The Upscale WeeSale consignment sales returns to Fort Mill next week, offering more than 85,000 items from more than 750 consigners.

Upscale WeeSale features children’s clothing and shoes, new boutique overstock inventory, baby equipment, children’s toy and games, bedding, and bikes.

The event starts Wednesday and through through Saturday, March 19. It is at the The Pointe Arena, 2266 Deerfield Road in Fort Mill.

“The Upscale WeeSale continues to be one of the most sought after consignment sales in the Charlotte area year after year,” said Kim Willaby, owner and operator of the Upscale WeeSale. “With a record number of consignors and a product offering of more than 80,000 items, our buyers can rest assured they are buying quality, gently-used products, in an organized environment with attentive volunteers and sales staff.”

The Upscale WeeSale offers options for those wanting to shop early. Shoppers can buy a “Shop Early for Charity” presale ticket for $10 to enter the sale from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. for the opening day. A limited number of tickets are for sale at the Upscale WeeSale website.

Shoppers can also bring three canned goods per person to enter the sale at 4 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. when it opens to the general public. All of the ticket sales are donated to a local charity.

Last year the sales raised $3,000 for Pilgrims’ Inn Girl's Home in Rock Hill. It also donated more than 500 pounds of canned goods to Project Hope in Rock Hill.

On the final day of the sale some items are 50 percent off. These items are determined by the consigner.

Wednesday: 9 a.m. to noon “Shop Early for Charity” presale (See website for tickets)

Wednesday: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. (4 p.m. early entry with three canned goods per person)
