Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Bighorns' Buffalo Chapter will have their annual garage sale starting Thursday and running through Sunday at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Buffalo.
The event is a fundraiser for Habitat that allows them to purchase materials to build affordable housing in Sheridan and Johnson Counties.
Sherry Keffer, Vice-President of the Buffalo Chapter, and Nancy Orwig, Habitat member, explain what the shopper may find at the garage sale.
The Buffalo chapter is currently constructing their seventh home, and have selected the family for their eighth home they hope to start next year.
The garage sale items have been donated by area residents, with building materials sent to the Restore in Sheridan, and the sellable household items earmarked for the sale.
Nothing goes to waste, Keffer said, what isn't sold during the sale will be donated to other non-profits for their use.
The sale will start today with an “early-bird” sale from 5 to 8 pm. For $10, those serious garage salers and/or collectors can peruse the goodies before the general sale starts. Admission is free the rest of the weekend.
Friday and Saturday the sale will begin at 8am and close at 3pm, and Sunday's hours will be from 11am to 4pm.
Lunch will be available from St. Luke's Lutheran Church's Saints and Sinners Caterers on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Something new this year will be the “Bottle Bid” where players win every time they play. Prizes range from 75 cents to $75.
