Rain or Shine - To Benefit Copake Falls Day
At homes throughout Copake Falls and at the Copake Ironworks Schoolhouse on Route 22 and Bain Road.
Monday, May 10, 2010
Calling all Copake Falls residents with too much "stuff." It's time to register to participate in the 2nd Annual Copake Falls Village Wide Yard Sale, to be held on Saturday, May 29th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.! If you have been meaning to clean out that garage, attic or basement, here's a great opportunity to do it with the least possible effort. Copake Falls homeowners pay a $20 registration fee to have their yard sale widely advertised and listed on a map distributed to interested buyers. Signs and balloons will also be provided to homeowners so that shoppers can easily identify participating households. We'll also give you a packet of helpful tips.
Sellers who do not wish to sell from home can set up shop at the Copake Ironworks School House, centrally located on Route 22 in Copake Falls, for a $25 registration fee (one table provided; additional tables available for $15 each). Donations of yard-sale appropriate goods will also be gratefully accepted by the organizers of the sale which will benefit Copake Falls Day.
Last year's Copake Falls Village Wide Yard Sale drew huge crowds throughout Copake Falls and at the Ironworks Schoolhouse on Route 22. We expect a similar turnout this year. Saturday, May 29th kicks off the yard sale season -- in addition to the Copake Falls sale, numerous other big sales will take place in the area that weekend. Shoppers and sellers alike will really have a chance to clean-up (literally and figuratively!) during this big yard sale weekend!
For registration forms and information on the sale, visit http://www.copakefalls.org/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 518-966-2233.
See you there!
