Donating Furniture

Thank you for considering donations of furniture to our Decorators-Designers-Dealers sale.  We accept new and gently used furniture, home furnishings and accessories for our sale from early September through mid-May.  The items we collect throughout the year will be displayed by our designers and sold at the event to raise funds that will go directly toward our mission of providing an enriching camping experience to over 150 physically challenged children.


To schedule a house call please contact Patsy Lynch at 631-283-5847 or  For items in New York City, you may e-mail photos to Patsy at the above address.

Last day for furniture pick up is Friday, May 22nd.  

We reserve the right to refuse any items that are not in salable condition.  We ask that all items for pick up are easily accessible for our drivers, either in a garage or front of the house.  We cannot accept furniture that has been stored in unfinished basements. 

After items are reviewed by our designers, we will arrange a pick-up – either by SFAH staff or a moving company we work with throughout the year.   Because of rising costs, the Home may not be able to pick-up items in New York City without some financial assistance from our donors.  Please speak to Pasty to discuss options.

We do not accept:

  • Electronics and Home Appliances

  • Mattresses/Sofa Beds

  • Bed Linens and Towels

  • Toys, Books, Record Albums, CDS

  • Infants and children's items including cribs

As a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, you will be provided with a receipt of your donated items for your taxes.  We do not provide values for your donations.

The total value of your donation is tax deductible within the limits of the law. The Internal Revenue Code permits taxpayers that itemize their deductions to deduct the fair market value of contributed merchandise for income tax purposes.  It is the obligation of donor to determine the actual value of articles contributed.  If you believe the value of your contribution is substantial, you should have the merchandise comprising your contribution evaluated by a qualified appraiser and consult a tax advisor. 


The Southampton Fresh Air Home cannot sign any IRS tax documents attesting to the value of your donation without a qualified appraisal. IRS tax forms and accompanying appraisals must be submitted to the Home for signature prior to the date of the sale following your donation — this year, June 6, 2020. 


SFAH schedules furniture pick-ups done by our in-house staff on Tuesday's and Friday's.  If your donation is larger, or in New York City, we may engage B&N Moving who provide pick-ups five days a week according to their schedule and availability.  Pick-ups are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis, and are typically booked two to three weeks in advance.  Day of pick-ups are unfortunately not possible.

We accept items to be dropped-off by appointment only, also on Tuesday's and Friday's.  It is important that we are able to accommodate each donor with adequate assistance during your drop off. Therefore, we kindly request ample notice of what items we should expect so that we are properly staffed to assist you.
