Town wide yard sale May 14
It’s nice to have options. And the annual Granville town-wide yard sale provides at least two – buy or sell.
Save the date, May 14, and plan to find a bargain somewhere – with the entire town to search.
Or are you looking to clear out your basement and make a little space to actually get that car in the garage? Are you looking for something to fill that empty space in the living room?
Either way the town-wide yard sale represents the perfect opportunity to shake hands with free market capitalism and sell, sell, sell or buy, buy, buy.
Sponsored by the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Granville Rotary Club, the event will have something for everyone.
Townspeople who choose to can come into the village and set up in Veterans Park without cost, a.k.a free. This central location is driven by many times during the day and is close to everything.
Whether you’re buying or selling Granville will be the place for bargains. The rain date for the town wide is Sunday May 15.
Denise Davies of the chamber said the map will return again this year. Signing up for the map is free, but the deadline for being included is Friday, May 6. Sellers may pick up copies of the map to pass out at their yard sales throughout the town; copies will be available the day before the sale, Friday, May 13.
The map is being coordinated by the chamber of commerce; contact Harry at 802-645-0393 for a space on it. Davies said the map will be printed on two sides of paper and will include a map of village streets and one showing the town streets.
The map will be available at the chamber building at the corner of Main and Church streets.
Davies said several places in the village will have food from the Granville Engine and Hose Co. No. 1’s famous chicken barbecue. Sales will start at noon and include a take-out container with half a bird, beans, coleslaw and a biscuit.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it can be found at the Peniel Presbyterian Church on Quaker Street on sale day, followed by lunch. The breakfast includes pancakes, eggs, toast, bacon and sausage and will be served from 7 to 10 a.m. when the cooks will switch over to lunch.
The lunch menu includes drinks and chips for sale along with hot dogs, hamburgers or sausage, peppers and onions.
Commercial vendors can rent space on the Granville High School lawn right alongside of Quaker Street by contacting the Granville Rotary Club’s Bob Jones at 642-1108. The Granville Baptist Church on Quaker Street will have restrooms open to the public as will the chamber building on Main Street.
Anyone with questions can contact the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce at 642-2815.
