This Blogfinger reader posted one of the Town Wide Yard Sale fliers on her porch under plastic.  You can help promote the event by doing the same.  Stop at 113 Mt. Hermon Way  (at Delaware) and pick up a flier.  For a town wide yard sale to gain a reputation in the area, you need a significant number of participants.  Last year we had 62.  This year, so far, it is 30.

Please consider participating, even if you only stay open for half the day—we can note exceptions on our list.  It’s a good way to combine spring cleaning with a chance to make a few bucks and have a few yucks.

To participate in this May 9 event, contact us by email Blogfinger@verizon.net   or drop a note in our mailbox 113 Mt. Hermon Way.

For those who are signed up, consider getting some balloons.  Also try to sell clothing.  Our neighbor sold out last year, but the prices have to be low.  Tell us your sizes. We won’t use your names. Ocean Grove used to be famous for finding antiques at its yard sales.  Consider selling some of yours.

This year will be the 4th Annual Town-wide Yard Sale on Saturday, May 9, which is the Mother’s Day weekend. Each year it has grown bigger and better. The 2014 version had about 90 participants, but ideally, an event like this would be really festive if many more people all over town participated. We hope that 2015 will bring more sellers which will, in turn, bring more visitors to town.

Blogfinger has been sponsoring the event without any significant help.  We tried some local organizations without success.

So, I think we need an official Town-wide Yard Sale committee to pursue this event with me.   I’m hoping for about 6 people who are interested in engaging in a public service activity. The committee would work with me in planning, advertising, distributing fliers, and observing the event all over town. It shouldn’t take a lot of time. We are interested in new ideas as part of the planning process. Meetings will be held in the Blogfinger compound.

If you are interested, please contact me at Blogfinger@verizon.net.


Thank you ladies and germs,
