Holding a yard sale is one way to downsize your household while making money.

Holding a yard sale is one way to downsize your household while making money.

On Saturday, July 27 the Friends of the Chazy Public Library will be holding their town-wide yard sale, with all funds going directly to support the library. Maps will be available at the library starting at 7:30 a.m. for $1, with the yard sale running from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Households wishing to participate can do so for $10.

This is the fourth year the Friends of the Library has held their town-wide yard sale.

“It’s a big fund raiser for us. Every dime goes to supporting the library or buying books,” said Carolyn Harding, treasurer of the Friends of the Chazy Public Library.

Last year approximately 35 households took part in the sale. People wishing to participate can contact the library at 846-7676, or Harding at 846-7721.

The sale coincides with Chazy’s annual Old Home Days on Sunday July 28, featuring an antique car show, barbeque, crafts, a flea market, games for kids and more.

ALTONA — The Altona Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary will host its 18th annual town-wide garage sale Saturday, Aug. 3 and Sunday, Aug. 4, with a craft fair and bake sale on Aug. 3 at the Altona Fire Station, on the Devil’s Den Road.

The event, one of the first town-wide garage sales in the North Country, is the sole fund raising event for the Ladies Auxiliary. Raffle tickets and concessions will also be available at the fire station Aug 3.

“We would just like to welcome everybody to come and have a fun day,” said Ellen Montgomery, a member of the Auxiliary who is helping to organize the event. “Saturday is the really big day. You can’t even move in town when it’s going on.”

Last year 63 garage sales were included in the event, with approximately 10 vendors at the craft fair. Maps will be available both days at the Altona Fire Station.

The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Those wishing to reserve a table for the craft fair can call 236-7271. For more information on craft fair or garage sale, call 236-7729, 236-7621 ex. 107, or 236-7271.
