Forget Black Friday!
Shoppers will find bargains galore at the Swissvale Library annual Holiday Bake Sale, which also will include a first-ever ReGift Sale, Dec. 14 and 15 at the library on 1800 Monongahela Ave.
A wonderland of high-quality new, like-new, and vintage items have been donated to the sale, and are priced at $5 or less to make shopping affordable for children and folks on a budget.
Shoppers will find serving pieces, crystal stemware, artwork, fine linens, jewelry, tabletop décor, clothes, photo frames, and much more. “Everything is top-quality, and priced to sell,” says Sharon Ramsey, president of Friends of Swissvale Library, which is holding the event to raise money for library improvements.
“Although our bake sale is a long-time tradition, the ReGift Sale is a new addition, and should be a lot of fun,” Ramsay said. “There are plenty of bargains, so people should come early for the best selection.”
Shoppers in the market for brand-new hand-knitted items will find scarves, hats, totes, scrubbies, and tea towels by Swissvale’s own Pam & Donna.
As always, an array of home-made treats by experienced bakers will be for sale.
Pecan rolls, boiled fudge, blondies, carrot cake, cupcakes and other traditional Christmas goodies can be purchased by the piece, the dozen, or in customized trays beautifully wrapped for party-going or gift-giving.
Two raffle baskets will be drawn, as well.
All proceeds benefit the library. Hours are Dec. 14 from 10 am to 4 pm, and Dec. 15 from 9 am to 4 pm.
