Holiday Help

Planning on celebrating your Fourth of July weekend with some, uh, garage sale hunting? Well, it makes sense on some level—holiday weekends are a buyer's market when it comes to rummaging through stacks of clothes, records and furniture on people's front lawns, so if you're stuck in the city, you may as well make the most of the lazy few hours between Independence Day parades and early afternoon BBQs. And if you're jonesin' for some Hawaiian shirts and dingy end tables, then be charitable and shop at Dawn Burton's fund-raising garage sale for local animal rescues like Paws in the City and New Beginnings Cat Rescue. Beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, check out the goods at 4113 Windsor Drive in Garland, and know that every purchase goes directly to helping local pets find a good home. Call 214-703-9612.
Fri., June 30; Sat., July 1; Sun., July 2
