My Final Plug for the Yard Sale!
This will be my final chance to promote the neighborhood yard sale here in Dayton, Ohio. We have 65 people signed up for it and one church sale that was scheduled way before we ever thought of a community yard sale event! So, if you ever needed an excuse to drive a couple of hours to Dayton, this is it. Who knows what you will find?
The truth is, we NEVER imagined that this event would be this big. We also anticipate a whole bunch of people who didn't contribute their fee to be on the map having yard or garage sales in the neighborhood making this event even bigger than advertised. Family Video, located at 1910 Wayne Ave is hosting our information booth where we will be handing out maps showing all the locations. They are having a sidewalk sale to show their solidarity. HERE is the map if you don't want to stop at the information booth and be tempted to buy DVDs or videos.
Plans are already being discussed for next years extravaganza. We are planning to invite 2 or 3 adjacent neighborhoods to participate in a two day event at the same time as ours so that there will be 150 - 200 locations within a 1 mile area. Now THAT is what I call a community yard sale!
Once I recover from my role in organizing this event I can tell you about the "Great IKEA Expedition of 2006" that took place earlier this week....
