Liberal’s first ever city-wide garage sale is a hit with citizens PDF Print E-mail

Ada Linenbroker, director of Society for the Prevention of Bored Housewives (SPBH), sits on her porch during the city wide garage sale Saturday afternoon. “I was kind of excited about the turnout,” Linenbroker said, “because even though the weather was bad, we had people from a lot of different towns. I saw some people from Perryton (Texas), Beaver (Okla.), Meade, and Sublette. That’s the whole idea of this, to bring people in from out of town. This is something I want to get going because there are some towns that get it built up so big that people come from long distances. When you start having 50 to 100 garage sales then people will drive even further. We’re looking forward to it next year, but we want to make it not just a garage sale, we want to make it a community event where some nonprofit people set something up and any business that wants to be involved, that’s even that much better, because this is another chance to help local businesses make a little extra money.” Daily Leader photo/Lauren Vincent
