Red Cross Hosts "Bazaar, Yard Sale and Car Wash Extravaganza" Saturday

Volunteers from the American Red Cross of Santa Monica will host a "guest vendor" bazaar, yard sale and car wash extravaganza, Saturday, July 21, from 8 a.m. to 4.p.m at the chapter, 1450 11th Street in Santa Monica, near Broadway.

A bazaar will be held Inside the Santa Monica Red Cross. Many unique items including jewelry, candles, consumer electronics, designer clothing, trinkets, artwork and crafts from a number of artisans and vendors will be on sale. All items are all new and many are unusual and beautiful one-of-a-kind items. And, ace World War II photographer, "Flash" Pacheco, will be on hand to take "old time" vintage style photos of individuals, couples and families.

There will also be many great bargains and a few hidden treasures in the adjoining "yard sale" in the chapter parking lot. The Santa Monica Red Cross has cleaned out its closet. Along with donations of almost every conceivable kind from friends of the chapter to local businesses, shoppers will surely find something they can't live without at irresistible prices -- including furniture, computer equipment and one of a kind collectibles. Hint: Don't be afraid to haggle for an even better deal.

While shopping, you can get the family jalopy washed by American Red Cross youth volunteers. Cars are $6, SUVs and light trucks are $8 and $10. All vehicles will be lovingly hand-washed and towel-dried by Santa Monica Red Cross youth who have all taken special Red Cross "car beautiful" classes.

Y'all come and clean up. All proceeds from the Bazaar, parking lot sale and car wash extravaganza will benefit youth programs and other activities at the Santa Monica chapter of the American Red Cross.
