Features 100+ Tables, 1,000's of Items
The 10th Annual St. Mary’s Gigantic Indoor Yard Sale is coming up on Sept. 9th, and volunteers were still busy pricing and stocking items for the sale this past weekend. With over 100 tables full of donated items, there has to be something for everyone.
The event has become a community favorite and one that draws shoppers and visitors from throughout the valley. The yard sale will run from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. There will be over 100 volunteers staffing the sale, restocking tables, running the checkout stations and assisting shoppers, and Stevens High School students will be on hand to help carry items out to shoppers' cars. Doughnuts from Stone Arch Bakery will be available in the morning, and lunch items will also be available as the sale goes on.
Organizer Norma Limoges said that the annual yard sale has grown each year. “The first year we collected about $2,400 from the sale. Last year we raised over $11,000 for the parish.”
Along with the yard sale being a major fundraiser for St. Mary’s parish, Limoges said that “The yard sale also benefits the community through our Community Outreach Program and brings a great bunch of people together each year to help put the yard sale on.”
Limoges urged everyone to stop on by on the 9th and see what they have to offer with the thousands of items up for sale. She also wanted to thank all the folks who donated items to the sale and all the volunteers who work to make the annual yard sale a “gigantic” fun event!
