The Federated Church in Sycamore will hold its annual Thrift Sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Sale items will include clothing, household goods, linens and bedding, electronics, books, knick-knacks, toys and games.
A silent auction will be added to the sale this year. Alongside the thrift sale is a garden sale featuring painted bird houses, hanging sun catchers with and without mirrors, violets, ever-blooming Josee lilacs and other plants.
This year’s proceeds will help fund the church’s School Supply project and the Welcome Café at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of DeKalb. Proceeds from the plant/garden sale will be used for the church’s new courtyard garden.
For 11 years, Federated Church has provided new back-to-school backpacks filled with school supplies to children served by various local social service agencies. Nearly 400 backpacks have been provided to students in need through this program.
The church is located at 612 W. State St. Parking is available at the rear of the building; entrance to the sale is off the parking lot.
