You can also bring in your donations on the morning of the sale itself. In addition to clothing, we also accept handbags (always in demand!), shoes, books, kitchen accessories and household linens, decorative items, small pieces of furniture, and toys in good condition. Any toys that we don´t sell at our sale will be directly donated to local parishes for children whose Christmas is not looking all that bright.
