Shopping Tips

We love our shoppers! We are so thankful for those who come from far and wide, year after year, to support our sale. Here are a few handy tips for new shoppers:

Sale Hours & Parking: Our sale is open from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm, with a half-price sale on specially-marked items from 11:00am-1:00pm. Parking is available in the lot behind the school or on the streets around the school. Enter through the northwest doors off the school playground.

Hours for Children:  Because this is a busy, high-volume sale, no children are permitted before 10:00am. Children are welcome to attend after 10:00am. No strollers are allowed.

Bring a Basket or Bag: Shoppers usually find it helpful to bring a laundry basket or a large bag to carry their purchases.

Payment Methods: We accept credit cards, cash, and checks with ID.

No Food or Beverage: No food or beverages of any kind are allowed at our sale. We kindly ask that you finish your coffee before you enter.

1/2 Price Sale: The last two hours of our sale is the popular half-price sale where specially-marked items sell for 50% off.  It’s a wonderful way to stock up at a great price! Please note that we will close briefly at around 10:45am to return all unsold items to the racks. No holds are allowed, so we will ask all shoppers to pay for their purchases at this time. When the sale reopens at 11:00am, any items that sellers have marked “REDUCE” will sell for 50% off. Anything not marked “REDUCE” will sell for the full ticket price.

Purchasing Large Items: If you find a large item you’d like to buy, we will tag it so you don’t have to carry it around the sale with you. A volunteer will give you a claim ticket and you can pick your item up at checkout when you’re done shopping.
