Pigtails & Cowlicks is a family event - we started the sale in May 2005 after visiting a consignment sale in another state. Wow! With three young girls at home, I found myself longing for a similar sale in Owensboro, but there was none. Then, Greg saw the look in my eye and knew he was destined to be my partner as we started the consignment sale adventure. We started small with 30 consignors in a tiny storefront, covering the business in prayer and waiting to see if this was something the Lord wanted us to continue. Now, He has allowed us to grow to almost 400 consignors at the Owensboro Convention Center, so the adventure continues.
We run this business as a ministry to the Owensboro area. Consignors earn money for their outgrown and gently-used kids items while shoppers can find amazing items for their children at a fraction of retail prices. When our generous consignors choose to donate their unsold items to the Blessings Closet, we have the joy of watching invited families-in-need select items for their own children at no cost. With the scores of amazing people we have had the opportunity to work with and help, we are amazed at how this dream has resulted in a blessing to us as well.
We try and answer emails as soon as we can, but once the sale starts, things can get crazy! If you need to contact us once the sale starts, please call Elaine at 270-302-1205!
