‘BEST ONE YET’ Community Yard Sale returns to Seaside

Deborah Wheeler
The Seaside Community Yard Sale runs Oct. 6 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

One of the area's most anticipated events is set for a return engagement Oct. 6 on Seaside's Amphitheater lawn — the biannual Seaside Community Yard Sale.

Folks are known to come from near and far to buy and/or sell antiques, and new and used items at the 100 tables around the amphitheater, which were fully reserved weeks ago.

Everything from clothes to furniture, to fishing rods, to china, to handmade soaps and candles can be found there, as well as everything else you have been searching for.

30A Radio will be onstage again, spinning music to keep all shoppers in the best of upbeat shopping moods.

One of the vendors returning to the yard sale for the second time is woodworker Don Puckett of Atlanta. He brought his objects d'art down in February for the first time and did well enough to lure him back again.

"I make coat racks, coffee tables, and a whole hodgepodge of things with wood," said the former mechanic turned woodworker.

Puckett also has shown his wares at festivals at WaterColor, Gulf Place and at Amelia Island.

Seaside's Ono Surf Shop will return with his always-popular selection of flip flops for $10.

Another always-popular vendor who is setting up again will be Déjà Vu ladies apparel with their beautiful ladies wear offered at yard sale prices.

And after finding a new outfit at the Déjà Vu table, Shooz of Grayton can help you with a nice new shoe wardrobe — at bargain basement prices.

"There should be something for everyone," said Lori Smith, Seaside's marketing coordinator.

One added advantage this year will be a free shuttle service offered with pickup at Publix at WaterColor Crossing from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., making plenty time available to go in Modica's Market for coffee prior to the 8 a.m. opening of the yard sale, and affording plenty of time after to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

"We look for this to be the best one yet," said Smith.
