“I really like the camaraderie that forms. When you participate for so many years, you start building new relationships with people and you look forward to seeing them at each sale, catching up and having some fellowship together.”
Fingar’s also found some pretty amazing deals throughout the years. At the top of her list are Matilda Jane clothing, furniture and strollers.
Now, onto the many items you’ll find at the sale:

Give a Little, Get a Little
Asbury United Methodist Church strives to help those in need in many ways. Each year, they tithe 10 percent of their annual giving to dozens of local and international mission/nonprofit organizations. The church even runs its own food pantry and various assistance programs to serve neighbors near and far.
To help stock Asbury’s Food Pantry, bring canned goods/non-perishable items with you to the consignment sale. Each item donated will earn you one raffle entry. The prize: a check-out fast pass, which allows you to skip the dreaded check-out line.
Winners are drawn every 30 minutes.
Items that Keep on Giving
Selling gently used essentials for babies and children is a great way for parents to clear out unneeded items and make a few bucks in the process. But the positive impact of this consignment sale doesn’t stop there.
Items that don’t sell during the sale will be donated (with approval of consignors) to charities serving Shelby County and Birmingham areas. Some include:
- Oak Mountain Missions
- King’s Home
- Shelby County Foster Care
Last year, the sale allowed Asbury United Methodist Church to help 55 families and donate thousands of items to local ministries around Birmingham.
