Witherbee Neighborhood Swarmed by Buyers

On Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14, Witherbee Neighborhood Association sponsored its First Annual Neighborhood-wide Garage Sale. Thirty-five locations spotted throughout our association area sold everything from furniture to baby clothes. All participants donated $3.00 to cover publicity in the Lincoln Journal-Star and Thirfty Nickel as well as the printing of sale location maps which were distributed to all locations. The map was also located on the Witherbee Neighborhood Association website (www.witherbeena.org). During the week of the sales, over 600 hits were made on the website! Following the sales, Bob Reeker, 3820 J Street and Garage Sale Organizer, made follow up calls to participants to get feedback for future neighborhood garage sales. In addition, each location was encouraged to donate 10% of it's sales to the Witherbee Neighborhood Association.

If you have input about future neighborhood garage sales or have a fun story as a result of the garage sale weekend, please contact Bob Reeker at 402.742.9102 or by email (breeker@lps.org). Thank you to everyone who participated to make this first neighborhood garage sale such a success! Special thanks to Fred Freytag for the use of his sale sign posts and to Doug Keyser; Tammy, Kelsi, and Samantha Svendsen for delivering over 400 maps throughout the neighborhood.

This event was organized by Bob Reeker. Thank You Bob for super job. Look for more stories from the garage sale event soon.
