NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- March begins with some big savings. The largest consignment sale in Tennessee is underway in Nashville. You have plenty of time to visit if you're looking for a deal.

If you're in the market for almost anything, there's a good chance you'll find it at the Encores consignment sale at 3040 Sidco Drive. Customers are not shy to shop. A full shopping cart is a common sight. "Adult clothing, children's clothing, equipment, toys," says organizer Lisa Anderson.

Encores started 22 years ago in a Brentwood garage. Now it fills a retail center with items from more than 700 consignors. "You can't imagine how many items are here unless you just come see, and you take in 50,000 square feet of over 100,000 items," says Anderson.

Checkout lines can be long here, but most people seem willing to wait. "You know what to expect, you know it will be a good price, so it's worth it," says shopper Lindsey Nelson.

Local Boy Scouts work for tips. They are raising money for upcoming camps. "We can stand in line for people so they can continue to shop, or we can help bring their heavy objects out to their car, and help them load it so they don't have to strain and struggle with it," says Boy Scout Joseph Kindoll.

The consignment sale continues through next Saturday. Organizers say if you're willing to look, saving money is guaranteed.

The Encores consignment sale is located in the 100 Oaks area in the former Nashville Sash building at 3040 Sidco Drive.

Hours for the sale are:
March 2, 12p-6p
March 3, 10a-6p
