Racks fill the gym at Vineville Baptist Church.

Parents slide hangers, looking for the perfect addition to their child's closet.

"It was really hard to find just one thing because she likes everything," said Jennifer Reeves.

Reeves and her husband, Joey, have a specific set of needs for their infant daughter, Haylee.

"Maybe some pairs of shoes that she doesn't want to kick off every five minutes," said Joey Reeves.

Haylee's a kicker, but she's grateful.

"She loves anything mommy and daddy get for her," said Jennifer.

Parents have a lot to choose from. Thousands of items are up for grabs at the consignment sale.

"It comes from church members as well as anyone in the community," said consignment sale committee member Andrea Goff.

Clothes, toys and books are all for sale. According to Goff, 70 percent goes to the consigners. The rest creates an opportunity for Vineville's youth.

"We've had several youth that would probably not be able to afford to go to camp in the summer," said Goff. "And we've funded them through the proceeds of this sale."

It's consignment, so nothing is brand new.

"None are stained. We go through and make sure they're gently used," said Goff.

The clothes are in good shape, and for a good price. But the non-profit sale is what appeals to these parents.

"I'd rather spend my money like this buying things for her than buying something new," said Jennifer Reeves. "I know this will go to a cause."

Goff says that cause is a direct investment in Vineville's future.

"It's a really great opportunity for our church to give back to the children of the church, which are the future of the church."

They're open 8am -7pm Friday, then close up at noon on Saturday.
