Please register your garage sale by 9pm Monday September 27th...in person at LT's Corner Store. Q - Can businesses register a sidewalk sale? A - Yes! Q - Can I register my home-based business sale? A - Yes! Put what you are selling in your description. Q - I don't have a garage or front yard, is there anywhere I can take my treasures to sell? A - Yes! Contact Lagasse's Studio of Fine Art - she is renting tables/space behind her business. Q - What are the public health orders we have to follow? A - Try to only touch what you will buy...we recommend shoppers carry with them hand sanitizer, and sellers have some available too. Masks should be worn IN garages. Maintain 6' between you and other shoppers. Sellers, please consider flow of traffic when laying out your sale. And of course, please stay home (& don't host) if you are feeling unwell. Q - Do regular traffic rules apply? A - YES! It is a very busy weekend for us with lots of people around. Just because you are in a rush to get to all the sales, doesn't mean that you don't have to follow the "rules of the road" and pay attention to other motorists and pedestrians.
Stay safe everyone, and be kind!
