For its 17th annual garage sale, the City of Georgetown Animal Shelter is doing things a little differently – hosting spots for other people to sell their treasures.
“Instead of taking donated items and selling them ourselves in the garage sale, we will be offering spots to people who want to sell their own items,” shelter manager Jackie Carey says. “We were struggling to find a place to store donated goods for the two months leading up to the garage sale, so we had to come up with an alternate plan.”
The shelter is selling up to 57 vendor spaces of varying size and location.
- 8’ x 8’, indoors, $50
- 8’ x 5’, indoors, $35
- 18’ x 6’ spot, outdoors shaded, $35
- 18’ x 6’ spot, outdoors unshaded, $25
There will be 46 indoor spots, most of them 8’ x 8’, and 11 outdoor spots. The outdoor spaces will be on the enclosed patio. Eight-foot tables may be rented for $10. Vendors will set up their spots on Thursday, September 22, the day preceding the two-day garage sale.
“I think it will be attractive to people to have a guaranteed spot in a secure, air-conditioned location, and benefit from the name recognition of the shelter’s garage sale,” Carey says.
The garage sale, a benefit organized by the Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter, will be held Friday and Saturday, September 23 and 24, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the Community Center in San Gabriel Park. All proceeds benefit animals at the Georgetown Animal Shelter.
