Put this one into your diaries, folks! Together with the lovely ladies, Sheila Campbell & Carolyn Wright, I will be hosting another charity sale for IDRO JAPAN* during the Golden Week weekend!
Saturday May 5th – 11:00 – 21:00
Sunday May 6th – 10:00 – 15:00
Location: Five minutes from Demachiyanagi Station in Room 3 of the 左京西部いきいき市民活動センター (Sakyou Nishibu Iki-iki Shimin Katsudou Center). Here is a map with the route marked from Demachiyanagi Exit 5.
Last year our combined sales raised 237, 630 yen for Tohoku Disaster Relief. This year we want to raise more! Please tell everyone you know about this event!
We will have – second-hand… books, clothes, records, cds, toys, various household items and electrical goods.
Delicious Baked Goods!
Free Iced Teas!
The return of the “Human Jukebox” !
Lucky Dip! – Fabulous prizes guaranteed!
Clothes – preferably spring/summer clothes! (cleaned, ironed and in good repair – no underwear please!); DVDs, CDs and vinyl records; 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).
If you wish to sell larger household items please bring just a photo and your phone number.
Books! We have so many already and they’ll be sold at a snip! Please no more books!
Knick-knacks! No more knick-knacks please! We’ve had our fill of knick-knacks!
Unfortunately we are unable to receive goods before the event so please bring them on the day of sale, – the earlier the better! Donations can be received from 10:00 am on the Saturday.
To reiterate, everything donated needs to be in good, saleable condition – and as I wrote above, clothes need to be clean! If you have any queries, please contact Michael Lambe at: m.0.luain.23[at]gmail.com
(The 0 is a zero and the [at] is an @)
Oh, and by the way – it’s going to be FUN! Don’t forget to invite your friends!
From Demachiyanagi Station head east. You will pass Heming Sports Club on your right and on your left, there is a broad area of azalea hedge. Turn left at the hedge! Go straight up until you see a small tobacco shop directly in front of you. Take the road to the left of the shop and go up again. You will pass a temple on your right and then another temple on your left. Just a few steps further on your right is the Iki-iki Shimin Katsudou Center. There is a kindergarten on the ground floor. Go up to the second floor and we are at the far end of the building in Room 3. We are looking forward to seeing you!
*All proceeds go to IDRO JAPAN

Hello! I live in Kyoto and I would like to know how I can participate in this sale. I have a few things on the list I could sell. Could you tell me what I need to do to have a spot there? Thanks!
Michael Lambe says
Hi there, Angela! Just come along on the day and we’ll sell them for you! If you want to sell them yourself, then we can give you some space too.
