Yard Sale (+ dinner and dessert?)

Jenn  ·  Sep. 21, 2010

This Saturday only rain or shine Helga is hosting a Yard sale. Come down to Wren Street in Mission (just off Lougheed). Buying and eating goodies never felt so good--all proceeds to benefits SAINTS. I will be there and I might even bring a certain long and low someone and/or a bouncy screechy someone (can you guess who?).

If Helga can raise over $1,000 for SAINTS I will treat her and Carol to a lunch or dinner of their choice. So come help them get a free meal on ME! If she makes $2,000 I will throw in dessert too. And my mom loves dessert.


Helga has assured me that there will be a total smorgasbord of stuff, with something for every taste. I begged her for some specifics and here is what she gave me :) (some great stuff) so come early with some room in your trunk

Health Rider Exercise machine

Tooled brass firewood box

** Plus local walnuts both plain roasted and praline style and a bit of home baking. Yummy snack while you shop!



Its a goal ... not an expectation. You never know. Perhaps someone who really wants carol to have a real meal will buy all of your roasted walnuts! Yummy.

(pst, whisper in your ear: regardless I will still take you two out. But don't tell anyone because I want them to be generous with their loonies).


Well, lunch would be lovely but with my low low prices I don't think its going to happen. Sorry, Carol.
