Two upcoming Harlem sales are offering bargain-shoppers great deals and others the chance to clean out their closets and attics.
Harlem High School is holding a rummage sale from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday at the school on Appling-Harlem Highway.
"We'll have new stuff, yard sale stuff," said Jimi Waters, the event organizer. "Some clubs are doing bake sale items. Our art honor society, they are doing artwork to sell as well."
Waters said some people are selling new items from companies they represent. Others are welcome to rent a table for $15 and sell whatever they'd like.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the athletic department.
"Every school that loses students to Grovetown (High School), they also lose a portion of their funding, their budget," Waters said, adding that the football team needs new uniforms. "We want to rebuild and cushion the account for next year."
The following weekend, the city of Harlem is planning its eighth annual Trash to Treasures sale.
The city-sponsored market will be set up from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. March 14 in the field next to Harlem United Met hodist Church on Highway 78.
The event is open to sellers and shoppers, said Denise Carter, the event organizer.
There is no cost for using the space to sell items, and the event isn't restricted to Harlem residents.
"All they have to do is call and get a space," Carter said.
