Everything is marked down at least 50 percent at the Discovery garage sale today and tomorrow that benefits the American Cancer Society (6731 Boone Av. N., Brooklyn Park, 651-255-8716). Winter clothes can be purchased for $5 per bag and artwork is 75 percent off. Sale hours on Friday, Aug. 13 are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday's hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Discovery occasional sales replaced the American Cancer Society's World's Largest Garage Sale, formerly held in October. The sales held once a month this summer have not been as successful as organizers hoped.
On the last gasp Aug. 26-30, new back to school items will be added. Remainingt items still get the 50 percent discount but brand new items added for the sale are not discounted. But on the last day of the sale, Aug. 30, everything, including new items, is free from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
