After our fashion show last year, we began thinking what our next big event would be.
We wanted to educate the Penticton clothing scene about the benefits of consignment. To get the word out, we wanted to do something big.
With COVID-19 preventing gatherings in our store, we had to go outside.
Something big was in the making, we just didn’t know what.
After seeing pop-up sales in large cities, we came up with the idea of a tent sale.
Penticton, although small, has a community feel that we want to nurture.
Also, we redesigned our logo and bought new signs. It was time to reveal them to the world!
It's Show Time!
On the early morning of Saturday, September 5, we carried 15 racks of clothes down stairs.
With the help of some friends, we had everything set up for our famous fill-a-bag sale.
The community flocked to the opportunity to fill a large bag for just $15. It got a little crazy!
Calming jazz music set the tone for what was a rather hectic event.
Under the shining sun and warm Okanagan weather, laughs were shared as friends and family spent time together looking for their next treasure.
Penticton needs some excitement once in a while and our tent sale accomplished that.
Shoppers were thrilled when they discovered they could stuff as much as they could in the bag!
Upon The Setting Sun, We Were Finished
At the end of the day we donated 39 bags to the Canadian Diabetes charity.
It was a pleasure to meet so many new people and hear how they loved our selection of items.
As the awareness towards consignment grows, we find our quality of clothes increasing which is awesome for everyone!
We look forward to seeing you again Penticton,
Pipsqueaks and Damsels
"Great place to shop. Quality clothing at great prices. There are a couple of staff with a fantastic sense of color and fashion to help shoppers say what looks great on someone. So very helpful for those of us who need an extra eye to help us shop."
