From a baseball autographed by Bob Feller to an old Philco tube radio, you will find most anything at the upcoming annual garage sale by Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa.  Proceeds from the garage sale – held Thursday through Saturday, May 14-16 – will go toward education and outreach programs.

Every year we transform the Jacqueline N. Blank Book Works at 123 Clark Street in Des Moines into one of the biggest garage sales around. You can find just about anything there — except clothes and shoes.
