Posts Tagged ‘Town-wide Yard Sale’

 

We just received our updated TWYS fliers, skillfully prepared by Andrew Gioulis of KFR Comunications.   Thank you Andrew.  These fliers would make a nice wall decoration for your OG house.  We’ll let you know when they are available.

Whether you are a participant or a shopper, please mark your calendars.

The more sellers and buyers= a more successful event.  We would like to break the shore record.

If you Google “Which Jersey Shore towns have the most successful town-wide yard sale,” Ocean Grove is listed #1.  In an APP article last year, OG ‘s TWYS was listed with Asbury Park’s, but we had more participants.

Other travel sites picked us up including Delaware On-Line, Event Crazy.com, NJ.com, and others, but unfortunately  the OGCMA refused outright  to help our citizens promote this event,  confirming the problem between the populace and the entrenched CMA.  And the Chamber of Commerce said that our town-wide sale would be bad for their businesses, so they wouldn’t help.

We advertise each year in the Coaster, Craig’s List, and the APP.  We welcome any volunteers who have ideas about marketing.  No one makes any money on this event except  the sellers.

If you think you’ve heard this song before, you are correct, but predictable repeats of traditions can be reassuring and beneficial.

HARRY JAMES with a message of this sort.   It’s from Woody’s great movie Hannah and her Sisters:
