about the tag sale
MAAP holds twice annual Tag Sale Fundraisers in the Spring and Fall. The sales take place across the driveway from MAAP in the Friends Room of the Friends Meeting at Cambridge and includes clothing that is of good to new quality and is not of use to MAAP community members (pieces that need to be dry cleaned or are otherwise costly to maintain) as well as vintage and designer clothing, finer housewares, antiques, and jewelry. Some items that do not sell and are practical are put out in our free store for MAAP community members, while other items are saved for the next sale. Proceeds from the Tag Sale make up 10% of MAAP's annual budget. While we set aside items for upcoming sales year round. If you have items you think would be useful for the sale, or any items from our urgent needs wishlist, they can be brought to MAAP on Tuesdays from 9am-7pm or Thursdays from 9am-3pm. We stop accepting donations for the Tag Sale one week before it takes place.
