Angels for Animals had its 20th annual Gigantic Garage Sale April 25-27, at the Canfield Fairgrounds, which offered shoppers a variety of items.
The thousands of shoppers perused the items in three buildings filled with deals on small appliances, books, crafts, holiday items, housewares, antiques and collectibles, clothing, jewelry, shoes and purses, toys, bikes, electronics, furniture, hardware, sporting goods, exercise equipment, luggage and outdoor items for lawn and garden. ‘Man’s World’ with hand and power tools was also set up in one of the buildings.
Attendees were given a list of the items in each building and a map to help them locate the buildings.
Angels for Animals accepted donations for the sale at the fairgrounds during the three days prior to the start of the sale. Several volunteers then priced the items and set up tables in the buildings.
Volunteers from the organization also helped during the sale days, from collecting entrance fees, to working the food stand, to working the check outs in each building and keeping the tables and items organized for the shoppers.
A Chinese auction was also offered with baskets full of donated items and a 50/50 raffle was also available.
All proceeds from the sale go directly to help provide food, shelter and veterinary care for the dogs and cats awaiting adoption at the shelter. The garage sale is the shelter’s largest annual fundraiser.
