FENCE seeking sellers for community yard sale

Published 5:52pm Tuesday, January 22, 2013

The Community Garage Sale is back at Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE).

After a short hiatus FENCE will host the highly popular community garage sale at the horse show facility. The sale is set for March 23 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Anyone can sell anything from household items to food. Non-profit groups are encouraged to bring items or provide drinks and snacks as a fund-raiser.

“We brought back the garage sale by popular demand,” said FENCE Executive Director Carrie Knox. “All of us here at FENCE want to be responsive to what our community needs. Ya’ll do your spring cleaning, and bring it here and make some money!”

Sellers keep all proceeds but a small fee will be charged to rent a stall space. The garage sale is under cover, so come rain or shine. There is plenty of parking on site.

The facility is located on 3381 Hunting Country Rd, five minutes off IH 26 near Landrum.
