Clearing House Ltd. to hold sidewalk sale for charity

September 01, 2012|Lorraine Mirabella

Consignment shop Clearing House Ltd. has scheduled its annual sidewalk sale for charity for Wednesday, selling furniture, jewelry, china, crystal and other household goods.

All proceeds from the sale, to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will go to the House of Ruth Maryland.

The Timonium shop has run the charity event sale for 22  years.

 "It is my favorite day of the year, knowing we are selling affordable household items during challenging economic times while helping to support the much-needed services at The House of Ruth," Lisa Hudson, co-owner of The Clearing House, said in a statement.

The Clearing House has donated nearly $125,000 over 20 years to local agencies that help women and children in need. The shop is aiming to bring that total to $140,000 with this year's sidewalk sale.

 Sandi Timmins, executive director at the House of Ruth Maryland, called The Clearing House "an amazing supporter" of the domestic violence center. BB&T is also supporting the event, she said.

Clearing House owners say crowds usually show up in advance of the 10 a.m. opening. The shop is accepting only cash and checks for Sidewalk Sale purchases. Contact the Clearing House at 410-561-4546 for more information.
