AUBURN -- Yard-sale enthusiasts, mount up.
The city of Auburn's popular Community Yard Sale is prepping for an encore beginning March 13 after an inaugural year that saw the event flourish.
Charlotte Ewing, the city's events coordinator, said the sale debuted in April last year with seven vendors. By its September finale, there were 35.
Bargain hunters found a bit of everything: Clothing, toys, household appliances, furniture, antiques, tools, records, books, etc.
"You name it, it was probably there," Ewing said.
The sales will take place at 8 a.m. the second Saturday of each month through September in the heart of downtown Auburn. Booths are $10 each, a nominal fee to cover advertising costs, Ewing said. Vendors must provide their own set-ups and displays.
Ewing said the event encourages community members to rekindle old friendships and begin new ones. Making a buck or two is secondary.
"We have no specific number of booths," Ewing said. "We have plenty of room."
