WISC-TV’s exclusive Buzzed Into Madison starring Emmy Fink & Attic Angels Classic Clothing Sale!
Angel's Attic is a garage sale shopper's delight. From Oct. 12 to Oct. 16 the old Four Seasons Mall will be a treasure trove of secondhand items. You can pick up clothing, gardening tools, artwork, or even a Christmas tree. "It ranges from furniture to the kitchen sink," says Greg Peterson, a volunteer from Plymouth who is helping set up the store. This year, one store has items full of Asian influence that were donated by a gallery. Displays include an Uzbeck gown, Moroccan handbags and even a camel saddle. "Even when I was setting it up I had to stop and say how do you sit on that thing," joked Plymouth volunteer Nancy Jensen who arranged much of the special collection. "If you want an unusual piece in your home, we probably have it for you." All the money earned from Angel's Attic goes to support the Angel Foundation. The Angel Foundation has received around $140,000 each year from the volunteer group. "So many people come in and say thank you for what we do," says Kay Melemed, co-founder and co-organizer of the event. She heads up a group of volunteers that started Angel's Attic when the American Cancer Society garage sale stopped four years ago. "It's a huge, huge endeavor," says Melemed. It's a bittersweet year for volunteers because this sale will be the last one. The sale requires volunteers to attend estate sales, arrange for pick-up of quality items, storing the items, and then displaying them. Many volunteers donate time weekly. As the sale as grown, the volunteer base has not. "It's been a very long, hard year because we are so short staffed," says Jensen. "I think we're all getting older and we don't have the energy we used to have." Many of the volunteers have been working together for more than 15 years. "We're the core," says Jensen. "So many of us have worked together for so many years so we have a real passion for it." While the volunteers are sad their fundraiser is coming to a close, they admit they will get together to see one another and may find another way to donate time or talent to the cause. "Whatever we can do to support them is really important," says Jensen. Angel's Attic volunteers also say a special thank you to Walmart, who donated the space and the electricity for the event.
