…the Sale:

Mulberry Bush Consignment hosts three children’s sales a year:  March/April, last week of July, and second week of November.  Although MBC does not have a permanent storefront, MBC does provide a way for consignors to sell items they don’t need anymore (& make some money!), vendors to reach a broad and diverse audience, and shoppers to find new and gently used items at bargain prices.

MBC is locally owned and is proud to support the community through various charity programs.

…the Owner:

Joanna Parks:  I’m proud to call MBC my third “baby”.  I have two children (Lydia, age 18, and Sam, age 14), a dog named Snickers, and a wonderful hubby/honey-do, Steve.  After graduating from Bethel College (N. Newton, KS), I received my social work license and worked for Communities In Schools at the Derby Sixth Grade Center and more recently with Parents as Teachers in Maize.  I love to laugh, organize, eat chocolate, and play/coach volleyball (not all at the same time!).

I am blessed with a loving and supportive family.  You can see them regularly at the sales!  My hubby is the brawn to my brain helping with the physical labor, but occasionally runs the registers, too.  My children “help” where they can.  My father, Richard, will make an appearance at the registers.  And my mother, Dorothy, helps when she can as a greeter and with the holding area.

MBC has given me an opportunity to meet and work with literally hundreds of wonderful families.  I am inspired and motivated by the incredible women (in particular) who support me emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically on a regular basis.  You know who you are…you are my heroes!
