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.”
