Third Annual Fall into Treasures Yard Sale.

  • Did you know that in 2012, AOK members helped AFAN raise well over $20,000 to help battle the scourge of AIDS? That's right! Many of our members joined forces with the always creative, always fun, always energetic TEAM WINOS to make our 2012 AIDS Walk efforts our most successful to date. In fact, we were not only  the largest team with the highest donations, but we were also awarded "Most Creative."

    Never being ones to rest on our laurels, we have huge plans to make our 2013 team even more successful. We'll kick off our efforts in October with our third annual fall yard sale. That's where you come in.

    First, we need you to scour every nook and cranny for your unwanted treasures. Come on! You know you have some. That lamp that your Great Aunt Fanny gave you may cause you extreme nausea, but it might be just the thing to complete someone's eclectic living room. Don't worry that it might be too early to pitch in. We'll be collecting for the next two. Give Mary-Beth a call at[masked] for drop off specifics.

    Second, as we get closer to the event, be on the look out for a scheduled tagging day. This is the day that we dump all the bags and boxes to sticker and price. If you want to see an expert merchandiser, be sure to step back and let Denise do her thing.

    Lastly, COME SHOP and BRING FRIENDS. After all the decluttering for charity, you deserve some nice new lovelies, right?

  • It is never too early to start dropping off your treasures. We have had great success pre-selling items on Craigslist. Of course, with every penny going to AFAN.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
