Last chance before winter to clear the house, the garage, the attic, the outbuildings, and make some money, too! Poultney’s Fall Town Wide Yard Sale is on the calendar for Saturday, October 8th, 2022, from 9 AM to 4 PM. Think of it: bright sunshine, cool breezes, people visiting and catching up. You’ll enjoy seeing people you may not have seen over the summer.
But there’s a lot to do before that day. Sign-ups for space on Main Street are going on now, but some were already reserved last spring. It’s still just $25.00 for a 15-foot space (so you don’t have to adjust for inflation), and you can rent multiple spaces. Call the Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce at 802-287-2010, email us at email@example.com, or download the form at http://PoultneyAreaChamber.com , and mail the completed form and your check to PACC, PO Box 151, Poultney, VT 05764.
Want to be in a special spot? Call the Chamber and pick it out. It’s first-come, first-served on the available space, so you want to sign up now.
Then gather your merchandise together and figure out how to display it. New or used items, antiques and collectibles, cookware and glassware, antique framed photos and paintings, furniture and vintage jewelry and great-grandma’s cast-iron skillet, books and CDs, clothing and personal care, old windows and doors, toys of all ages. All have been part of the past Town Wide Yard Sale in the past. So the big question is: what will there be this year?
The Poultney Town Wide Yard Sales were originally conceived as a way for local residents to sell their used items and maybe make a few dollars. But they’ve grown and changed over the years, much as Poultney is changing now. Residents are encouraged to rent space if they wish, or to hold their own yard sales at home. The more, the merrier, and the bigger the better.
Don’t forget the food! Food vendors will be scattered up and down Main Street. The Methodist Church expects to hold their own yard sale, and will also provide food at breakfast and lunch. You can also sample Poultney’s restaurants and take-out locations with a variety of food to suite any taste.
So look ahead to the long weekend, and sign up now for the Poultney Town Wide Yard Sale, Saturday, October 8th, 2022. Just $25.00 for a 15-foot space, and you can rent multiple spaces. Call the Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce at 802-287-2010, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then just mail the application and your check to PACC, PO Box 151, Poultney, VT 05764. We look forward to seeing you!
