Labor Day Means Yard Sale

The Whitehall Town-Wide Yard Sale will be held on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4 through Sept. 6, with more than 50 yard sales.

The yard sale is put on through the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce, and Carol Matheny, who helped organize the event, said the event is seen as a way to get more people coming through the town and involved in the weekend.
“You have 5,000 people that are coming through the local area that are not usually coming through here,” said Matheny. “This is a great chance for people to stop in Whitehall and see what we have to offer.”
Matheny said there will be plenty of places throughout the town for people to find the perfect trinket or treasure, with a large variety of yard sales taking place both in the village and throughout the town.
A map of the town, complete with a listing of local yard sales, will be distributed by the chamber at Skenesborough Gardens, Putorti’s, Stewart’s and Cumberland Farms.
Along with yard sales, there will also be a couple of places to stop and get a snack or some lunch as those looking for a good deal explore the town.
“I know that Stewart’s usually has hot dogs throughout the weekend,” said Matheny. “There are also other groups that will do food booths or offer refreshments.”
For more information on the annual Whitehall Town-Wide Yard Sale on Saturday, Sept. 4, Sunday, Sept. 5, and Labor Day, Sept. 6; or to get your yard sale placed on the community map, call Matheny at 499-1235, Bertlen Turner at 499-1182 or email chamber President Scott Ray at
