Garage Sale Benefit  
A couple of us fine KC women are doing the big 3-Day coming up in June (which is a 60 mile walk raising funds for breast cancer). So as part of the effort to raise our minimum donations ($2,100 each) for participation we are having a "everything must go for a good cause" garage/bake sale.

And if you're just interested in donating here's our walk websites (there more info on the event and the Komen foundation at the sites as well):

This Saturday the 14th - from approximately 8-3

In Mission - one block north and one block west of Johnson and Lamar (aka corner of 58th and Russell) - can't miss it.

For the "bake" portion of the sale there will be iced pink ribbon sugar cookies and probably pink rice crispy squares.

As for the pre-owned merchandise:

There's all kinds or art - high quality framed prints ready to hang (these are large and each marked $40):

And some art that is just more interesting - this 3x2 gold and black number (photo fuzzy - marked $20):

Some furnishings - a kitchen island table ($20), a solid heavy endtable ($15), a two seater black papazan (sp?) chair ($40), and this pillow-back loveseat ($60):

Women's clothes of all sizes. And tons of children's clothes - mostly girl, but a decent amount of boy stuff too, and some that's unisex. I'm not sure about the prices for the adult stuff - most of it is coming from other walkers - but for the kid stuff it'll be mostly in the 50 cent per item range up to $2-3 for a few particular items.

Everything from this newbie pink butterfly onesie - to these high fashion 3T pants and shorts (also sizes up to 4T):

I would kill for a vest like this in my size. It belonged to my neice and I can barely bring myself to part with it because it just so freaking cool (3T I believe).

There will be dozens and dozens of books - for next to nothing. Fiction, non-fiction, hardcover, softcover, modern, classics - tons!

And there will be lots of random garage sale type items - like these ceramic plates for people who don't like their food to touch (set of 5 for $3):

So please come out and shop for a good cause. We'll take credit card donations online for merchandise. :)

Hi there -- glad you two are supporting such a great cause.

I was wondering -- do you have a pic of the two-seater papazan? I'd be very interested in it.

BTW-- could I put it on hold if i know for sure I would like to buy it, or would I need to come to the sale and hope it's not sold yet?

Here it is...
If you're pretty, pretty sure that you want it - I could hold it for a few hours.

Give me an idea of your commitment level and when you'd be able to stop by - it could work. :)
