Items go quickly so mark your calendar for our next scheduled date. Don't miss the bargains and fun! Trash to Treasure is free and open to the public.
The Plant Sale is held annually in the spring with the clubhouse packed with beautiful plants donated by garden club members, along with garden magazines, books, crafty garden objects, and yard art for purchase. In addition, there are lots of delicious baked goods made and/or donated by garden club members for sale in the clubhouse, and various vendors outside on the garden grounds. The Plant Sale is free and open to the public.
Bi-Annual (Spring, Fall)
Bargains galore! The Clothing Sale is a bi-annual event held at the clubhouse. Garden club members scour and empty their closets and drawers for this event. Savvy shoppers can find everything from dresses, pants, blouses, shirts, shoes, and accessories for $1.00! It is a favorite event for both garden club members and community. Proceeds are used by the garden club for community projects. Any left over clothing or accessories are donated to local charities. The Clothing Sale is free and open to the public.
