Encores Consignment East helping local schools
Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Michelle Harper and Tricia Swaney are just like many moms around here with kids in school or soon to be in school. They want to do their part to make Wilson County have the best schools to offer in both the public and private sector; all while keeping tax dollars low.  They asked themselves, “How can we help?”  Like everyone else, they work hard to afford items for their family.  So again they asked, “How can we help?”

Consignment is very popular in Middle Tennessee.  After a long online campaign to bring the most popular consignment sale to Wilson County, Encores Consignment East was started.  Last winter began the first sale in Wilson County and was a huge success.  With the next sale in August and an expansion to include home décor, furniture, kitchen, and more, the sky is the limit.

Encores Consignment East wants to help you make money on your unwanted items, find affordable items for your family, and help your school, all at the same time. By consigning and shopping with Encores Consignment East, you can do this.  How?  With their new program called, “Encores4Education”.  Encores Consignment East has paired up with area schools on this program.  Consignors now have the option to designate a portion of their sales to the school of their choice!  All Wilson County Public Schools and Mt Juliet Montessori Academy have paired with Encores4Education.  Any school wanting to join needs to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  There is no maximum that any school can receive.  Again, the sky is the limit.

The upcoming Fall/Winter sale is in a large, spacious warehouse, The Deal Center (formerly Spec Print) at 1710 North Mt Juliet Rd.  With easy access from I-40 and plenty of parking, this location is ideal.

Sale hours are:

Wednesday, Aug 7 - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Thursday, Aug 8 - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Friday, Aug 9 - noon to 8 p.m.

Saturday, Aug 10 - 8 a.m. to noon (50 percent off day)

Encores Consignment East is dedicated to giving back to the community even more with donating time and raising money for Imagination Library’s Wilson Books from Birth.  Representatives will be present at select sale dates for families to sign-up.  Also, all donated items will be given to the Department of Children’s Services Foster Care Program to help the over 700 children in foster care in Wilson County and surrounding counties.
