Franklin Square residents buy goods at yard sale


More than 40 Franklin Square community members sold their unwanted goods at the Franklin Square Civic Association’s second Community Yard Sale on Sept. 21.

“It brings the community together,” Jon Israel, a civic association board member, previously told the Herald, “and gives people the opportunity to have a garage sale and get more foot traffic than they would” if they held their own.

Some of the goods for sale included items for residents’ homes, T-shirts and Halloween decorations.

Each of the vendors had to pay a small fee to reserve their spot. The fee, Israel said, allows the civic association to obtain the necessary permits and insurance, as well as funds all of the advertising for the event.

The vendors, meanwhile, were able to keep all the money they made from their sales.
