Update Toy and Baby Gear Sale

The SCDC's 15th Annual Toy and Baby Gear Sale is on Saturday November 7th from 9am to 12pm at the Coolidge School on 1 Florence Street in Shrewsbury. People sell their gently used toys, baby gear, clothing, books, etc. We will have tables available for purchase and cost $25 (before November 1st. and $35 after that date) and you keep everything you make at the sale!! It's our biggest fundraiser and goes towards classes and programming. Also we are adding a couple more things. Admission is $2, but someone will win half the money we collected in a 50/50 raffle. For every table you visit you get a raffle ticket (so the raffle tickets are free!!!). Also we are having several businesses that cater to children there. They will have information and most will have a raffle item. A local Girl Scout troop will also be there selling coffee and baked items. It should be an incredible event. Let me know if you would like to purchase a table. There are typically 300+ people who come every year, so if you have things to sell this is the place to do it!! Message me or email me at to reserve your table.

Our Annual Toy and Baby Gear Sale will be held on Saturday November 7th from 9am to 12pm at the Coolidge School. I am now selling tables for the event. There will be even be more advertising this year and more enticing for people to visit every table. We will collect $2 at the door and that money will go into a 50/50 raffle. The person who wins the raffle will win half the money that we collected. They get a ticket for each table they visit. this way it creates even more traffic to the sale! I am selling tables for $25 if paid by November 1st. After that date the tables will be $35. You can rent as many tables as you wish. Please contact me at to reserve your table. And note there are a limited amount of tables to be rented and your table is only confirmed once you pay for it. I will give you directions on how to pay using paypal.
