It's A "FREEBIES" PARTY - This Saturday!
With all of the moves coming up and all the organizing and cleaning out many of us are doing to get ready for summer, a bunch of us have been trying to figure out the best way to give away items others might be able to use, and then donate the rest. So we decided to have a FREEBIES PARTY (aka "Hand-me-down Swap") this Saturday, June 18 at the church from 8:30-10:00 am If it's nice we'll try to hold it outdoors, but if it's raining we'll be in the gym.
We would LOVE to have anyone who would like to participate join us...whether you have hand-me-down clothes, toys, and housewares to bring to give away OR you just want to do some FREE yard sale-type shopping! I've heard of a lot of great items being given away, so if you're looking for something in particular that someone else might have for FREE, then stop by! I know with summer starting I would love to find some play clothes for my kids in bigger sizes and some different activity items, and give someone else some of the things we've outgrown at the same time! Also, the Sister Missionaries cleaned out their apartment and closets before they left so there are quite a few women's church clothes that had been left from previous sisters that are up for grabs. Other items available are table linens and curtain valances (many new), home decor items, plus lots of toys and shoes.
If you have things you've been wanting to give away but can't make it on Saturday, let me know and we can try to arrange some way to coordinate pickup. Everything that isn't given away or wanted will be taken to Liberty thrift for donations afterwards (unless you'd prefer to take your items back home with you).
Hope you can make it -- it'll be fun!
