5th Annual Belington City Wide Yard Sale
The Belington Revitalization Committee and ON TRAC Promotion Team are currently organizing the 5th Annual Belington Community-Wide Yard-Sale for June 7, 2014.
As always, you can have a yard-sale at your home or rent a space downtown. If you would like to set-up your yard-sale at your home, you can have your location listed in the event flyer free of charge by filling out a form at one of the following locations: Freedom Bank, Belington City Hall, Laurel Mountain Inn, or by going online at www.belington.net.
Spaces are also available to rent downtown in the Freedom Bank parking lot and must be paid for in advance. The cost to rent one space is $10.00 or you can rent three spaces for $25.00. If you wish to rent a space, please contact Terri Kittle at 304-823-1792 for further information.
All home yard sale registrations must be submitted no later than June 4, 2014 to be listed on the flyer. Your address and directions to your yard-sale will be published in a flyer that will be available at the locations listed above on the day of the event and at www.belington.net.
A yard-sale is the ultimate example of “one man’s trash” becoming “another man’s treasure” and a great example of reusing and recycling.
For the shoppers, yard-sales offer the chance to find a bargain or some special item that they did not even know they were looking for. Shoppers have a chance to enjoy the sunshine and smell the flowers. The weather is nice and people are eager to get out of their houses and enjoy the company of others. Yard-sales provide a social opportunity as well as an economic one.
For the sellers, yard-sales allow them to let go of underused or unused items that they may otherwise hold onto. Sellers clear their homes and storage spaces of clutter and make some extra spending money in the process.
Either way you look at it, yard-sales are an important part of our social network.
Please be sure to come and help support the local economy by participating as either a buyer or a seller.
