Start gathering your donations, our 20th Annual Tag Sale is Saturday, September 9, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Join the fun, socialize with your neighbors, and find a bargain that you just can’t resist. The proceeds of this year’s tag sale will pay for lighting fixtures in the dark alley on the west side of the Center, between Carmelita and Scott streets. Last year, the Tag Sale paid for a fresh coat of paint for the equipment in the playground and replaced two rusting slides in the playground.

We will start collecting donations on Tuesday, September 5, the day after Labor Day. Here’s a short list of items that can be donated: books, videos, clothes, linens, kitchen items, baskets, decorative, seasonal, sporting goods, toys, collectibles, and more. Furniture will not be accepted.

Unfortunately, there are items that we cannot accept because Salvation Army will not accept them (we take our leftover items there) and no one else wants them: furniture; items that are stained, torn, or broken; large appliances (washers, dishwashers, refrigerators); small non-working appliances (microwaves, toasters); non-working electronics; non-digital TVs, non-flat screen TVs; baby cribs; bed pillows, mattresses and water beds; snow skis; oil-based cleaning supplies, paints and thinners; computers, peripherals, and manuals; auto parts and tires; sinks and showers; piping; water heaters; bath tubs; stained carpets; and, infant and baby car seats.

Volunteers are always needed on the day of the Tag Sale: to help set up at 7 a.m.; salespeople for either the 9-11:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. shifts; and, a recycle and breakdown crew from 1-2:30 p.m. This event is always fun for the whole family and there are always irresistible bargains. Save the date and plan on participating in the fun! If you have any questions, would like to volunteer, or need help getting your donations to the Tag Sale, please e-mail Rosie at rose@friendsofdubocepark.org or at Doug at doug@friendsofdubocepark.org.
