The idea of starting a sale was, of course, Henriette‘s. After 3 years as a stay-at-home mom the need to plan and organize something, anything, was getting the best of her. And after another mom told her about kids consignment sales, which are very popular in the southern States, she thought it would be a great way to utilize her planning and organizational skills while still being a stay-at-home mom.
From Yours To Mine, LLC was founded in January of 2007, and we had our first sale at the Apple Valley Community Center in April of that year. We had to rent two separate rooms and found out right away that they would not be big enough for a second sale. We had 56 participating consignors and were bursting at the seams immediately.
We moved to the Dakota County Fairgrounds into a 9000 sq. ft. building for our second sale in the fall of 2007. The Fairgrounds and the building served us well for the next 3 sales, until we found that 9000 sq. ft. were starting to be too small, too.
We have been at the Hockey Arena in Lakeville since Spring of 2009 and hope that 17000 sq. ft of space will serve us for a long time. We love the facility. Drop off for our consignors is convenient with the drive up door in the back, there is plenty of parking for our shoppers out front, and the lobby is big and spacious for our vendors. With over 350 consignors and thousands of shoppers we feel that we are in a great place.
We hold our sales twice a year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall, with season appropriate items. Our Spring sales feature sundresses, shorts, and t-shirts; and our Fall sales are big on winter items such as snow boots and pants, Halloween Costumes, and long pants and sweaters. All sales offer a great selection of toys, and baby equipment such as strollers, swings, and bouncy seats.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any question. We are here to help!
