The Crothersville Sesquicentennial and an extended power outage diverted the community’s (and the newspaper’s) attention from the approaching community-wide yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 4.
“The sesquicentennial rightfully held our attention for the first two weeks in September and the windstorm and power outage had us focused on recovering As a result, announcement of the Oct. 4 yard sales got placed on the back burner,” said Curt Kovener, managing editor of the Crothersville Times, sponsor of the twice yearly sales event.
“Since there is such a short amount of time to prevent our traditional advertising, we have decided to try a ‘ya’ll come’ approach,” said Kovener.
No ad promoting specific sale locations will be published. Instead, we will promote Oct. 4 at the Yard Sale day in Crothersville and invite out-of-town visitors to come seeking treasures.
Anyone wishing to hold a yard sale can do so to take advantage of the traditionally large number of buyers. Residents will need to use their own signs, arrows and balloons to attract attention and show directions to their yard sale.
