On Saturday, Dec. 1, there will be bargains and treasures galore available at the annual yard sale to benefit the Apalachicola Margaret Key library.

This year the event will be held at the old library building, 74 Sixth Street in Apalachicola, starting at 8 a.m. and running until 1 p.m.

Among the many items available at this popular annual event are furniture (both large and small pieces), rugs, lamps, all kinds of household goods, art, Christmas holiday decorations, plus vintage, antique, and collectible items. All merchandise is priced to sell.

Shoppers should come early to get first choice. Payment is cash or checks only. Any items you buy should be removed no later than 1:30 p.m. the day of the sale.

Come have a fun time shopping! And tell your friends, or better still, bring them with you. You never know what treasures you’ll discover, that are just what you need or what you’ve been looking for.

All proceeds from the sale go to fund purchases of books and programs for the library at the corner of 12th Street and Highway 98.

There’s also still time to donate items for the yard sale, by bringing them to the old library building on Sixth Street, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 27, 28, and 29. Volunteers will be there to help unload if needed.

Any items donated must be in good re-sale condition; clothing and books are not accepted. All donations are tax deductible, and a tax form will be given at the time of drop off.

If there are household items you have but no longer need or use, donate them to this worthy cause that benefits the entire Apalachicola community.

For more information about the sale or donation of items for the sale, contact Patti McCartney at 653-6504, or email patti@pattimccartney.com; or Jan Thomas 653-1068 or email janetinapalach@gmail.com.

The annual yard sale is a project of PALS, the Patrons of Apalachicola Library Society, Inc. 

Free books to a good home

The Patrons of Apalachicola Library Society, Inc. book sale was a big success during the Florida Seafood Festival, but now is the time to clear out all the books to prepare for the PALS yard sale on Dec. 1.

Please visit the old library at 74 6th Street and browse through all the books and periodicals on the porch. We have cookbooks, science, Florida history and so much more. Come check them out and adopt them now.

It’s not often you get an opportunity like this one. See you at the old library.
