TRASH TO TREASURES (T2T) has been Amherst’s Annual Used Furniture Sale!
Usually held in early September, on the Amherst Common.
TRASH TO TREASURES IS NOT SCHEDULED IN 2016.
We recommend attending UMass’s New2U Tag Sale which is scheduled for Sunday, September 4.
Trash to Treasures depends on community support by:
- donating furniture starting in April/May
- attending the sale
- buying furniture
THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO MAKE TRASH TO TREASURES 2015 SUCH A SUCCESS!
Other local places to buy or donate used furniture, to be listed here shortly.
Thrifty local shoppers and students have had a chance to furnish the place where they live while supporting their community at the annual “From Trash to Treasures Giant Used Furniture Sale”, benefiting the Amherst Survival Center. Newly arrived college students and Valley residents alike relied on the sale to outfit their dorm rooms, homes and offices at bargain prices at this annual event in the Pioneer Valley.
The sale has included: bookcases, coffee/end tables, desks, dressers/nightstands, sofas (no sleeper sofas), tables and chairs. Immediately after Labor Day, a giant tent goes up on the Amherst Common in preparation for the sale. Throughout the week, hundreds of pieces of gently used furniture are brought under the tent. They’re cleaned, and priced.
BUYING FURNITURE AT THE SALE
We also deliver! Yes, you can come to the sale and purchase items, and for a small fee of $15 per item, we will deliver it IN AMHERST throughout the day on Sale Day to your curbside only. Please don’t expect our volunteers to come into your home.
We want to thank our generous sponsors for making this event possible and for showing their commitment to helping our neighbors in need. Please thank our sponsors for supporting the Amherst Survival Center.
