Neighborhood Wide Yard Sale

The Board of Directors of Greater Aiken Estates Neighborhood Association (GAENA)  has decided, with encouragement from various members, to resume the biennial neighborhood-wide yard sale. We have selected the date of October22 (rain date October 29) from 8:00 a.m. – until.  GAENA will provide the advertising in the Aiken Standard & online, balloons to mark your participation, and the maps.  All you need to do is some pre-holiday season cleaning!  If you live within the city limits, you must obtain a City permit from the Aiken Standard ($5.00 fee).  Let’s hope for good weather on the 22nd.FYI….

 If you are a City Resident and member, GAENA will reimburse you for the permit — just save your receipt.  Reply to to sign up.  Last day to sign up and be placed on the map is Thursday, October 20.  

Pass the information on to your neighbors — you need not be a GAENA member to participate.  For those who can’t stand yard sale traffic, this is also a heads up!  We ask that all participants respect city ordinances (i.e. Sales do not begin until 8:00 a.m., follow noise restrictions, etc). We also ask that there be no “early bird” previews/sales – this makes it quite unfair for those who are adhering to the guidelines.
