Womanspace has begun accepting donations for its long-running Glitzy Garage Sale. Donations can be taken to the Womanspace campus at 3333 Maria Linden Drive in Rockford. Most items are welcome, although there are some exceptions. Unacceptable items include encyclopedias; textbooks; magazines; appliances needing major repair; medical/healthcare equipment; TVs; computers; monitors; traverse rods or curtain rods; dirty, stained or torn clothing; large couches (unless they are in great condition — call Womanspace first); water bed frames or any mattresses; tires; infant/toddler car seats; and Christmas trees.
