|Bringing items to CLT truck after yard sal|
On Wednesdays we have trucks that go out and pick up items that are too large to tote to the store in the owner's vehicle. We pick up quality furniture and large items if the owner requests a pick-up prior to Wednesday. We don't charge, but we do ask that only large items or loads that are of suitable re-sell quality be scheduled for pick up. If you ever have any doubt about whether an item is something we could re-sell, please give us a call at 770-486-8517.
(We don't sell washers and dryers and other large appliances. ) For more specifics on the things we sell and details on scheduling a pickup, please visit our website, www.ClothesLessTraveled.org.

Saturday (4/16) we partnered with Whitewater for their annual community yard sale. It was a blast! Lots of residents cleaned out their houses and garages for the yard sale. When it ended, they packed up everything that didn't sell and brought it to the club house where we had parked a large truck. Board members and volunteers helped unload their vehicles, gave them a tax receipt and then loaded it into the truck.
We were there from noon to 4-ish. At times cars and trucks were lined up waiting to unload! We had some larger items that couldn't fit in the owner's vehicle so they'll be scheduling a pickup for this Wednesday, or maybe the next. Everyone was extremely nice, and very generous.

Oh, lets see, what else can I tell you about the Whitewater yard sale? Ah, yes - the loot! You wouldn't believe all the nice items that were tucked into the truck. Today as I type volunteers are sorting through the items and putting them out on shelves at CLT just for you, our favorite shopper.
Are you a reader? We have boxes and boxes of books to sell now. Ditto on toys and children's items. One family donated a beautiful wood crib. Backpacks, suitcases, sports bags and more.

Lots of beautiful artwork passed by me on the way to the truck. Framed pictures, figurines, collectibles, kitchenware... and some things I couldn't quite figure out. Mystery items!
Given the large amount of stuff we brought over from Whitewater I would imagine it'll take a few days to sort. We put things out continually so the store can undergo a complete transformation of stock almost hour to hour! I know I'm heading over tomorrow to see if some of the things that I wanted are out there still.
