After waking to a downpour that morning, throngs of Tag Sale shoppers showed up anyway, taking delight in the array of [your] merchandise, and walking out happy, arms full. Our language skills were put to the test at this multicultural event as young families found bargain priced goods and discerning collectors ferreted out treasures.
Big Brothers Big Sisters took away most of our leftovers; Habitat for Humanity ReStore received some furniture; a special donation of dozens of dance costumes was given to Neighborhood Studios in Bridgeport, http://www.nstudios.org and Our Woven Hands also received a donation of fabrics.
And we once again netted between $10-11,000! Thanks go to the dozens of donors and scores of volunteers who sweated buckets during set-up week, and did such a magnificent job. Thank you.
