The 1st Semi-Annual
How it works!
Step 1. Begin clearing out your winter gear. If you haven't worn in the last three months--you aren't going to. Pitch it.
Step 2. Donate first- There are people in this city who RELY on donations to clothe themselves and their family. Take several quality items and donate them to The Lovelady Center or some other worthy charity.
Step 3. Take the left-over things that you wish to contribute and hang them on any kind of hanger—with the hanger hook facing like a question mark (just like Kids Market requires).
Step 4. Put a strip of masking tape (with your first and last name clearly written and the SIZE of the item) inside the neck of your shirt/jacket/sweater and in the waistband of your pants. Do the same for purses, shoes, accessories—make it visible.
Step 5. Gather your stuff and come on over to my house—4705 Bridgewater Road Birmingham, AL 35243. The sale will be set up in my basement.
Step 6. COME SHOP. You must contribute to shop. Bring cash or your checkbook. Each contributor will have a brown manila envelope with their name on it. When you purchase an item, you will look inside the item for the contributor’s name and then go to her envelope and either deposit the exact cash or make out a check in the correct amount. So—you could be making out many checks to many people. Understand?
Step 7. Pick up your leftover items if you want them back. Pick up your envelope of checks and cash!
Step 8- give back! Tithe off of your earnings and don’t simply use that money to put more items back in your closet. Be creative.
All remaining items will be donated to The Lovelady Center.
