Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015 from 9am to 3pm :
- Visit this annual GIANT used furniture sale on the Amherst Common!
- Donate $5 or more and be in the running for an Adventure Package!
Thrifty local shoppers and students have a chance to furnish the place where they live while supporting their community at the annual “From Trash to Treasures Giant Used Furniture Sale”, benefitting the Amherst Survival Center. Newly arrived college students and Valley residents alike rely on the sale to outfit their dorm rooms, homes and offices at bargain prices at this annual rite of fall in the Pioneer Valley. We’ve been collecting furniture all summer—now we need buyers! Help us spread the word about the sale! Download a flyer, post it and share it with our community!
We’ve accepted and will be selling: 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. By 9am, opening time on Saturday morning, lines will have already formed for the initial rush for a bargain or an unusual find.
Buying furniture on Saturday, September 12th: we accept cash, personal checks and credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) to make purchases.
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 Saturday, September 12th to your curbside only. Please don’t expect our volunteers to come into your home.
