Honest Earl's Bargain Basement Sale and Cafe, Saturday, April 18th, 2009

The day began with bright sunshine and nervous volunteers wondering if people would come on such a beautiful day. And they did! Our first customer peaked in at 8:50am - a good ten minutes before we were slated to open. Perhaps it was our striking new signs posted along the street and the great banner hanging over the Wolverleigh doors. Even so, the sale was bustling by 10am, gently used clothing, the delicious organic, fair trade coffee (thanks again to Small World Cafe) and fabulous baked goods (thanks so much bakers!) practically flew out the door.

The Earl Beatty Greening Committee and a host of determined volunteers rang up sales to the tune of $1300.00! Fantastic! Unsold clothing went to a variety of venues, including Ages and Stages (where we can continue to make money with our account, #197), Massey House, Applewood community clothing exchange. The winter stuff is in storage for next fall. Hope to see you then.
