Thursday through Saturday, May 5th to 7th, 2011, Lutheran Life Villages’ BBE Volunteers will celebrating 20 years of bringing to the public the region’s largest garage sale!
This sale is completely operated by volunteers. They gather the items, clean, store, fix, price, display and sell the gently used furniture, appliances, tools, collectibles, antiques, cookware, china and glassware, lamps, bicycles, lawn equipment, linens and bedding, exercise equipment, light fixtures, jewelry, books and many more items.
The volunteers are very mindful the families purchasing these items need a bargain. Everything is priced to sell, so this is a win-win event.
TO DONATE ITEMS: Someone’s trash is another person’s treasure, so while you are “spring cleaning” look around to see if you have something you are not using. There are others that will cherish it. Individuals, civic organizations, or church groups who wish to donate good, clean, gently used items (no clothing or shoes please) may do so by bringing items to the International Park on Friday, April 15th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Saturday April 16th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Donations are tax deductible.
PROCEEDS TO FUND LLV EXTERIOR LIGHTING
The proceeds from this year’s BBE sale will be used for the purchase of new exterior lighting along the main entrance and through the parking areas of the Lutheran Life Villages campus.
COME TO THE SALE! Come early for the best selection and fantastic bargains. You won’t be disappointed!
