Bank Holiday Monday 1st May 10.00am - 3.00pm
Welcome to the 2017 Ratby Yard Sale website!
We will be holding the second Yard Sales event on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May 2017 starting at 10.00am finishing at 3.00pm.
For those who don’t know what a ‘Yard Sale’ is here is a quick summary:
Residents of Ratby who wish to hold a Yard Sale on their property are invited to register their address, free of charge, on a live online map so that people know where the sales are taking place.
In addition to registering the location of your sale it is suggested that you give a brief summary of what you will be selling, that way people can search out more easily what they want to find. On the day you simply set up and sell your belongings, somewhere on your property, on your drive, in your garage etc.
The live yard sale map can be accessed on the day using your smart phone as you walk between the Yard Sales or printed maps detailing the location of the garage sales will be available in the Church and Church Rooms.
The event will be widely advertised to bring in outsiders and also encourage Ratby residents to make a tour of the village, meet their neighbours and buy someone else’s unwanted treasures.
On the day the Parish Church on Church Lane will be open serving warm and cold drinks and homemade cakes. Also the Church will be open to visitors between 10.00am – 3.00pm.
There is no charge to register your Yard Sale or any commission charge. The aim of the event is to recycle unwanted goods all for the greater good of our lovely planet.
