The Queen's First Ever Garage Sale

Friday, March 18 / 6:00 - 8:00
Saturday, March 19 / 10:00 - 5:00
Sunday, March 20 / Noon - 5:00

Do you have old craft supplies that are bringing you down? Have you switched focus and wonder what you're ever going to do with those supplies/tools/stamps that SEEMED like such a good idea at the time? Would you like to get rid of that stuff and get some dough so you can buy all the cool new stuff? We have come up with the perfect solution.... We're excited to announce The Queen's Ink FIRST EVER "GARAGE SALE".

If you have items you'd like to sell but don't want to have your own sale or list them on an online/auction site, we'll sell them for you! Here's how it will work:

1.   Decide you're going to participate in the sale, call right now, then stop by The Queen's Ink for a set of garage sale tags. You'll get 60 tags for $10.

2.   Sort through all your stuff and price the castaways. Bundle items, sell higher priced items individually, make themed packs---how you use your 60 tags is totally up to you! Put a price on each of your tags (just write it with a pen or marker), and bag or package them. (Please, ONLY craft supplies---we reserve the right to reject odd things like old shoes, baby chairs and handbags.)

3.   Deliver them to The Queen's Ink between now and Monday, March 14th at 5:00 p.m.

4.   No need to worry about the items that don't sell---we will arrange for them to be donated! Visit The Queen's Ink on Monday, March 21st and receive a ROYAL GIFT CERTIFICATE totalling your proceeds from the sale, minus our 20% commission (which will cover the cost of staff, credit cards, and set-up/execution).It's that easy!

For those of you interested in buying, SAVE THE DATE NOW! The garage sale will open Friday, March 18th at 6:00 p.m. with a "charity sale"! For admission to this preview sale, bring a can or package of dog food (to be donated to BARKS) and canned goods (for the Howard County Food Bank). When the doors "open" at 6:00 p.m., you'll get first chance to buy!

The official opening of the Garage Sale will be Saturday March 19th at 10:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome---no admission fees! There will still be PLENTY of goodies of all types for all shoppers. We will continue the Garage Sale on Sunday March 20th from Noon to 5:00 p.m.

But wait---there's more---on Monday, March 21st, all remaining items will be half price! Shop from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., your last chance to get your bargain goodies until our next sale!

All remaining items will be donated to the art departments of several local schools.
