Please tell everyone you know about this event!
We now have a full complement of volunteers to staff this event and lots of good things have been donated! Come along and buy lots of stuff at our Bring & Buy Charity Sale!
We have ~ second-hand… books, clothes, records, cds, toys, various household items and electrical goods (a dvd player, rice cooker, kotatsu etc…).
Delicious Baked Goods!

We still need more donated goods – see below for instructions!
All proceeds go to IDRO JAPAN
International Disaster Relief Organization Japan
IDRO Japan is a Kyoto-based NPO that provides aid and assistance for immediate post-disaster relief and long-term support through relief trips and housing. IDRO Japan’s efforts are concentrated on areas affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. http://www.idrojapan.org/
Those wishing to donate goods ~ you can deliver them to the A.S. event space on Friday the 27th from 2pm to 6pm and from 8pm to 10pm. There is a yoga class between 6 and 8pm that must not be interrupted!! You can also bring things on the day but it would help us a lot if we got them in advance!
If you are donating clothes, they need to be washed, ironed and in good condition – and only light summer clothes please! Winter clothing is a hard sell this time of year!
Please contact Michael Lambe in advance of delivery specifying what you will be bringing. If the delivery time is unsuitable, then again please contact Michael either on facebook, or email him here: firstname.lastname@example.org (the 0 is a zero).
What we need:
Clothes – preferably summer clothes! (cleaned, ironed and in good repair – no underwear please!); Bags & Accessories (jewelry, scarves, belts etc); Books (English or Japanese); DVDs, CDs and vinyl records; Games, toys and game software; Small household items; Electrical goods in good condition; Crockery (sets only).
Fresh baked cookies & cakes etc (if possible please label them with the ingredients for the benefit of those with food allergies or preferences).
To reiterate, everything donated needs to be in good, saleable condition – and as I wrote above, clothes need to be clean!
Returns policy – unsold clothes and books we can dispose of but larger items and electrical goods will have to be returned to their owners if unsold.
