Humane Society hoping for successful yard sale

JONESBORO — Treasure hunters can expect to find a plethora of items at this weekend’s Clayton County Humane Society Treasures For Paws Yard Sale.

Although the prospects of a huge number of donations flowing in looked dicey at times, yard sale organizer Gwen Lyle said there was a late rush of donations to ensure a successful sale. And the variety is wide so patrons shouldn’t have a hard time finding something to buy.

“We have tons of stuff and a little bit of everything,” Lyle said. “We’ve got furniture, knick-knacks and pretty much something for everybody.”

But the key to a successful yard sale is customers willing to spend a lot of money to buy lots of stuff. Money raised from the sale is used to pay for operational costs at the Humane ociety’s shelter in Jonesboro.

That is why Humane Society officials are putting out one last plea for residents to come out in droves to the yard sale Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Jonesboro High School, 7728 Zion Blvd., in Jonesboro.

The prices range from 50 cents to $150, said Lyle, and the selection includes sofas, dining room tables, chairs, books and a wide array of electronics. She added there were enough items donated to fill the school’s parking with tables packed with items for sale.

“We’re hoping a lot of people come out and buy a lot of stuff because we’ve worked really hard to get these donations and get everything priced so we can have a successful sale,” Lyle said.
