Gainesville’s “Greatest Garage Sale” came back for another year at the Gainesville Regional Airport Saturday. Many people came out to sell their wares, attracting a large number of bargain hunters.
CBS4, NBC9 and Gainesville Regional Airport hosted the sale to raise money for the March of Dimes. March of Dimes is a charity that focuses on ending infant mortality, birth defects in newborns and premature birth.
Sellers paid a rental fee of $20 to set up a shop. The fees were donated to the March of Dimes.
Among the vendors was Michael A. Perry, who collects Coca-Cola commemorative bottles and memorabilia.
“I have over 10,000 bottles in a warehouse, he said. “I’m just selling off some duplicates.”
In Windsor, the Zucchini Festival and the volunteer fire department are almost synonymous. The festival started out as a silly fundraiser for Windsor's fire department and May will mark the 35th time zucchinis take over the town.
