Bargain Hunters and Treasure Seekers Are Expected to Flock to Indiana’s Largest Indoor Garage Sale
The 39th Annual Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale and Marketplace is coming to the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1200 E. 38th St Indianapolis. The event will be held in the Blue Ribbon and Champions Pavilions from 9:00am to 6:00pm on Saturday, January 10 and 10:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday, January 11. More than 600 booths will be filled with every item imaginable at can’t-pass-up prices.
The tough economic times facing Americans over the past 7 years have made garage sales more popular than ever. Gregg Kettles, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles who studies consumers and outdoor commerce was quoted in the New York Times saying that, “This is the perfect storm for garage sales. We’re still feeling the effects of coming off a 20-year boom in which consumers filled ever-bigger houses. Now people need cash because of the bust.” Naturally, when more sellers dig deeper for items to sell, the bargains and treasures available to buyers are better than ever.
At the 39th Annual Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale and Marketplace, shoppers can expect to find gently used clothing, furniture, items to fill a dorm room, books, collectibles, glassware, antiques, estate sale items, and much more. Event organizers say it is impossible to catalog the thousands of items for sale. Many items will even be available for under $1.00.
