Twas the day before the sale, and all through the house, the sellers were stirring, including their dogs... Okay, that's a pretty lame play on "Twas the Night Before Christmas," but I will say, "Happy garage sale to all, and to all a good bargain."
We have bargains galore, including today's treasure: HUNDREDS of children's books, all for less than $1 (and many below .50 cents). An Elim Elementary School supporter (who's also a school teacher) donated the books, so the book profit will go toward Elim, run by Kate Clement, one of Faith Alive's longtime volunteers.
We're also selling a twin-sized mattress (like new--always had a plastic protector), stationery bicycle, vacuum cleaner, like-new black office chair, children's furniture, lamps, rugs, dog crate, trendy office file carriers, books, brand new (unopened) Waterpik shower heads, and much more. All items (except the children's books) at this annual Faith Alive garage sale will benefit Faith Alive's brothel renovation/re-purposing project. Scroll down to other posts this week to learn more.
However, we don't have nearly as much stuff to sell as in past years, so please, please, please, it's not too late to donate good-quality items (no clothes please). You can leave them on my front porch any time today.
Garage sale: tomorrow, 8 am - noon, 5400 White Willow Drive, Fort Collins, CO. If you don't find what you're looking for at our sale, shop the entire neighborhood--dozens of garage sales tomorrow.
