Collect vinyl, CDs and other goodies at Daddy Kool’s 50 Cent Sidewalk Sale and more shopping deals

GIVE BACK: ART FOR TEACHERS
Teachers, especially art teachers, notoriously buy their own supplies, so why not help out local teachers and donate some art supplies? The supplies will go to the Nomad Art Bus, a wonderful organization in the form of a colorful bus that travels around providing art experiences, including to those for whom art isn't accessible. These supplies will be used for Nomad's Justice Studio program, which will bring art classes to detained youth in the Pinellas Regional Juvenile Detention Center. Donations are being accepted throughout the month at the [email protected] in downtown St. Pete, but a fun time to go is Saturday, when there's an art show curated by Jenipher Chandley, Mark Stevens and Von Zombo, with raffles and an auction. 8 p.m.-2 a.m. at 548 Central Ave. Free. nomadartbus.org.

VINYL FEVER: 50 CENT SIDEWALK SALE
Saturday is a great time to add to your record collection at Daddy Kool Records' 50 Cent Sidewalk Sale, when vinyl, CDs, posters, stickers and "goodies from the archive" will all be a mere 50 cents. While the rapper 50 Cent won't be there for the occasion, DJ Kalani will be spinning all the jams, which is better, really. It happens from noon-6 p.m. at 666 Central Ave., St. Petersburg.

DESIGN TIME: CHISELERS' WAREHOUSE SALE
The Chiselers are a dedicated support group to the restoration and upkeep of Plant Hall at the University of Tampa. They have a yearly market of donated furniture and home decor. I always say it's a really swanky garage sale. But also once a year, they have a warehouse sale, happening on Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to redesign their homes, interior designers or just pickers. The warehouse is located at 212 N Newport Ave., Tampa. Free.

SWAP IT OUT: BACK TO SCHOOL SWAP
Here's a thrifty way to get the kids their back to school outfits. The New Port Richey Library is holding a Back-to-School Swap Friday and Saturday. Swap out gently used clothing, shoes and accessories for babies, children and teens. Don't have anything to swap? No worries. You can shop the items priced by suggested donation. It happens from noon-4 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday. 5939 Main St., New Port Richey. (727) 853-1279.
