Bundle Up: Fall Fair Outerwear Tag Sale

Are you the parent of a young child who spends a lot of time outside and outgrows outerwear as quickly as you buy it? We are collecting donations of outerwear, boots, and woolies to sell (at great prices!) at our table at the Fall Fair. If you have any pieces that are in a good condition, clean, and ready to sell, please bring them to the labelled box in the Rose Garden building or to Christina Dixcy in the Administration Cottage.

As with all School Store sales, proceeds will go toward the HVWS operating budget. Plan to visit our table at the fair to shop for outerwear for your growing kiddos as well as our Waldorf-inspired games, crafts, and household items. Feel free to e-mail if you have any questions: danielsnatasha@hotmail.com.
