Gift for Life's Holiday Sample Sale Underway

Gift For LifeSEATTLE-Gift for Life's 17th Holiday Sample Sale has started, and will run through Jan. 12, 2014, in Edmonds, Wash.

Park Avenue Agents of the Pacific Market Center is managing the sale of donated gifts, toys, books, home accessories and more. These products are available to the public at wholesale prices, with all proceeds going to Gift for Life.

This year the sale is located at 22824 100th Ave. W in Edmonds. Merchandise has been donated from many Pacific Market Center wholesale showrooms, independent retailers and manufacturers across the country. Unsold merchandise will be donated to local AIDS-related charities such as the Lifelong AIDS Alliance and Seattle Children's Thrift Shops.

In 2011, the last time the biennial sale took place, proceeds of $30,000 were presented to Gift for Life. Since 1992, the sale has raised more than $300,000.

"The Pacific Northwest has always been a tremendous partner," said Stu Teller, chair of the Gift for Life board. "It's a region with strong ties to wholesale, healthy retail conditions and generous people; therefore, we expect this year to be another great success."
