The Endless Yard Sale
The Endless Yard Sale, part of Orrington’s Old Home Week festivities, has grown into one of the most anticipated events of our region. Over 100 households on 70 miles of Orrington byways participated this year and we expect more next year! Thousands of treasure seekers from as far away as Florida and Atlantic Canada came and made Orrington the best place in the State of Maine to find the most incredible bargains.
T'S SPRING CLEANING TIME! Save your excess stuff for the annual Endless Yard Sale!
Last year, there were 94 listed sales that included over 120 households, PLUS another 20-plus yards sales that did not make it onto the map. WOW!
The coveted Endless Yard Sale Map reached an all-time high of 20,886 on facebook, plus hundreds of downloads from the website. Additionally, 2,000 printed copies were distributed to local retailers. An informal poll was conducted of various yard sales, asking for approximate sales income. Although it is not official, it appears that our yard salers brought in close to $250,000! An added bonus was their attics, basements and garages are all cleaned out!
To be a part of this amazing bargain hunter’s paradise, you simply need to register your yard sale. There is no permit or fee required. Free 11” x 17” Yard Sale signs (limit 2 per home) and 8 1/2” x 11” No Parking signs (to make sure the road ways are clear) will be available at the Public Library and Town Hall in July.
Printed maps will be available at these local businesses on Thursday afternoon, July 18: Foster's On the Run, Bob's Kozy Korner, Dysart's, Lav's Auto, Dunkin' Donuts, PizzaLand, Fusion, Public Library, Town Hall, Twinsfeather, Laundromat and Car Wash. The map will be also posted online at facebook.com/OrringtonOldHomeWeek.
