Get ready for the ultimate clean-out-your-closet shopping event—Sweet Ham Alabama’s Spring Clean Sale. Read on for how and why you should join the fun on Saturday, March 12 from 1-4PM at Cahaba Brewing Company.
About the Sale
Behind the event is Sweet Ham Alabama, a local real estate team with RealtySouth. Along with helping those in the Greater Birmingham Area buy and sell amazing homes, they love doing things for the community that are both fun and helpful. So, they came up with Sweet Ham Alabama’s Spring Clean Sale.
“The purpose of the event is to have a fun community-type yard sale. We will help you do the hard work of organizing the space, time and marketing, and we can all join together to have one big fun sale as everyone gets into the groove of spring cleaning!”Kristen McGee, Broker & Founder, Sweet Ham Alabama
Not only does the event give you a reason to get your spring cleaning started, it’s also a great way to support a local cause. Vendors participating in the sale will pay a $50 entry fee, which benefits First Light, a Center for Homeless Women and Children in Birmingham.
“We love giving back to our community. It’s a huge part of why [Sweet Ham Alabama and RealtySouth] have joined together. Not only do we love Birmingham Real Estate, but we love supporting and helping our community any way we can. I am always open to partnering with people for fun events and ways to give back.”Kristen McGee, Broker & Founder, Sweet Ham Alabama
You don’t have to be a vendor to donate to First Light. Currently, they are asking for cleaning supplies, toiletries and linens. For monetary donations, just scan the QR code below.
