So, gather your items, pre-clean and price them. It saves a lot of time during set-up if everything is clean and priced. Then all we have to do it set it out.
We need to commit to the time needed to compile, prepare, conduct, and shutdown another sale if we expect to meet or beat last years record setting amount. We also need donations. So if you know family, friends, or co-workers who are looking to donate items we can use as many items as possible. Hot items include sporting goods, tools, furniture, and working electronics.
Craig Myers has stepped up and volunteered the MY-COMM location in Springfield as the new site for this year’s detachment yard sale.
