A Gigantic Gananda Community Garage Sale
explodes this weekend on Saturday June 11, 2012 9a-4p and Sunday June 12 2012 9a-1pm. Held annually for the last 29 years and sponsored by the Gananda Rotary Club, home owners in Walworth NY shed their weight in treasures to starving garage salers.
Gananda community home owners pay a small fee for advertising the annual event, and all proceeds from the Gananda Rotary Club are used to support local Gananda Central School scholarships, Camp Onseyawa (serving children with special needs), the Rotary Foundation, Polio Plus, and Literacy Volunteers. Deal catchers from around the surrounding counties swarm to the Walworth NY.
The Gigantic event crossed over 350 homes last year and is expected to be bigger this. Walworth NY homes and families empty their homes and sell the "kitchen sink" for a discounted price. Anything from furniture, tables, electronics, adult and childrens clothes, trinkets, kids toys, play sets, bicycles, and relics can be found if you know where to look.
Families are setting up Garage sale appeal for the Gananda Community Garage sale, putting up tents, signs, organizing, labeling, and arranging. "Garage sale appeal" means preparing the hunters for their big kill. Walworth NY home owners will set up the driveway and yard for starving garage salers, starving for our junk treasures.
How does one survive this rubber necker event solo? One does not. There are many ways to do it but most do it in teams with the invention of smart phones and electronics. I would not be surprised is some techno geeks use portablt cell phone credit card scanners. Now I have not seen this but would not be surprised.
A little advice for individuals venturing out to the homes in Walworth NY. Preview the area before you come by using google maps or other on-line software. Plan to walk a lot. Bring your "golf cart", baby wagon- without child of course, comfortable footwear, a bicycle or other wheeled device to travel quickly without a car. Lastly, lots of CASH...
The Gananda Community garage sale weekend
will have deals and plenty of Walworth NY home owners have purchased a food permit to serve the basics- hamburgers, hots, sausage, and cold non-alcoholic drinks. Walworth NY home owners either love this event or hate it. This coming weekend brings visitors to our commuunity while those not wanting to participate evacuate.
There is a second unmentioned purpose behind this event. Socialization and fun, not to mention most of us take our profits and go spend them again locally on dinner and a night out as we are too exhausted to cook. As they say easy come, easy go.
Bring your , tell your friends, plan your day, make that list and lastly come say hello to a community famous for many things. If you stop by due to this post give me a call and I will gladly be your host and allow you to park freely on my grounds.
HAPPY GARAGE SALING!!
