Join our Benefit Event for Copake Falls Day

The Great 2009 Copake Falls
Hamlet-Wide Yard Sale
Saturday, May 23rd
8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Rain or Shine!


You host the Yard Sale. We’ll take care of the advertising and publicity!


Have you thought of having a yard sale but wondered whether enough people might come to make it worth your while? Then you need to participate in the Great 2009 Copake Falls Hamlet-Wide Yard Sale.

Sponsored by the Copake Falls Day Planning Committee, the Hamlet-Wide Yard Sale will be advertised in multiple media outlets. We will include your address on a widely distributed map of the Hamlet and we’ll provide you with a big sign and balloons to let everybody know that you are an official participant in the Hamlet-Wide Yard Sale. We’ll also provide you with some tips on how to make your sale successful.

But wait! There’s more! If you don’t live in Copake Falls but want to participate you can set up your table at the Copake Ironworks Schoolhouse on Rte 22 just opposite St. Bridget’s Church and Peck & Peck Funeral Home. Plenty of parking, shade and passers-by!

To get started, print out the registration form below and send it along with your check for $20.00 to Copake Falls Day Committee, PO Box 25, Copake Falls, NY 12517. Registration must be received by May 19th or email us.
