Main Street News: April 3rd

With spring’s arrival and longer daylight hours, we are itching to be outside more and more. We also start thinking of all those activities we have been unable to enjoy over the long winter months.  Grilling outside, park visits with kids, outdoor ball games, and rummage sales! 

The Spring Area Wide Rummage sales are scheduled for May 5 & 6.  This is a great time for a number of people:  those who have treasures they no longer need and those who are looking for treasure.  It is spring cleaning time -a time to go through those closets, basement, attic and garage. If you’re like me, when I no longer have a use for something, I just can’t throw it away.  I always figure it might be of use to someone.  I try to find a home for it and pass it along or donate it.  For some people having a garage sale is a prime opportunity to move those things right out of the house and make a little money at the same time.  So get busy and organized.  Do that garage & basement cleaning. Sort through those boxes, clean out the kid’s toy box and put together a sale.

The annual City Wide Clean Up dates are scheduled for April 19-21.  This can help with those items you may find in your Spring Cleaning process that aren’t fit for donation or sale. Curbside pickup will be available on certain days in your neighborhoods.  Watch for more information in the Record Review. 

The Annual Rummage Sale days have become a time for some friends and family to join forces and unload some of their ‘stuff’ while hosting a sale.  Contact the Record Review for your ad information.  Deadline is April 26 so don’t wait.  They will print your ad in the paper and the Main Street program will publish it in brochures for shoppers to utilize.  Those brochures will be available at local businesses prior to the sales.  Both publications will have a map of Barnesville featuring your sale site!  Ads are being sold to businesses for print in the flyer and many are running specials those days.  Don’t forget to check them out too.

This event brings carloads of people to our community.  This not only helps those who host a sale, but local businesses as well.  Visitors will need lunch, gas, treats, and will stop at local businesses too.  So get ready Barnesville area…Rummage Sales are coming May 5 & 6.
