MOVE OVER, WALMART!
Shop the Arizona Ave. Cul-de-Sac for Bargains Galore
on Memorial Day Weekend
Start your Christmas shopping early at the Land Trust’s traditional summer fundraiser, the Memorial Day Cul-de-Sac Sale. This year’s dates are May 26-27. We’ll have the usual assortment of books, toys, clothes, electronics, whatchamacallits, thingamabobs and you-name-its, all at low, low, low prices, with a carbon footprint that puts Wal-Mart’s to shame.
Every year this neighborhood-wide post-retail extravaganza fills the cul-de-sac at the end of Arizona Ave., thanks to your donations of any and all castoff items in saleable condition – a cornucopia of treasures that might otherwise land in the landfill, or add yet another stratum to the archeological record of basement clutter.
For the minimalists out there who’ve already turned their living space into a Zendo, we are also requesting donations of baked goods for the Bake Sale. Best of all, even if you have nothing to donate and no holes to fill in your collection of material objects, you can still have a blast by joining the crew setting up, running the sale, and packing everything up afterward. Like last year, we’ll be donating whatever is left to Second Life thrift store in Avondale, which supports animal rescue efforts in Atlanta.
Donate Your Gently Used Items for the Sale!
Now’s the time to start setting aside items you might normally drop off at the thrift store. Please make sure they are in saleable condition! Contact us if you are unable to store them and we will be glad to pick them up. Other ways you can help:
Pass the word to friends and family who might have items to donate.
Help with publicity – posting signs, etc.
Volunteer to pick up and/or store sale items till the day of the sale. Use of your pickup or van is a plus!
Bake something tasty for the Bake Sale.
Help set up the sale on Friday, May 25.
Help run the sale on Saturday and Sunday (3-hour shifts).
Help pack up the leftovers on Monday, May 28.
Join a Land Trust committee and help us spend the money wisely!
