Secondhand Safari This Saturday

It's time to harvest the savings this Saturday, October 5 at the final Fall Secondhand Safari. To celebrate the final fall community garage sale, admission is only $1 all day, even for the first "early-bird" hour. A cornucopia of collectibles and secondhand treasures will be available for buying, swapping and selling from 8 a.m.
to 3 p.m.

Starting in 2014, the Secondhand Safari community garage sale event will be held once a year in the spring, but there is still time to take advantage of the special "fall sale send-off" savings. Some booth space is still available for Saturday's sale. Covered spaces are available for only $35--that's $5 off the regular price. Call the Thurston County Fair Office at (360) 786-5453 now to reserve your booth.

Along with garage sale booths, the Secondhand Safari will also have a free book and magazine exchange, food vendors, and more.
