Whether you love the hunt of a good garage sale or just like to travel down memory lane searching for items from the past, June Elmblad says you’ll enjoy the gigantic sale set for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 27, at Our Lady of Lourdes Church next to Lowe’s.
Our last sale was so popular, according to Elmblad, that we are opening the sale at 7:30 a.m. for bargain hunters who pay a $5 fee. A follow-up sale will be held Monday, May 29, 1-4 p.m.
The event, sponsored by Greenwood Catholic Women’s Club, has a section of tools and outdoor equipment ranging from an aerator, leaf blowers, rakes and shovels to a tiller and more.
Elmblad, coordinator of the sale, says one whole area will feature thousands of holiday décor items perfect for Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter.
There’s also a section of kitchen appliances and dinnerware. “We have a 100-plus set of Pfaltzgraff dishes in the Tea Rose pattern,” said Elmblad, noting that the dishes along with vases and collectibles were donated by the children of the late Sarah and Ed Marut. There’s a full-size refrigerator as well as sets of chef knives.
Furniture ranges from a baby bed, four matching Victorian chairs, a vintage wooden ironing board and a doll’s high chair circa 1950s to a TV stand, desk chairs, an armchair with ottoman and more. In addition, there are children’s toys, handmade lace, an assortment of pillows and enough books to stock a library.
The women will also be selling their popular grilled chicken, tamales, taquitos and desserts.
