The indoor yard sale features gently used toys, children’s furnishings, clothing for men, women and children, household items, and books, with items to refresh children’s shelves and wardrobes and to help people find their next Halloween costumes or locate that unusual gift. This is also an excellent opportunity to recycle goods within the community. Also featured are baked goods, and a light lunch is available.

The Nearly New Boutique will be located in the small room on the north end of the building, with items that have the tags still on them or are nearly new in excellent condition.

Items may be donated to the sale until Friday, March 20, at noon. The nursery school was established by St. Philip’s in 1960 and currently enrolls 32 children ages 2 to 5 from Garrison, Cold Spring, Fort Montgomery, Putnam Valley and Peekskill. For further information, call 845-424-4209.
