Momma Outfitters consignment sale breaks records for Yampa Valley Pregnancy Center

It was a sale that went so well it brought tears to the eyes of Victoria Van Couvering, director of the Yampa Valley Pregnancy & Family Center.

“When we did the count after the first day we learned we had raised the most money in a single day ever raised for the center,” said organizer Amanda Rizzuto.

The result brought tears got Van Couvering quite emotional.

“I’m speechless. Not just because we’ve raised money for the center, but when I think of all that goes back to the community as a result, it’s wonderful,” she said.

The sale was held in the space under the Moffat County Fairgrounds grandstands and offered families upscale, second-hand shopping, complete with concessions offered by the ladies of the Craig Christian Church.

“We wanted to offer a whole shopping experience that allowed people to enjoy a cup of coffee or a treat,” Rizzuto said.

The opportunity to buy a wide-range of necessities for children drew families like Rose and Louis Nijsten and their 2-year-old son Erik.

“I’m expecting,” said Rose.

When she learned about the event on a Facebook sale page she decided to bring her family to shop.  

Planning is already underway for a second sale slated for September, Van Couvering said.

“I see this building over the next two or three years into something that will really rock Craig,” she said.

She hopes to see more consigners participate, especially people with maternity and toddler-sized clothing.
