Welcome to the FASSV PTA website
The PTA website is helpful source of information regarding the PTA and an easy way to stay in touch with what is going on at the school. New information is posted regularly to provide you with up-to-date details about all of the happenings at the school.
All parents are strongly encouraged and invited to participate in the FASSV-PTA’s activities. Your involvement in your child’s school does make a difference both for your children and the school community.
Now is the perfect time to clean out the garage and get rid of all the items that you do not want, and support the PTA at the same time!
The yearly FASSV Rummage Sale is coming up on Saturday May 19th from 9am to 3pm, at the school playground. The profits from the sale will fully go to the benefits of our children.
We will accept:
– Clothes (clean and no holes please)
– Shoes (lightly used)
– Small furniture and appliances
– Dinner and cookware
– Electronics (even broken phones)
– Sports equipment
– DVDs, CDs
– Tools, garden stuff (no lawn mowers please!)
We will not accept children car or booster seats!
The items should be clean and in good condition. Any items not sold will be given to charity after the event.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: We also need about 15 – 20 people to help on the day of the sale. If you are available for an hour or two, please sign up on Konstella, your children are welcome to help as well.
Suggested Pricing for Rummage Sale Items
Suggested price: $1 to $3 for gently used baby clothes, 25 to 50 cents for well worn clothes. Name brand items with original tags can be priced higher.
Display idea: Display baby clothes folded on tables. If you have a bunch to get rid of, sell them by the lot in bags for $5.
Suggested price: $3 to $5, unless the item still has the original tags — those can go for more.
Suggested price: $5 to $7
Display idea: Remove scuff marks and worn areas, and then line up matching pairs on a table.
Suggested price: $10 to $15
Display idea: Wash and display on hangers with extra buttons, if you still have them.
Suggested price: 50 cents to $2
Display idea: Consider having valuable jewelry pieces appraised first. Wrap a piece of cardboard with fabric and pin coordinating pieces together.
Suggested price: $1 for hard covers, 25 to 50 cents for paperbacks
DVDs, CDs, Cassettes
Suggested price: $3 to $5 each for DVDs and CDs; $1 each for cassette tapes
Display idea: If possible, keep items in their original cases. Try selling in bundles at a discount if you want to sell them quickly.
Suggested price: $2
Display idea: Display albums you include in your sale in a box with a unit price — there’s no need to label each individual sleeve!
Suggested price: No more than one third of the retail price for used items, or price new items with original packaging at half the original cost
Display idea: Keep parts and cords bundled together in clear plastic bags and run an extension cord so customers can test the item.
Toys and games
Suggested price: $1 to $3 each
Lower quality furniture
Suggested price: $10 to $30
Suggested price: A good rule of thumb is to charge no more than a third of the original price. You can always drop the price if it’s not selling.
