The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is holding its semi-annual auction this Saturday, and it's a win-win for everyone. Formerly known as the Map Furniture Bank, the group was founded by Jeff Jay more than 10 years ago with the mission of providing free furniture for families in need. Thanks to ongoing efforts from local individuals, colleges, hotels and furniture stores, the Furniture Bank has amassed an excess of large estate and heirloom pieces - and the pickings are great. Doors open at 9 a.m. at the warehouse location at 4458 Alum Creek Dr., and the auction starts at 10. Expect to bid on a wide assortment of leather sofas, lounge seating and dining sets.
