ORA Yard Sale at the ReBuilding Center

The Oregon Remodelers Association is holding it’s annual yard sale at the ReBuilding Center 3625 N. Mississippi this weekend on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd from 9:00am – 3:00pm. Since I’m the one putting together the sale I figured I’d give people the head’s up that this is an incredible opportunity to score on building materials and home improvement stuff. Each year our members donate items for a month, and in past years we’ve received brand new Milgard windows, pallets of laminate flooring, tile, doors, bath fixtures, shelving, lighting fixtures, stovetops, appliances, and anything else that’s either new or “gently used.” The pricing is really good, and you can usually do some negotiating to get the price down to what you can afford. We’re easy that way. There will also be contractors volunteering at the sale who can help people with questions.

The sale is a collaboration between the ORA, Metro and the ReBuilding Center to promote recycling and reuse, and increase community awareness of resources available for homeowners. We’ll be giving out Metro “Toolkits”, their recycling guidebook, which includes information on building material recycling, salvage locations, and compost outlets. Part of the proceeds from the sale will benefit ReFIT, an organization that provides free remodeling services for the elderly and people with disabilities who aren’t eligible for other home repair programs.

The coolest thing is this year Da Rib Shack has set up shop in the lot next door, and I’m trying to work out a special with Tray for the weekend. It looks like the weather is going to hold out, so I encourage everyone to stop by and check it out. I’m looking forward to seeing what we get this year. It’s like Christmas when we open the storage container. Last year I scored on full sheets of iridescent tile for four bucks. I haven’t done anything with it yet, but it looks very pretty sitting in the box.
