Waste Not! Tag Sale

c/o me

From Molly Steinfeld ’15:

Worried that your Grateful Dead poster will be lonely on your dorm room walls? Wanting a love seat for some luvin’? Needing a place to heat up your cup-o-noodle? Then come to Waste Not!, Wesleyan’s annual tag sale, where all of these items and more will be available for purchase.

In the Spring, students donate items as they move out of housing. These items are then stored over the summer and available for purchase by students in the Fall. Proceeds go towards sustaining the program, and the rest goes to charity.

We have refrigerators, microwaves, chairs, couches, lamps, mirrors, and a million odds and ends. Bigger items such as furniture will be at the Fountain location, and miscellaneous items will be at the Brainerd garage. The sale will be on August 30th and 31st. There will be signs around campus to direct you to the TWO locations.
