Shop for bargains at Annandale Fire Department yard sale

The Annandale Volunteer Fire Department’s (AVFD) first-ever communitywide yard sale will take place April 20 in the parking lot of the Annandale Fire Station, 7128 Columbia Pike.

The proceeds from vendor registrations will benefit the AVFD. If the yard sale is as popular as anticipated, it could become an annual or semi-annual event, says organizer Brenda Waller, the wife of AVFD Chief Roger Waller. Individuals with too much stuff they no longer need are encouraged to participate. People who make jewelry or other crafts can also sign up, as well as store owners and nonprofits.

Vendors can register online. The cost for venders is $15, which includes the use of an eight-foot table and chair. Sellers will keep all the profits from their sales, although they can contribute a portion to the AVFD, which depends on donations from the public to help pay for fire trucks, ambulances, and other equipment.

Coffee, donuts, and pizza will be available. In case of rain, the yard sale will be moved indoors to the large hall where the AVFD hosts weekly bingo games.

  1. Nice ideas!!! They should consider doing this as vendor spaces in the bloom. I just came from TN - and it is all the rage. Each vendor gets a little booth/location in the buliding and sells their stuff.
