|Various areas of the sale.|

As the hours passed, the space was transformed into what I always remembered. The tables were in the correct spots. The signs were starting to be hung. The boxes were specifically located as they have always been in the past. The once blank canvas is now transitioning into the beloved sale, which we all know and love.
|Early shoppers waiting in a very long line.|
This year’s sale brought in a lot of wonderful donations (thank you!) and incredibly nice items to be consigned (thank you!). So many people volunteered and went above-and-beyond what was expected. Kindness and generosity were every-present. A special thank you to those shopping the sale that also provided many random-acts-of-kindnesses as you just jumped in to help with whatever was needed. Thank you for hauling trash to the dumpster, or for bringing large trash bags of various items to Goodwill or to your homes for storage, or to those folks who helped other shoppers carry large/heavy items to their cars. It is these acts of kindness that also need to be recognized and acknowledged. We see you being nice, being kind, and being wonderful human beings. Thank you-thank you. What a wonderful way for all of us to celebrate that kindness lives and breathes all around us.
