2007 Stadium Sale will be bigger than ever

It's one of the area's best yard sales ever - The Citadel Women's Club will hold its annual Stadium Sale from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 26 at the Altman Center in the end zone at Johnson Hagood Stadium on Hagood Avenue at Fishburne Street.

Members of The Citadel Women's Club volunteer their time for several weeks each year to get ready for the annual Stadium Sale. The Altman Center is filled with this year's merchandise.

"It is definitely going to be bigger than ever," said John Carter, who heads Health, Exercise and Sport Science and volunteers to help supply and run the yard sale.

"We have received many donations from the community as well as Citadel folks and cadets," Carter said. "We are hoping for a good turnout."

Need cleaning supplies or sundry items but don't like the supermarket prices? The Stadium Sale has everything from spray starch and window cleaner to shaving cream and body wash.

Is your iron on the fritz? Coffee maker go kaput? The Stadium Sale has many gently used ones to choose from.

Children's toys fill table after table for this year's yard sale.

Just as in year's past, the 2007 yard sale will also feature linens, draperies and window treatments, clothing, shoes, books, appliances like a dishwasher and clothes dryer and loads of computer hardware and other related items.

There are lamps, sleeper sofas, shutters, sporting equipment, school supplies, video tapes, CDs, office supplies, electric fans, holiday decorations, china and kitchen wares, and objects d' art, luggage, tools, toys, radios, coffee makers and tables too.

The Annual Stadium Sale was started 12 years ago when it was noticed that cadets discarded many useable items at the end of each academic year.

From coffee makers to irons to towels and T-shirts, cadets throw away the darndest things when they leave campus each spring. Thankfully, many donate their cast offs to The Citadel Women's Club Stadium Sale. Money from the sale goes to support cadet scholarships.
Every year people line up early for the sale, but no early birds please. Proceeds from the Stadium Sale go to scholarships for Citadel cadets.
