Jack n Jill moves to church

PRYOR, OK — Jack n Jill is back in town and better than ever.

Cheri Peters purchased Jack n Jill Consignment in 2012 and has made a few changes.

The sale is still a great place to buy children's clothes, toys, and accessories. The sale still happens twice a year, in spring and fall. The location, however, was Peters' biggest change.

The sale used to be held at the Mayes County Fairgrounds and has been moved to First Church of God in Pryor. This sale will be in the church gymnasium March 6, 7 and 8 from 9 a. m until 7 p.m. (9 a.m. until 2 p.m on Saturday).

Peters says this is the ultimate shopping destination for anyone buying children's items on a budget.

“We have children's clothes, toys, books, furniture, bikes, you name it.  Anything kid-related,” said Peters.

Her goal this year is to get 100 consignors at the sale, giving the community the best selection possible.

Another change, Peters said, is that she now accepts all major credit cards in addition to cash and checks.

“We've revamped the website, gave it a whole new look,” said Peters. “Another change is that now volunteers that work the sale are entered into a randomly selected drawing for a chance to earn 100 percent of their commissions.”

Peters says she hopes the changes will encourage more participation.

“Oh and Saturday, the last day of the sale, it's 50 percent off all day,” said Peters. “It used to be just part of the day, but we found people would just wait until that discount kicked in to come shop. So to make it convenient for everyone we just made it the whole day.”

Peters has also booked a food truck for the first day of the sale, March 6.

“For even more incentive to bring people out to this fun sale, we've booked the In The Raw food truck March 6 from 11 to 1,” said Peters. “The last time they were in Pryor they sold out super fast.”

After the sale, the items are donated to two local groups.

“I partnered with Pryor Ministries Center and Fostering World Changers. Anything left over after the sale will be donated to them,” said Peters. “I want to share the experience with them.”

Peters said helping the community is her number one goal.

Pryor Ministries Center provides food, clothing and other items to those in need residing in Mayes County.

Fostering World Changers is a resource center for foster parents in the community, enabling them to quickly get items they need for their foster children.
