I see the entry forms are in the Braidwood paper and some other businesses in town. Hopefuly there will be a lot like last year. I think there were over 100 listed sales last year.

How can someone take donations and sell them to keep all money to themselves. I rather give my stuff to goodwill where someone can get it for free.That place makes no sense to me, get a real job!

Goodwill does make money, but all proceeds go to help shelters and battered women get back on their feet. Even the employees are people from shelters who have had a hard time finding jobs.
I would much rather give my leftovers to Goodwill too then to the "lady" who runs that thrift shop!

Goodwill sells the donations you give them. There are Goodwill stores everywhere.

If you are looking to give leftover items to help people then do what I did. I live in Wilmington and I wanted to give my leftover garage sale items to someone who helped the community and I didn't know so I checked with City Hall. They said check with the local churches like St. Rose and the food pantry and maybe embasy care nursing home I made a couple of calls to some of these places and they told me where to take my things. I was very satisfied and will continue to donate when I can I suggest that maybe you do the same.

I post any left overs on freecycle. I would rather see the items go to someone who needs them rather than throwing them away. And it could make a world of difference to someone.

I think that is very nice of you but FYI I used to do the same but then I found out my sister-in-law watches free cycle and also free items on Creigslist she will go and pick your items and then sell them on Ebay she told me that she knew a lot of people that do this, she has made quite a lot of money doing this.

There will always be people like your sister in law who takes advantage of good people. I am sure much is appreciated by who ever gets the items.

Braidwood res. The Thrift store in town does give back to the community check with several local churches, she has given back to the local food pantry has even given some of the donations given to her to another towns help center. Yes Goodwill takes in donations, makes a profit themselves they aslo have yes helped out the homeless in JOLIET but thank god we have no homeless here or who knows she would help If given the chance. I am not sorry to say I just went threw a though time and went in to look per churches advice, this lady gave me, well clothes, dishes, couch and love seat etc.. FREE so does this sound like someone who is looking to take and take not give back I think NOT. She is people helping people. God help your evil soul.

Carrie has never GIVEN anything to anyone in her entire life! She is a taker- not a giver! This post is the biggest lie I have ever seen.
