    Summer is quickly coming to an end. Instead of feeling wistful, we are planning a community-wide gathering! Join us as we host our first Community Yard Sale on Saturday, September 7 from 10am – 4pm.

    You know what they say: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” This is the inspiration behind our fun, family-oriented community event. Think of it as a giant garage sale – who knows what treasures you’ll find.

    Besides providing an opportunity to turn your unwanted stuff into cash, the event will feature food and beverage, entertainment, a DIY/Upcycling Station (inspired by our collections on Pinterest), games and other fun surprises. It’s also a great opportunity to meet more members of your community.

    HELPFUL TIPS

    The experts at Vintage Depot offer these tips to help you have a successful yard sale:

    • 1) Prepare early. Start rounding up your trash (er, treasure) several days in advance.
    • 2) Be an early riser – set up 2 hours before the sale.
    • 3) Invest in tables – people do not like to bend down.
    • 4) Group items logically – e.g., kitchenware, sporting equipment.
    • 5) Price items right – 1/3 or less of the original cost is a good starting point.
    • 6) Make your sale items attractive – wipe them off for a fresh, clean look.
    • 7) Selling for an organization? Set up signage, let people know how to reach you post-event.
    • 8) Have fun!

    Help us promote the sale by joining the event on Facebook and inviting your friends and family.
