Spring is in the air!!!! (too bad about the temperature...)

Time to start thinking about this year's 

Golden Triangle Garage Sale !!!

March Break is over. Holiday time is done. Time to get to that Spring cleaning and with that your collection of wonderful items to sell at this year's Golden Triangle Garage Sale.

This year's sale will be held on Saturday, June 2nd from 8am until 2pm. As in previous years, the Salvation Army will provide a truck at 65 Pepler Avenue at 2pm until 4pm on the day of the sale to collect unwanted or unsold items. This is always a great donation day for the Salvation Army and a wonderful feel good day for everyone else.

Where did the idea of Spring cleaning come from your ask?????

Some researchers trace the origin of spring cleaning to the Iranian Nowruz, the Persian new year, which falls on the first day of spring. Iranians continue the practice of "khooneh tekouni" which literally means "shaking the house" just before the Persian new year.

Who would have known.....

Time for everyone to get on the band wagon and start sharing the garage sale date with friends and family and anyone else who will listen....please post on your social media whenever possible. It is true...posting closer to sale time will most likely be more productive but it is good to get everyone to mark it in their calendars now.

'Til next post....Happy Spring Cleaning!!!!
