Garage sale!

garage sale at UP Village

People come and go, choose and buy at our garage sale.

male buyers

Our male buyers are a bit disappointed at the displays (they're mostly for women).

female buyers

Our female buyers, on the other hand, are quite happy.

Deb is enjoining people to come and visit.

Together with some “very” helpful friends, Oki and I organized a garage sale at UP Village during the weekend. The purpose of which was to gather some funds for charitable works. Oki’s initial plan was to buy some school supplies in time for the opening of the school year and buy food to feed street kids. We always passed by the Philcoa area and it is always filled with kids begging for money. Instead of giving them money, we wanted to buy them food and fill their stomach (even for a day).

After, a whole day of selling used clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories (mostly women’s), we collected a sum of 3,000 pesos. Some friends from the office, after knowing our little activity, promised to chip in some amounts to support our good cause.

Baka may gustong mag-donate dyan, tumatanggap pa kami! :-D

what a coincidence; since spring is coming up i thought i'd gather all the older but very usable clothes and stuff we have at home and have a garage sale. hubs said we'll wait for our church to hold a big sale so we can just donate everything to our church.

great intentions, fellow blogger. may your tribe increase.

>thanks jess!

>Ferdz, ukay-ukay kase kulang na kami sa hanger. hinakot na ata namin lahat ng hanger sa bahay, hehe. we'll do it on our own. marami pang natira na damit kase isang araw lang naman kami nag-benta so Oki thought of donating the remaining clothes to Charitas Manila. They are accepting used clothes as donations also. :-)

>@photo cache: that's really nice. thanks!

galing rayts! kakatuwa kayo. disappointed nga yung mga lalake kasi para lang sa kanilang mga asawa ang mabibili nila.

my gulch said...

thanks Dom! nakakatuwa ba talaga kami? hehe. disappointed nga pero yung isang mama, nakabili ng shades na malufet so okay na din.

the donG said...

astig! pati shades pala binebenta nyo. hehehe... kaya lang baka naman pambabae nabili niya.

my gulch said...

Dom, unisex naman. parang aviator sunglasses ng Ray-Ban. Kaso yung nabili nya, "Ban-Ray" hehehe. mukhang happy naman siya kase 20 pesos lang naman benta namin.

Deb looks like a great bubbly person. Great idea this!
I'm jealous of the way you people live in T-shirts and shorts. Over here I'm doubting about switching to a less warm coat.

That's a brilliant idea! We don't really have garage sales here but most of the time whatever that we have and don't want anymore - we will send it to charity houses.
