Kroc Center Seeks Vendors for Upscale Garage Sale
With spring cleaning just around the corner, The Salvation Army Kroc Center encourages all who are planning on having a garage sale to consider being a part of the Upscale Garage Sale. The event will take place Saturday, April 2, from 8am to 1pm. Event entry is just $1 for non-members. Kroc Members receive free admission.
“The Upscale Garage Sale is a great opportunity for both vendors and shoppers alike,” stated Special Events and Scheduling Coordinator Brooke Wade. “Vendors don’t have to worry about advertising their sale or canceling last minute due to weather, and shoppers can shop with many vendors in one convenient location. Additional advantages to choosing booth space at the Upscale Garage Sale include- no garage cleaning, having access to one of the earliest garage sale events in the area, convenient set-up times, it is a heavily marketed and well-attended event, and no early birds arriving before you’ve completed set-up.”
In addition to traditional garage sales, vendors from the area are also encouraged to participate in the event. In the past, companies such as Thirty-One, Pink Zebra, Tupperware, and more have rented booths.
The annual event allows the public to get a head start on spring cleaning by purchasing vendor booths inside The Kroc Center gymnasium to sell unwanted items or sell products. A 10’x10’ booth can be rented for $35. A 10’x20’ booth can be rented for $70. Booths needing electrical access, which are limited in availability, can be rented for an additional $10. Booth payment must be made by March 25.
Vendors are encouraged to reserve their booth spaces soon, as space is limited. Following the event, vendors have the option of donating their unwanted merchandise to The Salvation Army Family Store rather than moving it again. The Family Store truck will be on-site to accept those items.
