Join the fun at Thurston County Fairs second annual Community Garage Sale and Reuse Fair! This community event is being held on Saturday, May 1st from 8:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m at the Thurston County Fairgrounds. The event includes garage sale booths, educational booths, free book and magazine exchange, recycled art, food, music, and more! This is a great opportunity to sell, trade, and barter with others in your community. There will be $2 early-bird admission between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and $1 admission after 9:00.

Sign up now and get ready to clear out your clutter. Coordinate with your friends, make it a family event, or use the opportunity to raise money for a charity. Booth space is $25 for an outdoor booth and $40 for a covered booth. Set up will be the Friday before from noon until 10:00 p.m. The doors will be locked after set up Friday evening and security will be on-site until Saturday morning. Goodwill will have a trailer on-site and will be accepting donations throughout the day. This is a great opportunity to donate your leftovers at the end of the day. Items are accepted for donation at Goodwills discretion. Dont forget to bring your books and magazines for the free exchange table!

So come and take advantage of this great opportunity to pass on treasures to others, and benefit from the advertising and exposure you wouldnt otherwise get with a garage sale at home! Last years event drew in a crowd of over 3,000 people and were expecting even more this year.

To reserve your space or for more information please call 786-5453 or visit www.co.thurston.wa.us/fair. If you would like to have an educational booth sign up now! All community groups, non-profits, businesses, agencies and individuals working on sustainability issues are welcomed.
