Volunteers from the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library gathered at a barn on South Street this week to sort through books slated for inclusion in this weekend’s three-day book sale at the library, to be held in conjunction with the Townwide Yard Sale. (Photo by Peter Lindner. Click to enlarge.)
Today, the Yard Sale website carries the third-annual event’s information packet for shoppers, a downloadable PDF that includes a locator map and addresses of registered sellers, along with brief information about what’s for sale.
More than 115 homes are participating in the border-to-border bargain bonanza, which this year has a new host: the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library. In conjunction with the event, the group is kicking off a three-day used-book sale at the library Saturday morning.
The library, at 84 West Front Street, will also be where registered yard-sale sellers can pick up free helium balloons to decorate their home displays and help visitors find them. Balloons will be available from 7:30 to 10a.
The info pack is available at the Yard Sale website, which has helpful information on how to conduct a successful yard sale, what to do with leftover goods, and feature stories.
Have a great time, folks, and please remember to be careful crossing streets with your armloads of bargains.
