Yard sales today in Silver Creek

Today, Silver Creek and the surrounding area will be full of shoppers looking for that special antique, collectible, appliance, back-to-school clothes, or that just “gotta have it” item. Yard sales begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m.

Participating homes will offer “Bunches of Bargains” taking place from 3:01 until 5 p.m. Those homes will be designated on the yard sale maps and will be offering reduced prices. The sales take place rain or shine.

The Chamber encourages shoppers to purchase the maps to locate these many, many sales.

Yard sale maps will be available for only $.50 on starting at 9 a.m. in the park or at 29 Oak Street. The sale of the maps assists the Chamber in advertising and other costs involved. Net proceeds will be used for community enhancement.

If the shoppers do not have a map, they cannot determine who is participating in the “Bunches of Bargains:, nor will they find the sales outside the village limits.

Sue Briggs chairperson of the sales said, “The $50 Chamber prize drawing was such a success, the Chamber will be offering the prize again this year.”

With each map purchase, the shopper will be entered to win a $50 Chamber gift certificate. The lucky winner will be drawn at 5 p.m.

Yard sale participants receive a “grape” poster with their map number to be displayed in a prominent location the day of the sale.

The Chamber requests the shoppers make a special effort to patronize those sales who have properly registered.
