Down­siz­ing? De­clut­ter­ing?

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

If shed­ding un­needed clut­ter is your goal, then the Rap­pa­han­nock County Demo­cratic Com­mit­tee “Dog Days of Sum­mer” In­door Yard Sale and Fundraiser is for you. As pre­dictable in the dog days as bugs and hot weather, the an­nual yard sale is sched­uled for Satur­day and Sun­day, Sept. 5-6 (La­bor Day week­end) at the Washington fire hall.

To hold the yard sale, the Dems need stuff to sell — the still-us­able stuff that is clut­ter­ing your life. They will ac­cept do­na­tions of prac­ti­cally ev­ery­thing but the kitchen sink. “We ac­tu­ally had a kitchen sink do­nated one year,” said RCDC Pres­i­dent Ross O'Donoghue, “and we had a heck of time get­ting rid of it.”

The A to Z of the kinds of things they are look­ing for: art work, books, col­lectibles, cos­tume jew­elry, DVDs and CDs, elec­tron­ics (but no com­put­ers and ana­log TVs, please), fab­rics, fur­ni­ture (ex­cept over­stuffed chairs and so­fas), hol­i­day items, kitchen­ware, lamps, linens, pet equip­ment, pic­ture frames, pot­tery and glass­ware, small ap­pli­ances (noth­ing larger than a bread box), sports equip­ment, tools and hard­ware, toys, and other items — in good con­di­tion please!

Ross also said the group will not be ac­cept­ing cloth­ing for the sale, but cloth­ing may be do­nated at any time to the Thrift Shop on the Washington fire hall grounds.

To do­nate, de­liver items to the fire hall on Thurs­day and Fri­day (Sept. 3-4). If you can­not bring the items your­self, call Jan Makela (540454-0547) or Jim Blubaugh (540-675-2001) to ar­range for pickup.
