This post is part of a hosted stay in Vermont. All opinions, writing and photographs are my own. I had been to the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain once before-- a few years ago when we just had the two older boys. We had such a great time, so I wanted to bring all 3 boys back for a visit!

On Saturday, October 20th, the Woods Hole Child Center will be hosting its 32nd annual clothing sale at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church Hall on the Falmouth Village Green. The selection of clothing is ENORMOUS and includes outerwear, women’s and men’s casuals and professional attire, children’s clothing, shoes, some children’s equipment, and even Halloween costumes. Doors will open for the sale at 9 am.
Clothing is priced very reasonably, with most items priced between $1-$5. The sale ends with a “$5-a-bag” blitz from 2-3pm. This is a very popular part of the event and many who shop earlier in the day return for this bargain bonanza. Proceeds from the clothing sale will help cover the Center’s operational expenses.
The Woods Hole Child Center Clothing Sale has been a staple in the lives of many Falmouth and greater Cape Cod residents. Many hands pitch in to make light work of this event and clothing donations are always welcome. The Child Center accepts gently used clothing and equipment, and they are happy to sell items on consignment with a 50/50 split. Interested donors are encouraged to visit the website (www.woodsholechildcenterorg) and click on the tab labeled “clothing sale” or contact the Child Center at 508-548-1773 for more information. Clothing drop off is scheduled for Friday, October 19th from 9 am- 12 pm, at St. Barnabas Hall.
The quality of clothing should be mentioned too. Year after year, shoppers are astounded at the bargains that are available! In a time of increasing awareness of our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment, recycling clothing in this manner makes this truly a “green” event.
In order to further benefit the community, the WHCC would like to work with other local charitable entities by offering them the opportunity to come to pick up the clothing at the end of the sale. This must be pre-arranged through the Child Center.
