There will be a large community Rummage Sale this Saturday, February 20th to help save the Gloo Factory in the historic warehouse district. The Sale will be held at The Art Gallery at 1122 N. Stone Avenue. (Near Stone and Speedway Blvd.) Hours: 8am-2pm
The Gloo Factory (named for the “gloo” that keeps community together) began almost twenty years ago with the acquisition of two offset printing presses, and has evolved into a significant community resource. It now offers offset printing, screen-printing, graphic arts services, and technical assistance and education. The Gloo Factory produces books, newsletters, bumper stickers, signs and banners, t-shirts and much more, almost exclusively for non-profit groups and progressive causes.
As a community-oriented facility, The Gloo Factory’s 4000-square-foot rented warehouse has become a center of activity for grassroots groups. In addition to providing printing and related services, The Gloo Factory provides workshops, classes, and other training to give people the knowledge (and encouragement) they need to produce their own printed materials.
