Thank you for making the Mayfair Yard sale a resounding success!

A huge THANK YOU to Maine's First Ship (MFS) and Gayla Teague, Joanne Luneau and Merry Chapin for their tremendous generosity in running the May Fair Yard Sale! 

They raised close to $800 and shared their enthusiasm for this special place and the MFS/BFSA collaboration with many Freight Shed visitors on Saturday. 

Thanks to all the people who donated great items for the sale - your donations became funds which will go directly into paying down what we owe on our new roof. The Freight Shed also now has a great collection of dishes, mugs and flat ware that came in during the last few winter markets. 

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped bake, gather items, price and display as well as all those who put in a very long day Saturday: Lani Ganter, Joan Detel, Alison Hepler, Jean Tompkins, Camille Kauffunger and Wren, Kitty Wheeler, Sukey Heard and Bridget Healy and to Will Blake for lending, delivering and donating a table at a moments notice! 

Last but not least, thank you to the steady stream of shoppers who ultimately made the day a great success!

Calling all Volunteers!

Now we will be spending the next month and a half working on repairs and site work. If you are available to help any time on Wednesday between 9-3 please let us know. Hands-on-Fridays May 17th and 31st will be from 4 until 5:30 PM and end in a Pot Luck Dinner. If you are interested in helping out, please email us to get more information

Also tickets are still available for Maine's First Ship's Dinner at Maxwell's on May 14th for more information email our friends at Maine's First Ship.

Again we thank you!

Editors note:At the request of her fellow board members and unbeknownst to her, the volunteers, friends and members of the Freight Shed would like to thank Wiebke Theodore for all she does for the alliance -- her commitment and unwavering enthusiasm is inspiring to all!
Thank you Wiekbe!
