Yard Sales Aplenty This Saturday

The time honored tradition of rummaging through other people's stuff. I don't know why it's so appealing, but damn, it's fun. My mother-in-law is an avid early birder, and got my bride and I started in on it when we bought our first house. We are pretty set on dishware and knick-knacks right now, but there will be plenty of chances to fill your own garage's with discarded treasures this weekend.
  • The Women's Recovery Center at 375 Weaver Rd. in Florence, KY is having a huge yard sale this Saturday, August 6th from 8-2. They are a non-profit organization, so all the earnings will be used for health visits at the facility.
The visits cost $30 each and many of the women don't have the means to be able to pay for these on an ongoing basis.

"The donations will be used as an instrument to affect change in the life of recovering women and provide ongoing resources to the women who need medical attention or doctor's appointments."

  • The Highlands Middle School is also having a yard sale this Saturday, from 8-12 at the Middle School.

All the proceeds will go to the 8th grade trip to Washington DC. One of our readers, Jacqui Killen posted the following on our Facebook page here:

Hello. I was hoping you could remind all your followers that this Saturday, August 6, is the 8th Grade Garage Sale at Highlands Middle School from 8 a.m. to noon. All proceeds benefit the class trip to Washington D.C. This year's sale is going to be HUGE. All the booths in the garage will be full of great items and great deals. Thanks.

  • And of course, the world's longest yard sale has been going on this week along route 127. You've no doubt seen this features on 5, 9 and 12 local news broadcasts this week.

Here's the official website here.

Have a great weekend.

PS: Dibs on any Reds bobbleheads you guys come across. I'm almost done building my mancave.
PPS: Van Damme it's Friday!


  1. Funny you mention -- we have two Barry Larkin bobble heads at our booth at the HMS Garage sale. We're in parking space 63. Stop by!

  2. I looked for you guys. Must have been sold already. Hope it was a success!
