Big sale

Cain Center holding coat, garage sale Saturday

Athens — Looking for a bargain?

Have a little money left from Christmas that is burning a hole in your pocket?

The Cain Center has the answer.

Okay, maybe it is not about you. Maybe it is about helping someone in need of a nice, warm coat for these blistery winter days.

The Cain Center is to the rescue again.

This Saturday, the Cain Center will host a Garage and Coat Sale from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is plenty of free parking, while admission is also free.

“The community has come to love this event,” organizer Bethany Airhart said. “Our Garage and Coat sale is a wonderful service to the community. A 5-person family can get high-quality coats for under $50 for the entire family. And unlike flea markets, you don’t have to weather the cold to save money. We have over 1,000 coats to sell for either $5 or $10 each.  Many of these coats are high-end, name-brand coats, including North Face, Ralph Lauren, Polo, Fubu, Spyder, Levi, Osh Kosh B’Gosh and many more.”

In addition to the coats, Airhart said booth space for garage-sale items will be provided.

“For $30, you can rent an 8x10-foot booth with tables and chairs. No vendors please,” she said. “This is a wonderful opportunity to get rid of all that clutter left over from this holiday season, and make a little extra money. We would love to see all of you participate. So, come out and see just what Cain Center has to offer.”

For more information about the sale, or to rent a booth, contact the Cain Center at 903-677-2000.
