heads up: woodbury lions community garage sale

img3928Spring has finally (FINALLY!) sprung in Minnesota, meaning garage-sale season is officially underway. (Thank heavens!) At the top of my list of sales to hit this spring is the Woodbury Lions Community Garage Sale, running tomorrow, May 8th through Saturday, May 10th. Now in its 37th year (!!!), this mammoth event includes literally hundreds of sales, and is one of the biggest community rummage sales in the entire state.

Of particular note is a sale happening in the Stonemill Farms neighborhood (exact address: 2487 Fieldstone Curve, Woodbury 55129). Hosted by a friend of a friend, this sale, that starts today at noon, boasts a stellar lineup of merchandise (baby/kids clothes, shoes, activities, games, maternity clothes, furniture, Depression-era glassware, designer purses). More importantly, all proceeds raised at this particular event are going to cover medical expenses of my friend’s friend, who was diagnosed with a congenital CMV infection while pregnant with her second child. I’d never heard of this virus before hearing her story, but it’s actually surprisingly common, and the treatments currently available are shockingly limited. (Please do take a moment to learn more about virus, and how to prevent the spread of it, here at www.stopcmv.org.)

Detailed directories are available for $5 starting tonight through the weekend at the Woodbury Kowalski’s Market, Rainbow Foods, Cub Foods and most all area gas stations. To plan your trek in advance, download the digital directory now to your phone or tablet, available here. Sale hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., tomorrow through Saturday.

Good luck and have fun!

xoxo,

Meghan
