The merchandise at the sale came from donations throughout the community to support Helping Hands. Many items went without pricing, and left the building after a donation had been accepted from a compassionate member of the community.
“Nothing in particular has been popular today. Everyone has their own thing that they are looking for,” said Helping Hands Volunteer Pam Wimsatt. “You would be amazed by the things that have gone out. We’ve seen things come in and said, ‘We’ll never be rid of this,’ only to find it is one of the first things to go.”
Wimsatt said that with the high number of craft makers in the community, several shoppers have come to the sale to search for the perfect small item for their projects.
Doris Lester, another volunteer said, “If it gets made, it ends up here. We had a framed Bill of Rights which sold this morning.”
“My neighbor gave us her winter clothes when she moved to Florida and no longer needed them,” said Wimsatt. “Another lady just moved up here from Florida and bought my neighbor’s clothes.”
