Give Huss your stuff!

Rummage sale

The inaugural Huss Future Festival in 2010 featured a GIGANTIC rummage sale.  Now, after narrowing the focus to books and clothing for a couple of years, the 2013 festival will see a return to the secondhand glory of the first year!  We’re now accepting donations for the mega-sale, which will take place on July 20 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.  Furniture, craft supplies, toys, dishes, home decor, antiques, books, clothing, sporting goods — if it’s got some good life left in it, we’ll take it! (Just please don’t stick us with your 8-tracks and defunct computer monitors — we have a room full of those already.) 🙂

Here’s what we love about a rummage sale: people share their stuff.  Whether we’re relatively rich or relatively poor, chances are we have at least one object we’re not using much anymore.  Huss Future Festival provides an opportunity for those forlorn objects to discover reborn usefulness in a new home, while bringing in money to support the vibrant, eclectic vision of the Huss Project.  And the qualities of that vision are not unlike a rummage sale: creative, hospitable, joyful, resourceful, surprising and generous!

All of the proceeds from the rummage sale will support the community-building work of the Huss Project, so don’t send your stuff to the landfill!  Give it up for a good cause.  We can arrange a time for delivery at the Huss Project (1008 8th Street in Three Rivers) or we can organize a pick-up within the Three Rivers area.  Contact Jay Howard here or by phone (616-550-5645)…and the sooner, the better so we have time to organize and price.

Thank you for your collaboration in sharing and sustainability!
