Neighborhood Congregational Church will again host its annual Bargain Festival (also known as a 100-family garage sale) Saturday, Aug. 25, to raise funds in support of the church’s mission and ministry, and donating at least 10% of the proceeds to a local charity.
Throughout the summer, church volunteers collected and organized donations of clothing and shoes, household items, furniture, children’s toys and supplies, collectibles, antiques, and electronics. This week, they transform every church nook into a specialty shopping mall, complete with designer duds in a women’s boutique, a children’s department with clothing and toys, an electronics room, bargain clothing, tools, sporting goods, household items and the outdoor furniture spot in the parking lot.
The event at 340 St. Ann’s Dr. is free, filled with bargains for purchase at reasonable prices, and runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be available for purchase, as well. “End of day” bargains begin after lunch.
Shoppers are invited to let volunteers know which favorite local charity they think should be the recipient of festival proceeds.
