Laura Johns, founder of the TTT sale, worked hard on Wednesday to make sure that the items for sale were placed nicely and neatly. It takes 300 plus volunteers to help ensure the success of the consignment sale. Johns noted that this year there were 1,014 consignors entered into the system. Johns also wants to make sure the public knows that this year, there are about 500 TTT sale oversized bags available to the shoppers, instead of everyone trying to push the carts through the building. The sale is open to the public starting 9 a.m. Saturday and closes at 8 p.m. It will continue each day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sept. 21. There are re-stock days, a Thirty Thursday (with prizes valued at $250), Half-price days and a Dollar-Dash. A complete schedule can be found by visiting: www.tykestotsteens.com.

Volunteers inspect all items brought into the sale for quality and cleanliness. Moyer says it is fun to work the event and, of course, it is a great way to make money.

No teen is left behind at TTT sale, either. Here, Covington resident, Chris Cutlip helps stock some deodorant in the “Teen Boy” area of the warehouse. This is Cutlip’s second year volunteering.
