The Children’s Consignment Sale Ministry was started in the Fall of 1998 by a desire to help area families shop for gently used children’s clothing, toys, books, and equipment at reasonable prices. With handwritten tickets and a small amount of inventory, a few inspiring women began a ministry that would address a need in our community.

Thanks to those women and their vision, the mission continues… The Oakland Baptist Church Children’s Consignment Sale Ministry has grown substantially over the past years! Today, because of that vision combined with new ideas and modern technology, the consignment ministry continues averaging about 11,000 items per sale.

This goes far beyond just a sale…the most important part is a true ministry to help others. We are blessed with many consignors that have donated their unsold items. Because of those donations, we have been able to be a blessing to many families and organizations in our community, which includes both Goochland and Louisa Counties. Sometimes, the ministry reaches far beyond our community boundaries!

We welcome your comments on how we can broaden our ministry. If you know of an organization or a local family that we could help, please do not hesitate to contact us: consignment@oakland-baptist.com. All recipients’ identities are held in strict confidence.

Status

Will we have a sale this year? We’ve been getting questions about whether we plan to have a sale this year.  The answer is: We really don’t know.  Like you, we are keeping a close eye on the status of the pandemic and want to have the sale ONLY when it is safe for everyone to do so. We have been throwing around a late July or August sale date and would like it to be a MEGA SALE which would encompass…
