Deadline looming for citywide garage sale

The second annual “Trash To Treasures” garage sale event is slated for Saturday, June 16; and the deadline to sign up is next week.

The Clarendon Enterprise and A Fine Feathered Nest, Inc., have again teamed up to sponsor “Trash To Treasures” to coincide with Father’s Day weekend.

“This event exceeded our expectations last year, and we’re hoping it will be equally successful this year,” said publisher Roger Estlack. “People realize that it makes sense to have these garage sales on the same day to draw a bigger crowd.”

Residents who wish to participate in this year’s “Trash To Treasures” are asked to come by the Enterprise before 5 p.m. on Friday, June 8, to sign up for the promotion.

For just $20, each household will get 50-word advertisement in the Big-E Classifieds and the exclusive “Trash To Treasures” garage sale kit, which includes tips for holding a successful sale, price stickers, and two yard signs.

In addition, the Enterprise will print a city map the week of the event indicating the location of each sale and will promote the citywide garage sale in area newspapers and with local radio ads.

“Trash To Treasures” is intended to not only help residents earn more money at their garage and yard sales but also bring people from out of town to Clarendon to spend the day visiting our neighborhoods and patronizing our local merchants and restaurants.

Remember: The deadline for joining the “Trash To Treasures” promotion is Friday, June 8, at 5 p.m. For more information, call 874-2259 or come by the office at 105 S. Kearney.
