ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Originally named Laura’s Friends and Alex, LFA Kids Consignment got started over 15 years ago with a small group of friends wanting to help each other out by selling their gently used or new items instead of dealing with the headache of having multiple yard sales.

“It’s all kids everything, toys, clothing, baby items if it’s kids related you can find it here.”

The four-day event started Thursday, Sept. 24, and is held at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, which provides a great deal of space for those shopping indoors.

“We have different sections for everything there is plenty of space, you’re not crowded standing right next to somebody.”

Masks are required to enter the event and all items for sale by consignors have been washed or cleaned with sanitizer wipes and sprays.

“Once we put everything out and we have it out on the floor we go around and we spray we have hand sanitizer everywhere, Lysol wipes… so lots of cleaning going on.”

To limit the number of shoppers at any given time, LFA set up several different shopping groups before opening to the general public.

“We let first responders come in, teachers, new moms, consignors, and we just actually opened to the public at 11 o’clock this morning, so we’ve been able to space out groups of people coming in.”

One visitor WFXR News spoke with says this event is something he looks forward to each year.

“Collectors, resellers, it’s good for gift giving, it’s good for repurposing, it’s really nice. We’ll probably end up coming back Saturday afternoon and Sunday as well.”

After the sale ends Sunday, Sept. 27, consignors can either pick up what didn’t sell or donate it to Goodwill who picks up the donations the following day.

“Anything else that people have decided to donate, don’t pick up we have Goodwill come in with bins and then they bring everything out for us, so it’s nice… and they have the capacity to take everything that we have. There’s quite a bit that’s left at the end because people [consignors] just don’t want to take it home.”
