The La Verne Chamber of Commerce, the City of La Verne, and Bonita High School will be hosting the fourth annual Community Yard Sale on Saturday, April 20, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon, in the Bonita High School parking lot. This event is a great opportunity to sell off unwanted or surplus items no longer needed. Your items will find a new home, the items won’t find their way to a landfill, and you will even make a few dollars in the process. The event is also open to individual sellers, community groups, clubs, teams, or other groups looking for an easy fundraiser with minimal start up costs.
If you would like to participate as a seller, the cost of renting a space is $35 for two parking spaces or $25 for a single parking space. Applications are available on the links at the bottom of this article or at City Hall or at the Chamber office, which is located at 2078 Bonita Avenue. Applications can also be mailed out by calling 909-593-5265. No yard sale permit is required to participate. Spaces sell out, so be sure to reserve early. At the end of the day we will have bins for recycling and donations so you don’t have to take your left over items home.
It will also be a great place to shop for gently used or vintage treasures. Be sure to come out early for the best selection. In the past there have been great deals on gently used tools, designer hand bags, costume and fine jewelry, art work, furniture, clothing, children’s toys & clothing, antiques, collectibles and so much more. You may even find local businesses offering special promotions on their products or services.
Not only is event a great way to reuse completely high-quality items, it helps the City of La Verne to meet difficult state waste diversion requirements by keeping items out of local landfills. Things you may no longer want will be treasure to someone new. It’s not too early to begin sorting and setting aside items for the April sale. If you don’t have enough items of your own, maybe you could plan to share a space with a friend, relative, or club members. Admission and parking are free, so come early and enjoy the day!
