Village yard sale registrations due by July 30

The Hanover Community Chamber of Commerce is again sponsoring a village wide yard sale. This year’s date is Saturday, Aug. 2, for any resident in the 14136 zip code area. The regular sales will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. Reduced prices will be offered during the “Bunches of Bargains” and will take place from 3:01 until 5 p.m. Those homes participating in the “Bunches of Bargains” will be designated on the yard sale maps and will offer reduced prices.

Registration forms are available now. Registration is $10. Participants holding yard sales are asked to sign up in person at Silver Creek Optical, 41 Main St. Registering in person will allow for proper placement of each home on the yard sale map.

The registration deadline is Wednesday, July 30. Participants are asked to register early. The maps will be printed on August 1.

All registration fees are used for printing of the map and advertising. Advertising will be placed in the OBSERVER, the NY-PA Collector as well as the Gowanda, Angola, Lakeshore, Fredonia and Jamestown Pennysavers. In addition, 500 posters and 3,000 palm cards will be placed at auctions, flea markets, antique stores and other village wide yard sales. Net proceeds will be used for community enhancement and a scholarship for one Silver Creek and one Forestville graduate college bound business student.

Those holding yard sales within the village of Silver Creek are required to have a permit. The Chamber of Commerce has a blanket permit for August 2, covering any village resident registering with the Chamber. Participants will receive a “grape” poster with their map number to be displayed in a prominent location the day of the sale.

Terrific bargains await the discriminating shopper at numerous sales in and outside the village. The Chamber strongly encourages shoppers to purchase the maps to locate these many, many sales. Yard sale maps will be available for a nominal fee on Saturday, Aug. 2 at 9 a.m. sharp at the park gazebo or 29 Oak St. All those who purchase maps will be entered to win a $25 Chamber gift certificate. The lucky winner will be drawn at 5 p.m. the day of the sale.
