Town-wide garage sale set in Laverne

Woodward, Okla. — LAVERNE - Saturday marks the return of Laverne's "almost" annual town-wide garage sale.

Terri Wheeler, director of the Laverne Main Street program, explained the event was canceled last August because of excessive hot weather.

"Otherwise, it's been going on since he early '80s," Wheeler said.

The sale is held to allow Laverne citizens to get rid of unwanted property while making some money, as well as to just bring more traffic into Laverne.

At least 33 sellers are participating in this year's town-wide sale.  Maps listing 33 seller locations will be available after 6 a.m. at the Fast Fill and Sooner's convenience stores in Laverne, Wheeler said.

"Signups to get on the map have closed," she said. "But folks can still have a garage sale. They just won't be on the map."

Wheeler said shoppers will find furniture, numerous other household items, and lots of clothing at the sales.

The town-wide sale, which is sponsored by the Laverne Chamber and Main Street organizations, will wrap up at 4 p.m. Saturday.
