The 32nd Annual Decorators-Designers-Dealers (D-D-D) Sale and Auction Benefit Gala will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2024. Festivities begin at 4pm for sponsors and benefactors and 5pm for general admission.
As always, the fabulous furniture sale will feature designer furniture and rare antiques, gently used and new home furnishings, decorative accessories, and much more. There is literally nothing anywhere like our Decorators-Designers-Dealers event!
The auctions will offer items from top names in fashion, jewelry, travel, fine dining, entertainment, sports, health and beauty, plus priceless one-of-a-kind items, including exotic vacations at private resorts, golf outings, and more. The wine auction will feature a selection of wines that rival the best of any private collection.
Thank you for considering donating furniture to the Southampton Fresh Air Home. 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 get started, please e-mail photos of your items to email@example.com and indicate where the items are located and what the time frame for pick-up is (or if you will be dropping off at SFAH).
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.
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. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept furniture that has been stored in unfinished basements.
Your donation to the furniture sale and/or auction will ensure that no child is denied an opportunity to attend camp because of a family's inability to pay. We thank you for your generosity! 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 1, 2024.
We can use:
Furniture in excellent condition
Dishes, glasses, china and housewares (properly packed in boxes please)
Lamps, lighting (working only)
Unique or unusual items
Clean rugs (up to 9' x 12' )
FURNITURE PICK-UPS AND DROP-OFFS
SFAH schedules furniture pick-ups done by our in-house staff on one or two mornings each week. 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 during normal business hours Monday through Friday. 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.
Unfortunately, we do not accept:
Electronics and home appliances, mattresses/sofa beds, bed linens and towels, toys (except antique, unique items), books, record albums, CDs, infants and children's items including cribs, oversized armoires and dining tables and composite furniture
Your furniture may be declined during pick up for the following reasons:
Worn/damaged/scratched/broken/stained or sun faded furniture or upholstery
Furniture with missing parts
Lack of accessibility for our mover
