HLR Stuff Sale in the works for fall

The school year just finished, but Three Sisters is already looking forward to August as they plan to hold a Home Learning Resources Stuff Sale (HLR Stuff Sale) in central Iowa.

The HLR Stuff Sale began as an idea presented to Three Sisters by a local mom. It was designed to have families sell their used material at “used” prices -- a win-win situation in which a benefit would be seen in the pocketbook and in the homeschooling of the shoppers. Successfully held in April 2008, another mom requested a fall Stuff Sale. Many families focus on school plans in fall before a new year begins rather than in spring at the end of the school year.

A poll is open at the Three Sisters blog for shoppers to vote for their preferred event date of Sept. 5, 12, 19, or 26. The poll will stay open until Aug. 1, 2008. Low voter turn-out will result in the cancellation of a fall Stuff Sale. Comments and ideas for the sale can be sent to Cathy and Julia at

The HLR Stuff Sale will remain admission free. Three Sisters is dedicated to promoting the Stuff Sale to local home school support groups; participation as a vendor or a shopper is open for everyone in the home school community.
