In a household full of kids there’s a constant shuffle of clothes, strollers, car seats, toys and other items that were perfect last month and are useless now.

Two Ahwatukee Foothills moms hope they have the answer. Ang Forsyth and Margaret Pratt have started Lucky Duck Consignment, a twice-a-year consignment sale for items from maternity to childhood.

The first sale, for fall and winter items, will be at Esperanza Lutheran, 2601 E. Thunderhill Place, on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4 and 5. The women are asking all those interested in selling items to register by Sept. 30.

The system Lucky Duck is very organized. All items must be preregistered online, where a barcode for each item can be printed off. Items must be dropped off by appointment on Wednesday or Thursday before the sale so they can be checked and organized into groups of similar items. During the sale all items will be set up and have batteries if needed so the buyer can be sure they work.

Volunteers will be allowed to take part in a presale on Friday from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., and the sale will be open to the public from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Saturday, the sale will go from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a half-off sale from noon to 3 p.m.

All unsold items can be picked up on Saturday after 3:30 p.m. or they will be donated to the Kyrene Resource Center.

Interested consigners can find a price guide, what items to sell, and complete directions online at luckyduckconsignment.com.

Pratt moved to Arizona from the south, where she said consignment sales like this are popular.

“I went to my first consignment sale and it was wonderful,” she said. “There are lots of things I wanted to get for my children but my husband was in optometry school so we were on a budget, which I think a lot of families with young children are, so we just had this list. I went to the sale and was able to get a lot of the things I wanted. A lot of things we didn’t want anymore we could sell and make a generous amount from, which was nice. It was beneficial both ways.”

Pratt and Forsyth said a consignment sale differs from a garage sale because the items are better quality and can be priced higher. The Lucky Duck sale will go for two days and those who register items to be sold don’t have to stay at the sale while it’s going on. The barcodes on each item keep track of who the seller is and at the end of the day, each consigner is given a check for their items that sold. Items can be tracked online.

“I would put my items on Craigslist, but I don’t have the patience to respond to every inquiry and arrange for people to come look at it,” Forsyth said. “This is the one stop. I can clear everything out and be done with it.”
