Garage Sale 2015 Was a Huge Success !!!!

Garage Sale 2015 was a Huge Success !!!

The weather was picture perfect. Everyone set up their tables and displayed their wares bright and early and then the people came.

There were quite a few sellers that were donating the money they made at the sale to different charities and organizations.

  • Ride to Conquer Cancer
  • Toonies for Tummies
  • The Amadeus Choir
  • Arise Shelter for abused women
  • Wellspring

The Arise Shelter for abused women

Ride to Conquer Cancer

Yasmin Burt is a very special woman ! She has a bake sale every year and donates the proceeds to Wellspring, A Lifeline to Cancer Support. People come from far and wide to buy her baked goods and things sell quickly. This year, Yasmin raised a whooping $733 !!!! Way to go Yasmin !!

There are also some wonderful people that volunteered their time to help with the sale this year.

Joe from Warland collects all the signs and banners after

Less Than 24 Hours to go !!!!

14 Hours until BLAST OFF !!!!

The banners are up. The lawn signs are up. The garage sale packages are delivered. Just have to put up a few more banners tonight and then all the directional signs in the morning and we are ready to roll.

It does not look very friendly out there right now but the skies are relieving themselves tonight so that they are clear and blue tomorrow. ZERO % chance of precipitation tomorrow !!!! That is the best forecast ever. Not too hot with a slight breeze. Perfection !!!!

Please remember your safety rules tomorrow

Lather up with lots of sun screen and wear a hat 

Call, email or text with any concerns.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Garage Sale Day !!!!!!!!
