bainbridge rotary sale
Do not forget to go this weekend to the Bainbridge Island Rotary rummage sale! On Friday night (the 27th)from 4pm-7pm, you can preview rummage sale items on site at Woodward Middle School, as well as take part in the Silent Auction. At 7pm, the live auction begins, and runs until 9pm. Admission for this event is $1, which also enters you in a raffle to win $500 in groceries from the local favorite, Town and Country Market.
Personally, I would rather not know what is for sale, so that come Saturday morning, I won't be disappointed when something I had my heart set on gets sold from underneath me. In the past, I have always arrived mid-day and snatched up the leftovers from the morning craze at real bargain prices. At that point, the volunteers just want the stuff sold!
This year however, I intend on arriving before the sale opens at 8am, just to see the mad dashes for sweet deals, and hopefully get in on a few myself. Sales like these make people do funny things. FYI, the furniture, big appliances, and other large items are outside, scattered throughout the parking lot. Accessories, clothing, small appliances, toys, books and art work are in classrooms inside the school. There is also food available to purchase in the cafeteria. Just so you know, there is no cost for admission, and the sale runs until 2pm Saturday afternoon.
Go to the BI Rotary's website for all of the details, including information regarding driving directions, as well as parking and park and ride locations. Good luck, and see you at the sale!
