FUSIT (First Unitarian Society of Ithaca)

Online Treasure Auction


Different from our past recycle sales, we're now offering a new and exciting venue to share our treasures with each other, our family/friends, and those living in the larger Ithaca community.  But our goal is the same:  to find new homes for some of our things, while raising money to support our ministry and work.  Thank you for taking part in this new format.
