Hey Fanz!

Miroslav & Brian

Yet more deals!

As I mentioned last month, I am now managing the business operations of the Furniture Bank, a registered charity that collects donated furniture and gives it to families coming out of shelters and setting up an apartment with nothing.

We also sell some furniture, which means you can do some good while doing yourself a favour. To wit:

Antiques & Collectibles Sale

Saturday, October 14
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Come out and discover hidden treasures while supporting your community!
Great prices on sofas, desks, dining room tables, silverware, and other collectible goodies!

Light refreshments! Live music!

All proceeds go to support our work for families in transition.

The Furniture Bank is a non-profit organization supported by your donations.

We collect and pick up gently used furniture and household items
that we give to families leaving shelters and hostels.
