With spring finally making its arrival, the garage sale season is in full swing. The upcoming Osseo City-Wide Garage Sale (June 6-8) will be paradise for buyers and sellers alike!
Spring cleaning typically leads to a large pile of stuff you wouldn’t mind getting rid of. Sowhy not sell the items and help pad your wallet this spring? Garage sales are integral to the American landscape. City-wide garage sales help the community build pride and character. They also give everyone a chance to earn some extra cash for their unwanted items. Have you cleaned out your garage or attic recently? Do you have a bunch of items you think someone would love to get their hands on? Put a sale sticker on them and watch the potential buyers line up!
If you plan on having a garage sale this year, you can register your sale at Main Street Pharmacy before June 2 to get your place on the sale map. Maps will then be available at Main Street Pharmacy starting June 6 (the first day of the city-wide garage sale event).
After the garage sale is over, the Salvation Army has volunteered to pick up any unwanted and unsold items from your driveway. Simply call the Salvation Army at 612-332-5855 (by June 2) and tell the operator you are part of the Osseo City-Wide Garage Sale Event and give your address. Leave all unsold and unwanted items in boxes (with Salvation Army clearly written). You can also request a receipt which you can use for your income tax deduction.
So come on out, enjoy the summer weather, walk around town, and check out all of the garage sales around town. You never know what treasures you can find!
