Wiregrass Kids' Market
Organizers of Wiregrass Kidsí Market are excited about teaming up again with the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank to kick off the kids and baby items consignment sale this year. The WKM sale is hosting a food drive to benefit the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank from Feb. 12-14 & 16 at the old Circuit City building in Dothan on the corner of Hwy 231 and the Ross Clark Circle. There is no admission fee to shop; organizers encourage shoppers to bring canned goods to donate.
The bi-annual sale has developed a following among parents in the area because they can find great deals on everything from consigned and new clothes, toys and baby gear to furniture like cribs and bassinettes. Strollers and high chairs, normally high dollar items in retail stores, are sold for a fraction of the cost.
