Everything must go! The Jones Building renovation is about to begin, and everything has to be out -- moved, stored, sold or discarded.  There are tables and chairs for children and adults, desks, shelving, school supplies, children's toys, cribs and other baby items, and SO MUCH MORE!

The sale is open to Idlewild members on Thursday, July 6. Professional dealers will be welcome on Friday, July 6, and it will be open to the public on Saturday, July 8. Cash and credit cards accepted. No checks. Buyers are responsible for their own load out. All proceeds go to the More Idlewild capital campaign fund.

There are several upright pianos free to a good home. They need a little loving care, but are free. You must pick them up. Call the church office at 901-726-4681 or email  Jenni Brooks to arrange a time to pick them up.

Volunteers needed! Please SIGN UP ONLINE  or contact Dawn Kvande if you can help during the sale.
