Consignment reminders

Fingers crossed that all of your preparations are going well and I am sure I will be bumping into many of you as we begin all of the Back to School night activities.

All of our school supplies are in and we are fully stocked! If you need those last minute school items be sure to stop by!

Schools Supplies are In Stock!

I will also be carrying these items all year long. So in a few months from now as your child drags their backpacks along the sidewalks and hallways and the straps begin to tear and holes pop up on the bottom, stop by The Puzzle Piece and replace them for less!


GOD SENT ANGELS is a local mission dedicated to helping ANYONE in need!

Man, women, child and their pets!

As a consignment shop, not everything here sells in a timely manner. For all of the items that do not, I DONATE them. I do not give them to Goodwill or any other organization. 100% of the unsold items is given to this mission.

Below is a visual, a glimpse into what your leftover/unsold items are doing here to help those, right where you live! Thank you for allowing us to give your unsold and leftover items to those in need!

Below is a message from Brenda Burt (the angel, along with her husband Ron and whoever volunteers) who operates this needed mission.

"Chris, Thank you for all your support, God bless you for all your donations, you will see many of your donations in this video. This mission could not exist without awesome folks like you, thank you so much, hugs."

The Puzzle Piece is owned by Christine "Chris" & Brian Garton, who are raising 3 children one of whom has a disability. After recently retiring from 25 years of service in the Army with 7 years at Ft. Bragg, Christine & Brian have decided to remain in the Sandhills area.
