June 7, 2014!


Every year, in conjunction with the 44th Street Garage Sale Event, DOMUS raises money for a not-for-profit organization by selling donated items.  For the past three years we have chosen NOVA HOPE for HAITI as the beneficiary of our fundraising work and have raised over $16,000.00! Volunteers from NOVA HOPE for HAITI helped with the sale and made the day a huge success.  We especially love this organization because literally ALL OF THE MONEY RAISED goes directly towards medicine or goods for the people! All of the volunteers traveling to Haiti pay their own way! Even the Doctors and Nurses!  It has been an extreme pleasure to do whatever we can to help them.This year we have chosen NOVA HOPE for HAITI again to receive the money we raise at the Garage Sale.Please read further on how you can help with this fundraiser.

The garage sale is SATURDAY, JUNE 7, (rain date Saturday, June 14) on 44th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues in New York.


DONATE ITEMS YOU DON’T WANT, CANNOT USE, OR HAVE NO ROOM FOR!    Take this opportunity to do your spring cleaning and simplify your life! Items must be clean and in sale-able condition: household items, sets of china, SMALL pieces of furniture, music, videos and books, as well as accessories would be great, (not clothing,  as we don’t have facilities for people to try them on, or anything broken/unusable).

  • PLEASE NOTE: we only have a few tables and one day to sell these items, so we need things of value in every price range. A quick test is to ask yourself if you would give the items to a friend. If the answer is No, then we cannot sell them.

ASK THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR TO DONATE ITEMS they produce or have a surplus of.  Many Companies have samples or other items they want to find a good home for, so why not give them for a good cause?

E-MAIL THIS TO ANYONE YOU KNOW. Even if you don’t have any unwanted items, maybe your friends do. Please forward this letter to them: the more varied the merchandise, the better.

DONATE YOUR TIME TO HELP US STAFF THE TABLES ON SATURDAY, JUNE 1! The garage sale brings hundreds of people to 44th Street, so we need help in selling the donated items. We generally have 2-3 hour shifts and we provide drinks and snacks. The day starts at 8.30 and ends at about 6-6.30. It’s great fun and it’s for a good cause!

DONATE MONEY! If you can’t donate items or your time, please consider donating money to NOVA Hope for Haiti.

Please contact DOMUS: to discuss items you want to donate or for any questions you may have. Please make sure you enter “GARAGE SALE” in the title.
PLEASE NOTE: At DOMUS we choose very carefully the organizations we support, so that money we raise can make a strong positive impact on the people we want to help. Because NOVA is an organization run by volunteers, ALL the funds we will raise will go directly to helping the people in need.

DOMUS is at 413 West 44 Street, between 9th and 10th Avenue. We are open from 12 to 8 Tuesday through Saturday, and 12 to 6 on Sunday.
