Signup for community garage sale begins Monday


Who doesn't like a good yard sale — especially when an entire town is having one?

June 4 marks the eighth year Pine Bluffs and nearby residents gather to sell their gently used stuff.

Despite the spring snow, the time to register for the eighth annual Pine Bluffs community garage sale is on the horizon. Early bird registration runs from April 11 through May 9 with a fee of $10. From May 10 through May 27, participants can register for a fee of $15.

Pine Bluffs Recreation Director Sonja Carlson-Fornstrom said the event is advertised throughout the tri-state region and has been a hit in past years.

“We had 41 participants last year. If you think about it, a neighborhood in Cheyenne with that many participants is a pretty good sale,” Carlson-Fornstrom said.

Interested sellers who do not live in Pine Bluffs can still participate in the sale.

Carlson-Fornstrom said out-of-town sellers may bring their items for sale on a flatbed trailer and set up in Pine Bluffs City Park.

Registering by the May 27 deadline will put sellers' locations on a map to be distributed at local businesses to interested buyers. In addition to being placed on the map, the signup fee will fund advertising in local newspapers throughout the tri-state area. Carlson-Fornstrom said the event attracts buyers from all over.

Members of the Pine Bluffs High School Future Business Leaders of America club will be selling breakfast burritos during the event. The Pine Bluffs Senior Center will also be selling hamburgers at lunchtime.

“It turns out to be a bit of a fundraiser for the whole community,” Carlson-Fornstrom said.

Sellers are encouraged to have their garage sales ready for business by 8 a.m. the day of the event. They can end their sales at their leisure, which Carlson-Fornstrom said is around 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
