Q: What follows the pre-wedding mad rush of decor-acquisition and stuff-compiling?

(Well, sure, the wedding and the reception follow, but happens after that?)

A: The sudden and sometimes panicky realization that you've got a whole lot of stuff and nowhere to put it.

If that scene is familiar to you, listen up: our friends at Get Hitched Give Hope are collecting gently used wedding items for their upcoming fundraiser. HopeChest, a wedding decor rummage sale, will benefit the dream-making escapades of our favorite wedding-industry do-gooders. 

Don't worry, we'll let you know all the details about the actual sale as soon as possible but for now:

Bring wedding attire, accessories, DIY supplies and completed projects, signage, paper goods, reusable centerpieces, props, antiques, linens and napkins, extra favors, vases, votives, and related items to Public Storage in South Lake Union at 700 Fairview Ave N on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1 from 9 to 2.

Can't make it? email donate @ gethitchedgivehope.com to inquire about pick-up.
