Consign49 Fall/Holiday 2019 Consignment Event
November 14-17, 2019 – 9AM
Raven Hall, Alaska State Fairgrounds
2075 Glenn Hwy. Palmer
How would you like to shop from a selection of thousands of items at 50%-90% off retail prices, all under one roof?
Consign49 is a 4-day event held each spring and fall, in which over 200 local community members bring new and gently-used clothing, accessories and home décor items together to form a large-scale resale pop-up.
Each consignor individually prices and tags each item, and items are dropped off approximately one day before the sale begins. Consign49 Team Members work to organize all items, so everything can be easily shopped according to category and size. There is also a dedicated boutique section, in which local boutiques have discount and clearance items for sale. In addition, there is a “vendor row” where local businesses will have booths for sharing their products and services.
The event benefits all involved and is recycling at its best! Consignors get to clear out items from their homes, while earning some extra cash for the holidays. Shoppers get the opportunity to buy brand-name items, or much needed seasonal items, for a fraction of retail prices. Additionally, many items that go unsold at the end of the event will be donated to local charities in need.
The Consign49 Fall/Holiday 2019 Event will be held November 14th-17th at Raven Hall at the Alaska State Fairgrounds in Palmer, Alaska. Admission and parking are free, all major credit cards are accepted, and dressing rooms are available for trying on clothing items. Hours are 9am–8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and from 9am-5pm on Sunday. On Sunday the 17th, many remaining items will be marked half-price, depending on whether the individual consignor has chosen to put the item into the half-price sale.
