Heritage is participating in the online auction website Everything But The House’s forum for online sales this summer with items that were donated this past spring. The items were put into different sales and some were grouped with similar items. EBTH is a fantastic source for auctioning items and have been doing a great job at it for years, so we are trusting that they are handling our items in a way that makes the most sense. As items sell, we receive our 65% portion from each sale and items continue to be sold throughout the summer. The final dollar amount that we made will be shared once it is all finished. Not all items were deemed “listable”/sellable and those items were donated to St. Vincent de Paul.
It has been a learning experience as to the process and as to what to collect for sale. When the sale is over, there will be a sit-down with the current chairperson and future chairperson to determine how to improve the process if we should attempt another sale in the future. This is a great way to bring in outside monies to our church and another big THANK YOU to ALL who contributed and to the Buckley’s for their help storing and transporting items!
