According to Susan Farnum, one of the coordinators of this event, they continue to host the yard sale every year because of the success that they have every time they host it.

Farnum said that this year they will have a large variety of items, including household toys, lawn and garden items, furniture, collectibles, books, CDs, clothing and more.

She also emphasized that the prices are low and also negotiable.

“Not many people walk away empty-handed,” Farnum said.

“At our yard sale, we enjoy seeing smiles on people's faces as they find needed household items for a price they can actually afford,” Farnum said. “We also enjoy watching a collector when he/she discovers that perfect item at a reasonable price.”

Also, Farnum said that this year, for the first time, all proceeds will benefit the Ward's Chapel Food Pantry that opened in February.

Farnum said the pantry is open on the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the church hall.

“The pantry's mission is to gather and provide food and personal and home care items for members of our church and community to eliminate hunger, promote nutrition and health, and give hope to those feeling hopeless,” Farnum said.

Throughout the yard sale, there will be food available to purchase. They will have egg sandwiches, muffins, and donuts for breakfast and hot dogs for lunch. They will also offer cold drinks and snacks.

The yard sale will be hosted indoors, so it will be held rain or shine. It starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m.

The church is at 11023 Liberty Road in Randallstown.
