Whether you’re a musician or a carpenter, you’ll probably be able to find something to your liking at Pulaski County Humane Society’s annual “gigantic” yard sale slated for August.
“The community has been very generous in donating lots and lots of items. You name it and I bet we’ve got it,” said Humane Society’s Executive Director Candice Simmons. All proceeds from the yard sale provide food and basic pet care for the community’s homeless animals.
She said donated items are being stored in a 25-foot trailer that is “already full to the hilt.” Donated items already include a piano, guitar, lots of tools, toys, books and framed prints. “That’s just what you can see at glance before you start delving” into the trailer, she added.
According to Simmons, Pulaski County Humane Society is known for these “gigantic” yard sales, and this year’s sale, Saturday, Aug. 2, will be no different. The sale starts at 7 a.m. at Pulaski County High School.
If shopping makes you hungry or thirsty, Simmons said a concession stand is on site during the sale, offering hotdogs, chips and cold beverages.
Donations for the sale will be collected through Tuesday, July 29. Items can be dropped off at Pulaski County Animal Shelter, 80 Dublin Park Road (off Route 100 near Dublin’s police station and post office) Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to noon.
