Many Thanks to 2023 Un-Tagsale Participants
Over $2,300 was raised for scholarships for Conway graduating seniors.
Once again, our annual “Un-Tagsale”, held at Pumpkin Hollow this year. was a success, adding to our funds for Conway’s graduating seniors. This year we made $2524.60, in spite of the need to use our raindate, having lost some participants due to that change and the nice family event at the Sportsman’s Club on Sunday. There are so many to thank!
Thanks, first and foremost, to our generous donors who either dropped off treasures for us to sell at the Festival Table or those who purged their basements and garages, filled up their cars and trucks and set up and stood by their tables from 8:00 to 1:00, eager for those tables to empty and the donation jars to fill up! They could have had a yardsale at their home and reaped all the rewards, but, no, they chose to give to our teens. Thank you!
Then thanks to those who came from Conway or afar to look for a tool or a quilt or a jigsaw puzzle or a pair of skis or a canoe (Yes, we sold a canoe for the minimum price of $125!) and then gave us a generous donation. One fellow even checked out all the tables, chose nothing but came over to give us a $20 bill. Thank you!
Lastly, thanks to our team of volunteers who placed signs in 5 towns, placed ads in local papers and social media, put up flyers in countless stores, set up tables, took down tables and brought the leftover items to the grateful Salvation Army. Thank you all!

What’s an Un-Tagsale?
There are no tags, no prices, no haggling. (Minimum prices have been set for more valuable items.) All items can be purchased with a generous donation from the buyer.
