BARTLETT — After seven summers, Mount Washington Valley Habitat for Humanity will be conducting its final sale at Attitash Bear Peak lodge on Friday, Sept. 6 from 3-7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 7 from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
The lodge is located off Route 302 in Bartlett on the entrance road to the Grand Summit Hotel (4.4 miles west of the Routes 16 and 302 intersection in Glen).
The lodge is filled with good quality furniture, appliances and building materials. There are many couches, including sleep sofas, love seats and upholstered chairs. Hardwood furniture includes bureaus, cabinets, bookcases, side/end tables, coffee tables, bedroom sets, headboards, bed frames, three bunk beds, dining sets and chairs. Lamps, including an arc lamp, mirrors, framed pictures and rugs are also available. Appliances include one refrigerator, a small freezer, three stoves, three washers, three dryers, a small dishwasher, two microwaves, an air conditioner and more. Building materials include several interior and exterior doors, bi-fold doors, three porcelain sinks (two new) a skylight and various tools and hardware items. Other items include lawn furniture, a Pilate’s reformer table, and more.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase good quality furniture to furnish college student dorm rooms and apartments. All items are priced to sell and most sofas and love seats will be marked down 25 percent. Several not-for-profit organizations, including the Plymouth, NH Habitat ReStore and our current homeowner partners have been invited to arrive at 1 p.m. on Sept. 7 and take items that they can use. A few unsold items will be placed in our 53-foot tractor-trailer to be sold next year.
Readers can view examples of items and bid on selected items in the sale on mwv-habitat.org. All items are sold as is and must be paid for with cash, check or credit card and taken away by the new owner during the sale.
People wishing to donate items for future sales should call the Habitat office at (603) 356-3832 and leave a message. Each caller will be contacted to arrange a pick up of the items on a day that is convenient for the donor.
All proceeds from each sale are used for the purchase of construction materials to enable Habitat to build affordable homes for qualified MWV neighbors. To learn more about becoming a Habitat homeowner, call (603) 356-3832 or go to mwv-habitat.org
We want to offer our sincere thanks to John Lowell, President Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain for his generosity and staff support in enabling Habitat to use bear peak lodge for the last seven years.
Our home furnishings sales have been our signature fund raising activity and have historically contributed 20-30 percent of the cost of materials for home construction. Our efforts not only aid us in our mission to provide decent and affordable living space for deserving families who are employed by local businesses but also re-purpose furniture, appliances and building materials.
We are seeking another venue to conduct future sales. The Habitat board is considering various options and is seeking assistance from local property owners to provide at least 5,000 square foot space from which to display and sell merchandise. Please contact us at (603) 356-3832 with your thoughts on how we might continue to serve Mount Washington Valley in pursuing our mission.
