“Thanks” to the Eminence City Council for giving its approval for a city-wide yard and garage sale that was held in our community on August 9. This was the first time Eminence had held an event of this nature. In conjunction with the National Garage/Yard Sale Day, things worked well. The NGYSD, is a time when communities work together to reduce, reuse and recycle merchandise that would otherwise be thrown away.
It appears that friends, families and neighborhoods that shared space and combined their possessions, benefited from a number of sales. Clothing, books, toys, and household were the “hot” items of the day, with a few small tools also being sold. Some Eminence merchants also saw a slight increase in business.
Again, thanks to the City Council, merchants and all who participated in making this day successful.
