As your saavyVernon Hills realtor, I’m always looking for a good deal. There are many deals to be found at garage sales, and the Village of Vernon Hills is taking that idea to a new level. On Saturday, September 10, the village is hosting the first Vernon Hills Community Garage Sale from 9am to 1pm at the Vernon Hills Metra Station on Route 45.
This year Vernon Hills began putting out a weekly email listing of local garage sales. The popularity of all those neighborhood sales shows a high level of interest in “garage-saling”, so the village is now sponsoring a community-wide sale. With summer drawing to a close, it’s the perfect time for folks to go through their garages – and closets and cabinets!- especially if you are planning to move this fall or next spring.
As a Vernon Hills Realtor, I always tell my sellers to Declutter! An item that you may no longer use may be just what your neighbor was looking for. An added feel-good in the Vernon Hills Garage Sale is knowing that the nominal participation fee goes directly to support the Vernon Hills Park District Family Scholarship Program. A beneficiary of the program is the Little Learners Preschool Program at the Vernon Hills’ Sullivan Community Center.
Bicycles, books, kids’ toys, home décor, and sports equipment are just a few of the items that shoppers will run across. The entire atmosphere promises to be high energy as people turn out to buy and sell, and passersby on Route 45 through Vernon Hills get drawn in by the lure of the crowds. I love the hustle and bustle of friendly shoppers and sellers, and the good-natured bargaining that goes on at garage sales.
