The beautiful and the rare Action Center hosts bi-annual sale

The Action Center is giving shoppers a chance to start their holiday shopping early with its bi-annual Beautiful Junk Sale.

The event will be at the Jeffco Fairgrounds, 15200 W. 6th Ave. in Golden, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17, and 8 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18. On Oct. 17 there will be an early bird opening at 7 a.m. that costs $ 20.

Admission is $ 3 for everyone 16-years-old and older. Shoppers can bring two or more non-perishable food donations and receive $ 1 off admission.

“There’s a little bit of everything here –; books, collectibles, antiques, dolls and all kinds of other items,” said Nira Duvan, volunteer manager with the center. “The items that we put on sale are items that are donated to us that aren’t going to help clients get food on the plate or put them farther down the road to self-sufficiency.”

There will also be household items and holiday –; Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas –; items for sale.

Jill Messenger, communications coordinator with the center, said that the items are stored during the year until they are pulled out for the bi-annual sale.

“The first time we had this sale was in 1977 and raised $ 679.54,” Duvan said. “The last sale we had in March raised around $ 47,000.”

All the money raised during the sale goes the center’s client services programs to help them obtain shelter, food and the services they need to get on their feet.

During its many years, Duvan said some unique items has come through the sale, including a bed owned by former president Gerald R. Ford and a mint-condition Willie Mays baseball card.

“There truly is something for everyone and it’s a great time for all involved,” Duvan said. “You can really feel good about shopping –; you are recycling, donating to the Action Center and getting a great deal.”
