Thread: Need help to find location for Charity Fundraiser in SoMD

    Need help to find location for Charity Fundraiser in SoMD

    We have a horse trailer FULL of household goods to sell to support the RESCUE. Do you know of a high-traffic area that we can park our horse trailer with space to unload it to setup our tables for a fundraiser sale? Along 301, RT 5, or even along a busy road like Old Washington Road/RT 925? We left a message for the Cross County Baptist Church on RT 925, asking if we could use part of their parking lot for a sale, but have not heard back from them. We desperately need to have this sale soon before it gets cold. We may even need to have several Saturday sales. Several people have suggested that we rent a space at an upcoming flea market but one parking space isn't enough space for a horse trailer full of goods, and we can't see ourselves being able to pay for say 4 or 6 spaces to have our sale.

    If you'd like to volunteer at the sale, please let us know.

    PLEASE HELP US FIND A LOCATION FOR THE CHARITY SALE .

    Thanks for your suggestion. "Buy a table" is a problem for us, we have an entire horse trailer FULL of goods, and the amount of space we would need at a "buy a table" event would be cost prohibitive.

    What about at Peppers Pet Pantry? Not sure what the law is concerning the parking lot or the space in front of her store, may be worth asking though.

    My lease states we are not allowed to have sidewalk sales or anything like that. I think they would frown on having a yard sale type event in the parking lot. Sorry!

    How big is this Horse Trailer, is it a 6 horse with a tack room 5th wheel or a two horse tag-along ? For about 20 bucks you can get a space every sat morning at the Calvert Co Fairgrounds flea market. If you get there early you can get a corner and that should give you plenty of room. Key word here, get there early, before sunup.
    Sometimes you just gotta spend a few bucks to make a few bucks.

    Apparently, the Twenty bucks is excessive.
