Community Yard Sale November 3, 2012

Are you thinking about a yard sale, but don’t want to deal with people tromping around your home, cars parked all over the street and lawns, and perhaps neighbors complaining? Rent a space at Waste Not Want Not’s Community Yard Sale to hold your sale in a high visibility location with easy parking.

Waste Not Want Not is seeking participants for a Community Yard Sale to be held at Town Hall Park in Orange Park on November 3, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you would like to hold your own yard sale as part of a multi-family sale, this is your chance! Waste Not Want Not will be advertising this event to the community and expects a large number of shoppers. Town Hall Park is located at the corner of Kingsley Ave and Rt.17/Park Ave and restrooms will be available at Town Hall.

All are welcome to rent a 15’ x 15’ space to sell household goods (no sales of food or drinks) for a $20 rental fee per space. If requested in advance, electricity can be made available for an additional $5. (Waste Not will provide at no charge a centrally located “Testing Area” where potential purchasers can plug in electronic items to test them before purchasing.) Vendors may begin setting up no earlier than 7 a.m. and must leave their space free of any items and litter by 3 p.m. Vendors provide any tables, tents, chairs, or extension cords needed. To reserve a space, please print out and complete this Seller Agreement. Return the form with your check made out to Waste Not Want Not, PO Box 119, Orange Park, FL 32067.

This event is a fundraiser for Waste Not Want Not, at which we will be selling new and used items and food and drinks for shoppers to enjoy while they browse. Waste Not will also be holding a bake sale and Explorer Crew 987 will be creating fingerprint records of children in exchange for a donation to Waste Not. Local charities including Clothes Closet, Foundation of the Personal Empowerment Center, Miller Street Renewal, and Clay Literacy Coalition will be on hand at the close of the day to receive any unsold items you do not wish to take home. These charities do not resell items, but will put your donations directly into the hands of someone who will use them gratefully.

There will be no refunds for any reason. In case of an extremely inclement forecast, Waste Not reserves the right to reschedule the event by notifying you no later than Thursday, November 1, at the email address you provide on the Seller Agreement. The rain date is November 10, 2012, same time, same place.
