    It was fun - I got rid of some clutter....things I've had for years, keeping not throwing them out in case I might use them.....I think this is a really nice meet up group - I am available to help out in the future, please just let me know.

    I'll come in the morning around 9 to avoid the traffic heading North. I really want to come to this, but the afternoon traffic on the Hutch is bad around 1pm.

    • Sarah

      Cool, see you then.

      April 17, 2013

    • Dina

      Thank you for coming by and for the awesome cake! :-D

    I can probably make the morning shift if people are needed

    • Dina

      James - an extra folding table would be perfect - thank you!

      April 18, 2013

    • Dina

      Dude you are a superstar for staying all day- THANK YOU!

  • Sara G.

    I can volunteer on Saturday, and I'll look for some stuff to donate.

    April 9, 2013

    • Sara G.

      I completely dropped the ball on finding things to donate mainly due to the fact that I picked up a horrible flu and haven't had the energy to do anything. I'm hoping one more night of rest will heal me up but I might not be able to make it tomorrow. :( :(

      April 19, 2013

    • Dina

      That's OK Sara! Feel better!

      April 19, 2013

    I would like to help out and contribute some items to sell. Is there any chance I can bring my 7 pound very friendly therapy dog...she's a maltese/poodle mix....if not I would like to come my mself.

    April 15, 2013

    • Sarah

      Hi, I'm not sure the dog would be a good idea, it might scare customers and I don't know how carefully we would have to watch her around the bake sale items. I think Dina has the final call on that since it's her house but my instinct is no. If you have your items to contribute ready, let me know your schedule and I can stop by to pick them up before the sale. I am free most of today. As far as volunteers go, we need bake sale items and people to work after noon.

      April 17, 2013

    • Deborah

      That makes perfect sense.......I think what I would like to do if possible, is stop by and drop off items I can donate to sell....I went through my closet and found some items in good condition.....would that work? Maybe I will even make a purchase!

      April 18, 2013

  • Michael

    OK, so it turns out I'm needed in the City in the morning this Saturday as well... I'm not going to be able to make it to the event.

    BUT, I did just realize I have one geeky thing I could give to you to sell. I don't know if they are still needed, but I have a spare Xbox 360 hard drive? Said Xbox has red ringed, so I don't think it's worth anything.

    Not much, I know. I'm trying! I'll take another look at what I have, and if I see anything worthwhile I'll bring it over.

    April 18, 2013

  • Ron

    I think I can help you out ... Do you still need bodies for Saturday morning?

    April 16, 2013

    • Sarah

      12:00?

      April 17, 2013

    • Ron

      Done.

      April 17, 2013

  • Damon

    At the very least, I will stop by and show some support. :)

  • John S.

    I have a Kung-Fu graduation ceremony earlier that day, but I can be around after 1PM. At the very least, I'd like to donate to the cause.

    1 · April 11, 2013

    • Sarah

      John, if you'd like me to pick up your stuff before the sale let me know, I have free time this week.

      April 17, 2013

    • Sarah

      Also, could you work from 1 to 6 and help with cleanup?

      April 17, 2013

  • Ali

    I can do the afternoon shift! I'll also have some items to donate (mostly clothing, accessories).

    April 9, 2013

    • Dina

      Ali are you coming to trivia? Can you bring the items then so that I can store them?

      April 9, 2013

    • Ali

      I need to clear each item with my parents. Half of it is theirs, which they were planning to give away. They're just getting home tomorrow. It might be easier if I bring it by on Thursday or Friday, once they have a chance to confirm and can help get it into my car.

      April 9, 2013

  • Deborah

    Hi Sarah. I have some stuff I can donate. I work in white plains during the week. Is there any place I can drop stuff off to for the sale?

    April 7, 2013

    • Dina

      Deborah, since you're in WP, you can drop off things at my house in Valhalla. (since that's where we're having the sale anyway) No need to go to Larchmont.

      April 8, 2013

    • Deborah

      Great. We'll figure out some time that works. I'll send you a message.

      April 8, 2013

  • Shannon

    I am down for the morning shift! See you then xoxo

    I can help make signs but I'm likely celebrating a friend's birthday during the actual sale.

    April 8, 2013

  • Sarah

    Hello everyone, thanks for your RSVP's. Just a reminder, to please let me know if you want to donate items for sale, or if you are willing to volunteer. I have a pile of books for the donations pile already.

    If you plan to stop by the event and shop, save your pennies now and we will be glad to help you spend them!

    Do you still need a location? If so I'll offer up my driveway & garage. I'm on a cul-de-sac off of 9A and Rte 134, and may be able to borrow a large tent for shade.

    March 11, 2013

    • Sarah

      That sounds great. Are you going to be at Trivia on Wednesday, or another upcoming event? Would love to touch base in person.

      March 11, 2013

    • Niki H.

      I won't be at trivia (have a derby scrimmage to officiate that night) but I'll keep an eye out for events I can be at. Tonight I'll be at board game night at 3rd Universe in Croton, do you ever go to that? Otherwise, I have two small kids and am forever looking for fun geeky stuff I can bring them to. =)

      March 12, 2013

  • Sarah

    If you can volunteer to work a shift of an hour or two or four on the day of, please let me know in the comments, I will start working on a schedule.

    March 11, 2013

  • Seamas

    can i bring guests?

    March 11, 2013

    • Sarah

      Yes, you are welcome to donate and solicit donations from friends. Just make sure they know that they won't make any money from the event, all proceeds will go to Geek Pride Day.

      1 · March 11, 2013

    • Sarah

      Also, if you can donate goods but can't come, please let us know. We have some storage space available for donations.

      March 11, 2013

  • Steve R.

    Does it have to be "Geek Culture" related? I have a bunch of sports items that need a new home.

    March 10, 2013

    • Sarah

      Any items are welcome.
