Norway church to hold indoor yard sale

NORWAY — Second Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, 205 Main St., will hold its sixth indoor yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 17.  Known for its annual outdoor August yard sale, this year has presented a challenge.  Due to COVID-19 the church is having several smaller sales this year.

This sixth sale is a deep discount sale.  The church will provide the bags and all that can be fit inside will cost $5.  There will be discounts on all items that do not fit in the bags.  Articles will include decorations, holiday gifts, small appliances, linens, dishes, cookware, household items, antiques,  kids toys, sporting goods, tools and furniture.

They are spaced in the church basement so that workers and shoppers can maintain a social distance.  All are required to wear masks.  Gloves and hand sanitizer will be provided by the church.  Only a limited number will be able to shop at a time.

The money raised will be used for church missions, which include the free drive-thru supper, online worship service, Bible study, knitting and book groups. Tickets for the annual November prize calendar will also be on sale for $10 each.  There will be 62 chances to win.
