Reserve spot now for Swannanoa yard sale

Staff reports

Vendor spots are now available for Swannanoa’s popular Community Yard Sale, sponsored by Friends and Neighbors of Swannanoa from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8. If previous years are any indication, vendor spots will sell out quickly, and hundreds will show up.

The event will happen next to the Swannanoa Ingles parking lot, 2299 U.S. 70.

Once again, hundreds of people are expected to show up at the Swannannoa Community Yard Sale in October.

Because vendor spaces are limited, FANS suggests reserving a spot as soon as possible. To reserve a 10- by 10-foot space (bring your own table), visit and follow the links (or call 828-581-9131). Vendor spaces have sold out every time. The cost per space is $10 cash, collected at check-in.

Proceeds from the rental fees are used to fund community projects in Swannanoa. FANS, a nonprofit organization, sponsors the yearly community clean-ups, has a giving garden and sends out an e-newsletter about Swannanoa happenings. It also is a contributing sponsor of Groovin' on Grovemont concerts and is working with the county to build bus shelters for residents.
