Block Party, Art Sales, and Garage Sales: A How-To Guide

 

DATE FOR PARTY AND SALES: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2012

HOW TO TAKE PART IN THE SALES:

Selling:

Advertise your sale on our Garage and Art Sale page by sending an email to Phil Minkin (garage sale sellers) at pminkin@juno.com or Linda McKay (artists) at mckaylinda@mac.com. Please include the address, hours of sale (a minimum of 8 a.m. to noon is suggested), location (alley, art studio, porch), and a brief description of your offerings.

The sooner you post your sale the better, of course, but the final deadline is 3 days before the sale (Sept. 19). Meeting that deadline will also get your address on the printed list of sales that will be distributed at each sale site. OWLA will place an ad in the Journal World at no cost to sellers.

Sellers and artists are asked to contribute at least 15% of gross sales to OWLA’s operating funds. We look forward to your participation!

Volunteers for Block Party Needed

The Annual Block Party will be Saturday, September 22, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Your help is needed! A big project like this is best accomplished with a large number of people each taking on a small part.  Just an hour or two can make a big difference; it’s also a great way to meet with your neighbors.

Time slots for a variety of jobs are available from 3:00 to 9:00 on the day of the party.  Details are on the Block Party Volunteers page on this site.  The chair of the party is David Carttar and you can contact him at david@carttar.net or 691-8001.
