Mill Creek Garage Sale
Are you free this coming weekend? If your answer is yes, then come and join the Mill Creek Garage Sale this Saturday May 4th. Thousands of residents will put their personal items up for sale, hoping to finally get rid of them and make a bit of cash at the same time. Organizers expect an equal number of bargain hunters to come, some even arriving all the way from Canada.
This Saturday’s event is not just for Mill Creek residents and bargain hunters. If you’re a businessman or an entrepreneur, you can definitely look forward to the following aside from finding great bargains.
Meeting New People
The Mill Creek Garage Sale will provide you with a great venue for socializing and networking. You may meet your next partner, affiliate, or client from the community. You have been networking too much on LinkedIn and spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter. Now it’s time to get some fresh air and meet real people for a change.
Getting Fresh Ideas
Whatever the nature of your business, community activities are great for meeting people and learning about the locale. You can gain new insights about the city, which you will never find in books or the Internet. If you’re looking for something that will inspire your or influence your next venture, why not drop by Mill Creek this weekend? You may come across a useful furniture piece or a trinket you’ll treasure for life.
Helping The Local Economy
Events like this help encourage the flow of goods and revitalize the local economy. Whether or not you can afford to buy brand new stuff, going for old ones certainly won’t hurt. Aside from your patronage, your presence also means a lot. You can do a lot this coming Saturday, like helping people sell their items; aiding volunteers manage the crowds, or donating your own items to the Goodwill Trailer.
The Mill Creek Garage Sale has been running for over 30 years. It’s held bi-annually, with the next one scheduled in October. There’s actually an interesting story to how the garage sale started. If you want to know about it – and enjoy the abovementioned activities – then join the event!
Hope to see you there!
