Local mother Mindy Anhder started The Divvy UP, a semi-annual children’s consignment sale, 10 years ago and is hosting her 19th sale this week.

“I have a lot of kids,” Mindy said. “So, I thought that there had to be an easy way for people to use the stuff my kids had outgrown and for me to find other people’s items that were still in good condition.” And so, The Divvy UP was born.

The Divvy UP is designed to be convenient for both buyers and sellers. They provide a fully automated online system, where consignors can price their own items, then deliver them to the sale site to be sold.

“It is just that easy,” Mindy said. “It is less work, and more profitable than holding a garage sale of your own or selling online, where people want to haggle on prices.”

The Divvy UP, which includes all kinds of baby and children’s items, from maternity and baby clothes to books and toys, is good for shoppers, too.

“Shoppers love the convenience of being able to purchase gently-used items that have been inspected for quality in an organized and clean environment,” Mindy said. “It is a one-stop shopping experience.”

Mindy explained that many shoppers visit the sale more than once during the week.

“We have such a huge selection that there are always good finds,” Mindy said. “Some try and make it early on to find the ‘best selection,’ but then like to come back on the last day for half-off day (and, even then, there is still a great selection!).”

After the sale, sellers can choose to either pick up any unsold items, which remain tagged and can be brought back, ready to go for the next sale, or they can donate those items, and The Divvy UP will deliver them to a local charity.
