Mark your calendar for Aug. 13, 2010 for the Annual Steilacoom Town Wide Garage Sale. The sale will be held that day between 9 a.m. -4 p.m.
Dig out those treasures hidden away in your attics, basements, closets, and garages. Rent a space on the Tennis Court for $15. (Sign up early since the court fills up fast) If you have too many items to bring to the Tennis Court, register with the Chamber of Commerce for only $10 and hold the sale at your residence within the town. Your address will be included on a map that will be distributed to bargain seekers on Sale Day.
You also can sign up online at www.steilacoom.org or pick up an application after July 1 at:
- The Steilacoom Marine & Spirits at 1310 Commercial St,
- Key Bank at 1615 Lafayette St.
- Chambers Bay Realty 1603 Lafayette St
Applications will be accepted until Wed., Aug. 10.
This is a fundraiser for scholarships for students in our area, and we encourage everyone to sign up. We distribute garage sale signs (two per house) so people know that you are participating. We also do all the advertising, so please help make this event a success by signing up.
For more information, please email Patti Young at www.steilacoom.org. (Garage Sale in the Subject line, please) Space is limited at the tennis courts so reserve your space today.
A Goodwill Truck will be parked at the Steilacoom Community Center from 830am to 500pm to collect items that you did not sell, but would like to donate.
