It would have been nice if you could have posted what the acceptable items were as we do not recall ever getting this flyer and we have attended several of the events but cannot remember if furniture is accepted.

Barbara, I just posted the list of what to bring (and not bring) from the last event. It does not specifically mention furniture, but doesn't say not to bring it—I would call them to make sure.

Bicycles, motor oil and other things were not allowed this time. Actually I wouldn't have gone if I had known that. They didn't take much and it wasn't well attended from what I understand
