American Legion Post 509 Yard/Garage Sale Event

3509 N. First Street, Fresno
February 28, 2009 through March 1, 2009, 7:00am to 5:00pm
An indoor yard/garage sale to benefit veteran programs. Open to the public. Food and beverages for sale during event. Buy goods or sell your goods (table rentals required). Concert ticket giveaways each day to lucky attendees.
Mildred (559) 250-8247 or Sandy (559) 269-2798 for additional details and table rentals.

I'm a huge fan of garage and yard sales, especially those who benefit local organizations. It's a wonderful way to prevent waste and recycle items and clothing that may otherwise end up in a dumpster. As the weather warms up, so with the yard sales! Check Fresno's Craigslist and you can map out your Saturday hunt with Googlemaps before hand (and save time and gas)!
