With only one week to go until the Thurston County Fair's annual Secondhand Safari, this weekend is your chance to clean out the clutter in preparation to make a tidy sum at the May 3 community garage sale. Whether you're buying or selling, Secondhand Safari is your chance to keep usable goods out of the landfill, making your spring just a bit greener.
If you're more of a collector than a cleaner, the Secondhand Safari will have just the thing you're looking for. Saturday, May 3 will be a springtime extravaganza of buyers, sellers, swappers and traders, with over 1,500 visitors and 100 vendors in years past. Along with garage sale booths, the Secondhand Safari will also have educational booths, a free book and magazine exchange, entertainment, food, and more. This year, admission to Secondhand Safari is just $1 all day long, so get ready for bargain hunters galore!
Not sure if you have enough gently used treasures for a booth? Secondhand Safari is a great opportunity to clean out the clutter and make a tidy sum for your family group, school club, church, charity or scouting club. Only a handful of booth spaces are left for people with gently used treasures to swap or sell. Call the Thurston County Fair Office today at (360) 786-5453 before they're all gone!
Set up for sellers will be on Friday, May 2 from noon to 10 p.m. The doors will be locked after set up Friday evening, and security will be on-site until the event opens Saturday at 8 a.m. WHAT: Secondhand Safari—Thurston County Fair's annual community garage sale
