After a bitterly long and cold winter, it is time to start spring cleaning. What better way to clean the house, garage, basement, or attic than to convert some of that clutter into cash? To kick off the yard sale season right and bring the community together, Lincoln County Publishing Co. is teaming up with the Central Lincoln County YMCA to host the Lincoln County Yard Sale, a huge indoor yard sale, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. This event will take place in the CLC YMCA gym and admission is free.
The gym will be host to as many as 100 tables of yard sale gems. The 8-foot tables will be sold for $20 each to individuals who wish to sell their household items. Floor space per table will be roughly 8 feet by 8 feet. Individuals may purchase up to three tables, which will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Businesses are exempt from purchasing tables. There will be WiFi internet service available for those who wish to accept payments through credit cards using their equipment and accounts. Sellers are encouraged to bring petty cash for use as change as there will not be change on-site.
There will be food to purchase on-site, and tours of the recently completed YMCA facility updates will be offered throughout the day.
The CLC YMCA will be open for regular business during this event. “We are happy to partner with LCPC on this first annual yard sale for the entire community held within our new CLC YMCA Community Center,” CLC YMCA CEO Meagan Hamblett said. “It’s an opportunity for people to do their spring cleaning while others find treasures galore.”
Those interested in purchasing a table can contact Lincoln County Publishing Co. at 563-3171 or email@example.com. Up to three items can be highlighted that will be for sale during this event, which will be used in promotional advertisements leading up to the event. Payment for table reservations must be received within seven days to ensure the spot is held.
Setup for sellers will begin at 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 5. Arrangements can be made to set up items on Friday evening, if desired. No early bird buyers, please.
Prohibited sale items include animals, firearms or ammunition, alcohol-/drug-related items, food, or smoking materials. This event is carry-in/carry-out; all unsold items, including trash, must be removed by 6 p.m. on May 5. Dumpsters will not be available for trashing unsold items.
