Bargain hunters

A giant garage sale Saturday benefits local charities

By Jenny Coon Peterson March 25th, 2011

Some people have a knack for finding a bargain. They scour garage and estate sales for hidden treasure and usually come up with something pretty amazing.

I am not one of those people. My “big finds” from garage sales past include a rusty waffle iron and a box of old “Sweet Valley High” novels. Not exactly “Antiques Roadshow” material. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try again this weekend.

From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, the expo hall at State Fair Park will play host to the 25th annual Nonprofits Garage Sale. Just like the name suggests, the garage sale will benefit more than 20 Oklahoma nonprofits, like the American Red Cross and Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue. Admission is $2.
