Meet the Volunteer Organizers:
CityKids Consignment Sale is inspired by the resale activity on the Kids South of Washington Google group (KSOW), which is managed by Lilypad. We are a group of moms who are volunteering our time, skills and talents to create this DIY sale to help support our community. Our nonprofit sale helps raise funds for Lilypad, our family play and community event space at 1234 S. Broad Street. If you are interested in helping out with organizing Philadelphia’s largest non-profit consignment sale, please email us.
My role with the sale: Marketing, Sponsorships, Donation Coordination, all around do-er!
A little about why I’m a CityKids volunteer: All the moms who run the sale are passionate and fun. We created the sale out of nothing and it’s so great to see the sale grow and raise money for Lilypad! I’ve learned so much about marketing through the sale and I’m all for learning new skills.
My connection to South Philly: I’m a native Philadelphian with family roots in South Philly. I’ve lived in South Philly/East Passyunk for more than 10 years. My husband and I Iove raising our son, Oliver, in the city and more specifically, South Philly. I love making South Philly an even better place for families to live and grow in!
A little more about me: I’m a former project manager turned Realtor on the Philly Home Girls team!
My role with the sale: Consignor Coordination, Set-up Helper, Marketing, Idea Bouncer Arounder!
A little about why I’m a CityKids volunteer: I enjoy supporting valuable causes that benefit families, the environment and our city! It’s fun to interact with like-minded moms who run the sale with passion! I hope to gain a broader knowledge base to apply to other areas of my life. 🙂
My connection to South Philly: My partner and I are native Philadelphians who are determined to raise our three young boys in the city we love! Each of us have lived or worked in South Philly in the past but our home is West Philly. We were drawn to South Philly to support this sale and the programs it helps to fund.
A little more about me: My ‘real’ job is as an Administrative Coordinator in a university setting handling everything from scheduling to maintenance; recruitment to event management. Additionally, I have led five consignment sales for our boys’ nursery school and serve on the events committee of their elementary school’s home and school association. When not seeking out a great bargain, I enjoy traveling, enjoying our great city and joining the kiddos in our LEGO Room! You can never have enough LEGO is the word in our home!
My role with the sale: Graphic Design, Website, Marketing, Advertising, and helping with a million other details that need to be done to make our sale run smoothly.
A little about why I’m a CityKids volunteer: I was so excited to be able to help launch a consignment sale in South Philly. I love the idea of being a part of a growing, changing and thriving neighborhood.
My connection to South Philly: When I first came to Philadelphia in 2006, I was charmed by South Philly and lived within a few blocks of my first place for over 10 years before moving to Fishtown.
A little more about me: I run day-to-day operations at Lilypad as a volunteer, and teach conscious parenting classes, which is a huge passion of mine. This sale is a great way for me to stay connected, keep up with and learn new skills (Mailchimp is a beast and I’m still figuring it out after 10 sales!), and help out in the community. If I stare at you blankly despite us having bonded during sale weekend, it’s only because sale weekends are an overwhelming blur for me, but I do love the whirlwind of those weekends.
My role with the sale: Sponsor coordinator, meeting coordinator
A little about why I’m a CityKids volunteer: I enjoy volunteering for events in general, but as a new mom I was looking for an opportunity to volunteer for an event that would also allow me to interact with local moms. I am a huge advocate of “it takes a village” and am actively looking for ways to add to my village!
My connection to South Philly: I moved to Philadelphia for college (Temple Made!) and slowly moved further and further south… Until about 5 years ago when we bought a house in the outskirts of Girard Estates. Now we are here to stay!
A little more about me: My husband and I are blessed with a little boy, Theo, born in May 2016. We also have two cats and a dog that are always in competition for largest appetite!
