Wise Owl Shopper Discounts


Girard’s Mile-Long Yard Sale continues Saturday – GoErie.com

Shoppers come from near and far for bargains along Lake Street and side streets.

GIRARD — When neighbors first told Kathleen Langford about the Lake Street Mile-Long Yard Sale, she didn’t grasp the enormity of it.

Langford first heard about the sale when she bought her house on Lake Street in Girard in 2006.

“I innocently said, ‘How big can it be?'” Langford said. “It was like a carnival.”

The Mile-Long Sale has been a Girard tradition the weekend after another Girard tradition — Dan Rice Days — for almost a half-century. This year’s sale started Friday and continues Saturday along Lake Street, from Rice Avenue to Bethel Assembly of God church, and along side streets.

Books, DVDs, furniture, toys, clothes, record albums, housewares, even vehicles are for sale on front lawns.

And many lawns accommodate four or five sales.

Kacey Owens and husband Ben on Friday were joined by Kacey’s parents, Ben’s mother and a cousin, all with items displayed on tables on their lawn. The Owens also sold some things, and have for the eight years they’ve lived on Lake Street, Kacey Owens said.

Finding things to sell isn’t a problem, she said.

“I keep digging through things saying, ‘That’s got to go,’ and, ‘That’s got to go,'” she said, arranging the items on a table early Friday.

Sellers from beyond the neighborhood set up shop on Girard High School property fronting Lake Street. Refreshments and Amish-made baked goods are also for sale.

Shoppers each year come from as far away as West Virginia. On Lake Street on Friday, Jesse Casebolt Jr., 46, watched as his father, Jesse Casebolt Sr., 77, strapped a lawn mower to the roof of their minivan. The Casebolts drove 315 miles from Webster Springs, West Virginia, just for the sale, and not for the first time. They’ve come regularly in recent years.

“Sometimes they have a lot of good stuff up here,” the younger Casebolt said. “But it’s a long drive.”

Girard native Marilyn Bowser was home from Florida for her 45th Rice Avenue Union High School reunion, and stayed a little longer for the sale.

“I remember going every single year,” she said.

Jeannie Kosmatine, from Girard, also goes to the sale almost every year. Kosmatine remembers buying canning jar lids and seals some years ago.

“They were $1 apiece, and I bought something like 30 of them,” Kosmatine said. “My entire family has used those lids. I don’t know if I even have any left. You can find some really good bargains.”

Including books and a banana costume for Halloween, bought this year by Christina Hickman and her son, Noah Hickman, of Lake City.

Bargains for sale on Esther Kuntz’s lawn this year include T-shirts left over from the 2017 Dan Rice Days festival. Kuntz had already sold four, for $5 each — half price — early Friday.

Kuntz has been selling things for every Mile-Long Sale since 1969 or 1971; recollections vary on when the late Linnie Meeder and Dorothy Vangor organized the first Mile-Long Sale.

Kuntz remembers being at work when Vangor stopped by and asked if she could “put some things out” for the sale. Kuntz found toys and clothes her children had outgrown, and displayed them on a ladder and pole. Kuntz’ daughter, Karen, then 9, handled the sales while her parents worked.

“I got home that day and she said, ‘Don’t ever make me do that again,'” Kuntz said. “People wanted to buy the ladder, a wash basin and the dog.”
