BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Lollipop Lane Consignment Market is back for the second time this year in Baton Rouge.

Debra Church is a mother of five and signed up to be a consignor.

"The kids have gone back to school and I'll have a little more time on my hands to clean out their closets," Church said.

Ashley Thom and Shelby Smith started the concept in 2009 and it has grown, along with their space.

"Our consignors earn 60 percent of whatever the item sells for, and then if they want to earn 65 percent, they can help us by volunteering for three hours," Thom said.

The market opens Wednesday, September 2 at the corner of Highland Road and Staring Lane, near Johnny's Pizza House. It closes Saturday, September 5.

Thom and Smith want shoppers to help them support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

"We're so excited to be working with the Baton Rouge Food Bank again," Smith said. "The consignors and shoppers can shop early bird shopping Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. before we open to the general public, if they bring ten cans."

Children's and women's clothing, costumes, strollers, household items, furniture and toys are just some of the items that are already on display inside the market. Thom said more than 100 consignors signed up, along with several boutiques.
