There was a bit of rain during the night proceeding the garage sale, and the early morning of June 23 saw some overcast and a chill in the air. But Kennydale’s residents who planned to have a sale regardless were pleased to see the weather improve greatly, and by 9 am, most of them had their wares set out and had eager buyers on hand.
The Kennydale Neighborhood Association again provided red balloons to all sellers to help make their sales more visible; this year we initially had two distribution points set up, and a good number of sellers dropped by to get their balloons. By 9 am, we had one or two dozens balloons left, so our volunteers drove around to hand deliver the remainder to sellers who didn’t have time to pick them up. This provided our KNA team with the opportunity to get an exact count of the number of sales, which was: 13 in “Upper” Kennydale, and 42 in “Lower” Kennydale. Given that we likely missed a few sales due to several parts of the neighborhood where the streets only run for a few blocks, we’re reporting a total of 59 sales for the day. A few sales also were extended to Friday and/or Sunday, which makes a lot of sense in terms of $$ gained for one’s overall effort!
We would like to thank all residents who participated in this years sales, also our Garage Sale Chairperson, Rajendra Agrawaal, and Saturday’s volunteers who helped to ensure that this sale would again be a great “neighborly” event: Janice Dougherty, Justin Hoover, Lynne and Bruce Milnor, Derrick Reese, and Vicki & Darius Richards!
