Although the Saturday crowds put a dent in our stock of pre-loved garden tools, we still have some great bargains for you to check out!   While supplies last, we have hand tools, decor, patio furniture, lawn mowers, and more.  (Your purchases will support our work to create green jobs, reduce waste, educate the public about reuse, and provide free supplies to nonprofits & neighbors in need.)

Then, the party starts at 11:00 am on Sunday!

There will be prizes for people and pets dressed in garden party finery.
