Fall Yard Sale

Post date: Sep 7, 2014 9:51:04 PM

The neighborhood Fall Yard Sale was held September 13th 2014. Arla Chevess was the event coordinator and hand-delivered a flier to every home in our subdivision. She also obtained the Yard Sale Group Permit from the Swansea Government Center, placed the advertisement in the Belleville News Democrat, announced the event on Craig's List and various Facebook pages, and set out signs at the entrances and within the subdivision to direct traffic to the residents participating in the sale. This opportunity allowed residents to get together to hold a neighborhood yard sale event, enabling shoppers to visit several homes in one sweep through the subdivision. Eight residents participated in the events for a fee of $5 each to defray the cost of placing an advertisement in the Belleville News Democrat. Arla reported the sales ranged from $250 to $900 among the residents who participated. A big THANK YOU goes out to Arla!
