Mulberry’s fifth annual Turner Trade Day and Community Yard Sale will be Saturday at the Turner Community Building.
About 16 booths have already been rented for the sales event, said organizer Travis Steele. Last year, 22 vendors signed up for the sale, he said.
Shoppers can find everything from antiques, and home and garden items to baked goods and crafts. Some items include antique farm implements, and old chicken nests that have been repurposed as potato bins, Steele said.
About 300 people visited the sale last year, he said.
“It’s a good day of visiting for people to come around and get reacquainted,” Steele said.
Members of the Turner Extension Homemakers Club will be on hand selling baked goods, snack foods and drinks.
The event is being held inside and outside the community building at 11601 Mintha Lane, with plenty of parking available, Steele said.
Organizers are holding the event in May this year to avoid the hot weather, Steele said. Previous years had the seen the event held in mid-summer, but last year it was so hot the vendors had to pack up at 1 p.m., he said.
This year the event opens at 7 a.m. and will stay open until it “peters out,” Steele said. He expects that to be at about 4 p.m.
Booth spaces are still available. A 12-f00t by 10-foot outside space rents for $10 and an inside 8-foot by 10-foot space rents for $15.
Proceeds from booth rentals go toward maintenance of the Turner Community Center building and grounds, which was previously the old Turner schoolhouse, Steele said.
Game nights, women’s quilting and suppers are held at the center weekly, he said.
