Ever been to a Yart Sale?
No, I didn't forget to check my spellchecker I spelled it right, (at least that word lol). I have always loved treasure hunting, and in the spring, summer and fall, where I live you can do this most any weekend. It's called various things in different parts of the USA, tag sale, garage sale, yard sale, and more. The theme is the same though, to clear out your house of items you have grown tired of, no longer need or use but more basically it is about making room. This is the idea behind the Yart Sale. It is basically for artists who have a new line to introduce and need to make room for these new items, and the shopper becomes the winner!
It combines the two words, Yard and Art = YART Sale! Many artists and museums use this event to raise money and clear space for more ART~!
So join me won't you? check out all three of my stores, which for this event will have a special section with items listed that are anywhere from 10% - 25% off~! Start your holiday shopping early, or reward yourself or someone you love, 'just because'.
The Yart Sale at etsy starts today and ends on Sunday June 14th. (Note my shops will be closed on Shabbat (Friday evening to Sat evening) so please do your shopping before or after).
Each item will have this logo within the listing. There are many shops participating, to find out more all you need to do is to go to this etsy.com forum and look each day for the official thread titled “SECOND ANNUAL YART SALE sponsored by Team ESST – June 10th, 2009”. The Yart Sale is hosted by the ESST Team of Etsy.
Be sure to check out all my shops to see what cool art bargains you can pick up as well as some vintage stuff!

And remember, it's virtual, so you don't have to spend any money on gasoline, or worry about hot, humid weather, or rain cancellation! So, go, Have fun shopping!
