Earth Day Recycle/Reuse Yard Sale-an opportunity to sell or buy

Waynesboro: Bargain-hunters can experience the "thrill of the chase" in finding yard sale treasures by shopping at Renfrew Institute's 7th annual Recycle/Reuse Earth Day Yard Sale on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
The yard sale is held during the institute's Earth Celebration Day and Festival of Art event on the grounds of Renfrew Park in Waynesboro. Rain location is Waynesboro Area Middle School.
The event is designed for sellers as well as shoppers. Individuals, families or groups can raise funds by renting a yard sale space to sell items. Spaces are $15 each, double spaces for $25 and triple spaces for $30. Each space accommodates an 8-foot table or two card tables. Sellers must bring their own tables.
In the spirit of recycling, several area groups are collecting items for re-use or proper disposal. The Lion's Club will collect used eyeglasses, the Lioness Club will collect used cell phones in support of Women In Need, and Summitview Elementary School will collect used printer cartridges (no copy toner cartridges please). A disposal bin for used batteries will be available. All types of household and electronic device batteries are accepted, except large acid batteries that exceed 11 lbs.
Again this year, CFAR/Waynesboro Running organizers are collecting "gently used running shoes" to support the Waynesboro Area Middle School running club.
Early birds will find breakfast fare offered for purchase at the yard sale-fresh doughnuts and hot coffee donated by Krumpe's Do-nuts and Port City Java, plus tea, cocoa and baked goods. Hot dogs, pita and hummus, beverages and other tasty items will also be sold, so shoppers and vendors can have breakfast or lunch in the park.
Renfrew Institute is not accepting yard sale items from the public. Pre-registration is preferred for vendors, but you may register upon arrival. No food or drink sales are permitted. For more information and a registration form call the institute at 762-0373 or visit
