It’s a Secondhand Safari!
Please join us in spreading the word about Thurston County Fair’s 2nd Annual Community Garage Sale and Reuse Fair.
Saturday, May 1st, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
Thurston County Fairgrounds
“Last years event was a huge success with over 100 vendors and over 2,500 visitors! Thats a lot of customers to buy your re-useable treasures! Event includes garage sale booths, educational booths, free book and magazine exchange table, music, food, and more! This is a great opportunity to sell, trade, and barter with others in your community. Dont forget to bring your books and magazines for the free exchange table. There will be $2 early-bird admission between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and $1 admission after 9:00.
Sign up now to have a garage sale booth 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.
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. Visitors can also bring reusable items to donate. Items accepted for donation at Goodwills discretion.
If you would like to have an educational booth, display, or be part of the presentations happening throughout the day sign up now! All community groups, non-profits, businesses, agencies and individuals working on sustainability issues are welcomed.
Reuse is an important way to prevent still usable items from ending up in our landfills and save money on disposal costs. Reuse also has other far reaching environmental and community benefits. 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. In addition, this event is designed to be a nearly zero waste event, with compostable and recyclable waste being collected at waste stations staffed by Master Recycler volunteers. Last year there was only one small bag of trash generated by visitors for the entire event!” quoting Thurston County.
