Mullanphy Wall Raising


Normally we wait until spring to hold a yard sale, but this year, since we are raising money to help the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group save the Mullanphy Emigrant Home, let's start the sale a few months early.

We have a solid oak, center leaf, pedestal table and chairs (very similar to the one in the picture above, just stained a few shades darker), taking up scarce space in our basement.

So, in order to free up some walking around room, and help out the ONSLRG, we are offering to sell the set to the highest bidder (minimum bid $50) and donate all proceeds to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group. Local delivery is available. If interested, please email me at rbonasch@sbcglobal.net. Deadline to submit bids is next Friday, December 22 at 5:00 PM.

Rick, this is a great thing you are doing. You may also consider ebay as an option to raise more funds and reach a larger buying audience. You can select items for local delivery or pick up only on ebay.

just a thought,
Mark

Great idea! What about a Mullanphy Yard Sale fundraiser? We all certainly have stuff to sell.

Other ideas for raising money:
Mullanphy Benefit Concert
Mullanphy Auction
Mullanphy Dinner Dance

I have items I would like to donate to a Mullanphy Yard sale as well. If you need help organizing something like that let me know.
