All that glitters…and more! We need your treasures for our Golden Elephant Sale.

If you find this little pachyderm irresistible, then we've got something to talk about!

If you find this little pachyderm irresistible, then we’ve got something to talk about!

On Saturday, December 3rd–don’t laugh, it’ll be here before you know it!– the Friends will be holding a Golden Elephant Sale as part of Ridgefield’s Hometown celebration.

What’s a Golden Elephant Sale? It’s a place for you to buy high-end, gently used or brand new items at ridiculously reasonable prices. These items are perfect for your holiday gift-giving lists: high-class goods that are oh-so-kind to your budget. Think of this sale as an up-scale White Elephant sale.

But before we can have a Big Top Ballyhoo of a Golden Elephant Sale, we need you to donate YOUR new or upscale, gently used items. And we need them NOW! 

We’re looking for new or like-new gadgets, jewelry, collectibles, fashion accessories, home decor items, glassware, etc. NO clothing, please! Think of the kind of items you would likely see in a nice vintage or recycled items shop. Or items that could be regifted without any hullaballoo.  

What? That catnip mouse you gave me was formerly Mr. Whisters' discarded toy? The never of some humans...

toy? The nerve of some humans…

To donate items call Ilia (360-727-3387) or  Vicki (513-335-0955) NOW.

Then, on December 3rd, come to the Ridgefield Community Center with your holiday shopping list in hand and get ready to buy, buy, buy and save, save, save!

Everything you do (donating items and buying gifts at the sale) will benefit the Ridgefield Community Library!

Thank you so much for your support!

The Friends of the Ridgefield Library are SO excited about how supportive everyone in the community is when it comes to helping to build a new, bigger, better library!

The Friends of Ridgefield Library applaud this community. You are so supportive of YOUR public library!
