Turn Your Spring Cleaning into Cash at Secondhand Safari
Reserve a booth at Thurston County Fair's annual Garage Sale & Reuse Fair

Put a spring in your step and money in your wallet this season by reserving a booth for the annual Secondhand Safari at the Thurston County Fairgrounds.

Saturday, May 2 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.

Outdoor spaces and covered spaces for the May 2 event are available to anyone with gently used treasures to swap or sell. Call the Thurston County Fair Office at (360) 786-5453 to reserve your booth:
  • $25 for outdoor booth, approximately 10x10 feet

  • $40 for covered booth, approximately 10x10 feet

The Secondhand Safari will be on Saturday, May 2 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Set up for sellers will be on Friday, May 1 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.

Representatives from Goodwill Industries will be on hand throughout the day on May 2 to accept donations (at their discretion), giving sellers the chance to donate any of their unsold items at the end of the day.

For more information on the May 2 Secondhand Safari, or to reserve your booth, contact the Thurston County Fair Office at (360) 786-5453 or visit www.ThurstonCountyFair.org.
