Sell even the kitchen sinks

CARBONDALE A sale featuring everything from vintage books to metal roofing material – and even some kitchen sinks – will be held today and Sunday in Carbondale to benefit the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.This event is an interesting twist on the typical estate sale. The event not only features the items in four old buildings on and adjacent to the old Perry Ranch, it features the buildings themselves, said Scott Gilbert, president of Habitat for Humanity’s local branch.The sale is at the former Mount Sopris Ranch Bed and Breakfast. The old lodge building and some outlying structures are going to be demolished, so all materials are being made available to the public. Contractors and homeowners are welcome.The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both weekend days. Cash and major credit cards will be accepted.Gilbert said officials with Habitat arranged the sale with Tom Bailey, who recently purchased part of the Perry family ranch. The buildings were going to be demolished, so Bailey agreed to make them available for a good cause.The sale will raise funds for Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization, and prevent useful materials from heading to the landfill, Gilbert said. He is hopeful that Habitat will reap more than $20,000 from the sale.Items include a complete professional kitchen, bedroom sets, and indoor and outdoor furniture. Construction materials include oak hardwood flooring, knotty pine ceiling paneling and interior solid wood doors.To find the sale, take Highway 133 south past River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, turn right onto Mount Sopris Ranch Road and follow signs to the lodge.
