Yard Sale (+ dinner and dessert?)

Posted: September 21, 2010 at 7:33 pm

This Saturday only rain or shine Helga is  hosting a Yard sale. Come down to Wren Street in Mission (just off Lougheed). Buying and eating goodies never felt so good–all proceeds to benefits SAINTS. I will be there and I might even bring a certain long and low someone and/or a bouncy screechy someone (can you guess who?).   

If Helga can raise over $1,000 for SAINTS I will treat her and Carol to a lunch or dinner of their choice. So come help them get a free meal on ME! If she makes $2,000 I will throw in dessert too. And my mom loves dessert.


Helga has assured me that there will be a total smorgasbord of stuff, with something for every taste. I begged her for some specifics and here is what she gave me 🙂 (some great stuff) so come early with some room in your trunk

    Well, lunch would be lovely but with my low low prices I don’t think its going to happen. Sorry, Carol.

  • Jenn says

    Its a goal … not an expectation. You never know. Perhaps someone who really wants carol to have a real meal will buy all of your roasted walnuts! Yummy.

    (pst, whisper in your ear: regardless I will still take you two out. But don’t tell anyone because I want them to be generous with their loonies).
