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 greateraikenestatesna@gmail.com 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.
