  THE 2014 FALL SALE IS A GO!

WEDNESDAY OCT. 1-4 2014
 
 
 
Please contact us if you have items you would like to donate now. We're setting up and taking donations through the sale start day (for larger items, we can schedule a pick-up.). 

Starting Saturday Sept. 27 at 8:30am, you can drop off items off directly at the MerchandiseMart Building, located right inside the Snelling Ave. gate (behind O'Gara's).  

 

For larger donations, please calls us- we may be out and about in our truck and can swing by your neighborhood.

Please call (612) 685-4562 or (651) 442-7226 for further information. 

 

The "Garage Sale" as it's known- came into existence over 30 years ago! We held it on a front yard in Roseville and it just grew so much that we had to move it to the Fairgrounds! We're the Garage Sale Committee and we run the sale. We're current and/or former campers who have close ties to the YMCA Camps DuNord and Widjiwagan. If you've never experienced them, check them out here:

Twice per year we have a sale- usually May and October (same time that property taxes are due!). We collect donations from campers, friends, relatives, neighbors and from just about anybody who wants to donate to a good cause. We start the sale on a Wednesday, but we take donations all year long. As you might assume, it takes a while to set up the sale, so we start working at the Fairgrounds on the Saturday before the sale. People can also drop off donations at that location if they like. For larger items or collections of "stuff", we can arrange to have a truck drive to your location. 

 

The Sale is around the corner, so donate your stuff versus storing it over the winter! The actual sale date starts Wednesday, October 1st at 9:00am, but we take donations all year. If dropping off your donations, we ask that you do so any time from Saturday afternoon (the 27th) through Wednesday (the sale start day). Please email us to schedule a pick-up for large items, or you can drop items off at a location that may be near you.  
Sale hours of operation:
Wed., Oct 1 : 9am to 7:30pm
Thurs., Oct. 2 : 9am to 7:30pm

We accept donations year-round. For larger quantities or large items, we can schedule a pick-up at your location. Or better yet, you can coordinate a "donation day" between your neighbors and we'll swing through with a large truck! Please contact us for details at (651) 442-7226. Your contributions may qualify for a charitable tax-deductible. (Please see your tax adviser for details.)
