Creston’s Citywide Garage Sale Saturday will feature more than 30 garage sale sites.

This event is in its ninth year sponsored by Creston Chamber of Commerce.

What will you find?

“Just about anything that you would want (is what you will find),” said Ellen Gerharz, executive director, Creston Chamber of Commerce. “It just amazed me what people buy.”

In years past, garage sale goers could find anything from clothing, shoes, baby gear, kitchen wares, small appliances, electronics, books, tools and toys.

“Creston is known to have some good quality items,” Gerharz said.

Gerharz said the citywide garage sale is also good for local businesses and by advertising, increases the number of out of town “garage salers.”

“In past years the restaurants have done booming business during garage sale days,” Gerharz said. “Now they are prepared.”

Garage sale sites will be posted in the Creston News Advertiser Wednesday through Friday.
