Garage Sale

Each year, we turn turn piles of cast-off consumer goods into the fuel for radical economic change.  And, YOU CAN HELP US!

“We feel your pain. Over the years you’ve succumbed to the lure of various and sundry durable goods and now you have a love/hate relationship with your burgeoning pile of possessions crammed in your attic. Do you own your stuff or does it own you?!It’s OK. We’ll take care of it. Just bring your stuff to us. Our certified Ministers of Capital Accumulation will exorcise your soul of the burden of commodity fetishism.”* Bring your stuff to one of our drop off days.

  • Wednesday. August 14th from 4pm to 7pm
  • Thursday, August 15th from 4pm to 7pm
  • Friday, August 16th from 3:30 to 5pm
