Downtown spearheads citywide 'yard sale'
Fortuna City-wide Yard
FORTUNA -- Fortuna's downtown businesses will share the street with merchandise of a different kind on
June 6, 2009. They will host their third “citywide yard sale” with Main Street as the prime spot for estate and garage sales without the need to run ads, clutter the driveway or hang signs.
The sale will run from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. To sign up for a space call Glenn Reeves at 725-7400.
Merchants will make spaces available for a $10 fee on Main Street between 9th and 13th and on 10th and 11th streets. Sale participants need to sign up in advance and have a space assigned for $10. Sellers who show up the day of the event will be charged $20. Downtown businesses will also be on the street with their own sales.
There are also plans for a donation pick-up after the sale for sellers to donate accepted items to charity.
”We expect to have a great variety of sellers, from antiques to everyday yard sale items and, of course, merchants will be pulling out old stock and merchandise,” said downtown merchant Carol Gossett.
Fortuna area residents who choose to have their sales at home can leave a message at 725-7400 and get their location listed on a flyer for the day's sale.
