our large equipment,” she said. “Strollers, high chairs, cribs. That whole room will be depleted pretty quickly.”

She also says their boutique inventory sells well every year, giving shoppers the option to purchase items usually sold at retail stores for $70 for as low as $10.

According to Awwad, they’re expecting at least 620 families to make their way to the Hendricks County Fairgrounds. “Most families depend on these sales to budget their next season of clothing for their kids.”

  • WHERE: Hendricks County Fairgrounds, 1900 E. Main St., Danville, Ind.
  • WHEN: March 11-14.
  • HOURS: 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Family night will be from 6-8 p.m. Thursday.

Everything that’s not sold by Sunday, March 15th, will be donated to Active Grace; a nonprofit in Camby, Indiana, that battles homelessness and supports families in need.
