The second annual A-OK (Arts for Orcas Kids) garage sale will be on Saturday, March 16, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Orcas Island School cafeteria to raise much needed funds to support this program.
There are items for everyone: jewelry, kitchen, collectibles, antiques, fishing reels, glass ware, art supplies, kid’s toys, sporting goods, linens, pottery, small furniture and much more. There are two new offerings this year. “Artist Alcove” is a space where island artists have donated work that will be sold at rock bottom prices. Some participating artists are JoEllen Moldoff, Bets Nelson, Mary Jane Elgin, Carol Anderson, Leon Rosenblat, Marilee Holm, Colleen Stewart, Andrea Cohen, Jean Agapoff, Robyn Gorden, Sue Roland, BJ Arnold and Dick Arnold. There will also be a bulletin board listing of donated items that are too large to bring to the sale. These items may be purchased and picked up at the donators’ home.
At 2:30 p.m., attendees will be asked to leave the building for a short time while some items are marked down to half-price. Upon returning to the sale room each person will be provided with a bag to fill up for $5 and an opportunity to buy the discounted items separately.
