WALESKA — Those looking for bargains might just find them next weekend at the local university.

The Reinhardt University Collegiate Chapter of Music Teachers National Association is sponsoring an indoor yard sale Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event will be held in the Falany Performing Arts Center on Reinhardt’s campus.

Hundreds of items including furniture, clothing, jewelry, shoes, books, records, linens, domestic and decorative items will be sold at “ridiculously low prices.”

Items are donated by Reinhardt students, faculty and staff, and community members.

“We want to sell everything,” said Christopher Lawhorne, co-president for the Reinhardt chapter. “If you see something you want and the price is too high, make an offer.

“The purpose of the yard sale is to raise funds for the music students to attend the Georgia Music Teachers Association State Conference at Young Harris College in November and for service projects and concert attendance planned throughout the year,” Lawthorne said. “The more funds we can raise, the more students we can send to represent Reinhardt at the State Conference. Please come out and support our chapter.”

The Reinhardt chapter is a featured Collegiate Chapter on the MTNA website and is active on the campus and in the community.

The chapter’s other events and philanthropic activities include performing an annual comedy recital, filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, performing and visiting at nursing homes, sponsoring a year-end cookout for all music majors and music faculty, and attending off-campus concerts and music events.

Those who have something to donate for Reinhardt’s CMTNA yard sale can contact Susan Naylor, associate professor of music and chapter advisor, at (770) 720-5560.
