Weekend Yard Sale Fund-raiser!


Hello Vancouver Lilyites! Many of you may know my better (larger?) half, Mr. Scott, as the hairy gentleman on the Smoking Lily website. While I will admit he is my favourite beardo, Scott, like most people these days, is also someone whose life has been touched by cancer; when our good friend, Jason, announced this Christmas that he would be leading a team for the second time in the annual Ride to Conquer Cancer event, Scott joined up right away! (Despite his young age, Jason was widowed several years ago when his wife, Allison, lost a twenty year struggle with Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer. Jason formed the team, Allie's Allies, in her honour, with the lion's share of funds raised going specifically to childhood cancer research.) Scott and I will be hosting a yard sale at our home this Sunday to fund-raise for the upcoming ride. In addition to great clothes, weird ceramics, and an assortment of furniture,we are particularly excited to announce that our bibliophile associate, Sean "Books On the Radio" Cranbury (pictured below in a classic flaming pink Jesus tee from last year) will be donating a substantial selection of books from his impressive home library. Lily book geeks take note: there are going to be some amazing books on offer! There will also be delicious home baking and refreshments available, so come on by! 2872 East Georgia (just west of Renfrew, we're the little blue house with cream and black trim), this Sunday, May 13, from 10:00 to 4:00. We'd love to see you! Erin :) P.S. If you have something kicking around your house you've been meaning to get rid of, feel free to drop it off to us the day of--we'd be very happy to sell it for you and donate the proceeds to the cause! ;p
