Once a year a large community of townhouses owned by seniors holds a thrift sale in their activities center to raise money for activities. The huge room is filled with tables of items, items on the walls, furniture, etc. on the floors. It even spills out the door and on the lawn. It’s a very popular event and crowds show up including dealers. For one Friday in February my friend and I set aside time at 8 am to be there when the doors open. We go back Saturday morning to browse the leftovers now at half off. This year we got a great haul of goodies for low prices.
