25 years of great stuff: VMS 25th annual garage sale runs April 28-29

VAIL — Imagine Carl Sagan strolling through Vail Mountain School gym exclaiming "Billions and billions," and you'll have some idea how much wonderful stuff is available for Vail Mountain School's 25th annual garage sale.

The annual event is one of the largest garage sales in the valley. During the past 24 years, it has become a much-anticipated tradition for folks on the quest for great stuff at low prices.

Speaking of great stuff at low prices, fill-a-bag starts at noon Saturday. You'll get to fill a whole bag with great stuff for only $20.

"We've had an incredible outpouring of support from the community through donations. There's furniture, tons of clothing, appliances, toys, electronics, tools, baby items, sporting goods, bikes, skis, artwork, housewares, linens, and much, much more," said VMS parent Sue Franciose, the organizer of the event.

The garage sale includes items donated by Vail Mountain School families and friends, and local stores Nest and Ritzy Recalls.

All unsold items will be donated to the Eagle Valley Community Rummage Sale in Minturn's Maloit Park later this year.
