Visit Paper Luxe at the Fircrest Community Yard Sale 2022

Jun 17, 2022by Carli Ricker

After a productive spring cleaning, The Kindship’s three Fircrest shops are ecstatic to join the Fircrest Community Yard Sale. Our “yard” will be in the parking lot in front of The Crest. All three of the shops will be open inside for regular hours. 

This year’s yard sale is scheduled for June 18 from 9am - 4pm. As proud Fircrest residents we’re as thrilled to see this event back on our calendars as we are to participate! 

We also recognize that the following day, June 19, is also Juneteenth. This historic day commemorates the emancipation of Black slaves in the United States. At The Kindship, we acknowledge the significance of this day in the history of our country. 

To honor and celebrate Juneteenth, all proceeds will be donated to the Tacoma Urban League. This fantastic organization’s mission statement is, “To assist African Americans and other underserved urban residents in the achievement of social equality and economic independence.”

If you’re a fan of our shops, looking for a great deal, or just want to stop by on your Saturday walk, we’d love for you to say hello! Who knows, maybe you’ll walk away with the perfect card or your new favorite home piece.
