Thrift Shop Community Tent Sale

 

A bargain hunters dream weekend!  Join us September 5-7 from 10am – 5pm in the Lambs Farm parking lot to shop for great deals from our Cedar Chest Thrift Shop.

We are also inviting businesses and individuals to come set up a tent!  You can clear out your summer stock, do advance sales on holiday items and sell your excess!  Or maybe you still have leftovers from your garage sale this summer and want to try one last time to get rid of those items- come join us!

For just $10 a day, or $25 for all three days you can join us to sell your own items during the event!

On Friday, seniors receive 25% off all items, and on Sunday there will be special deals for all customers (all deals only apply to the Lambs Farm tent)!

Download the registration form here and send to Kathy McMeins at kmcmeins@lambsfarm.org.
