MOULTRIE — Anyone looking to make a treasure out of another person’s extra items will have the opportunity to do so Saturday, March 13.

City of Moultrie Main Street Director Amy Johnson said the Downtown Bazaar will be held from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. March 13 on the courthouse square. The bazaar, formerly known as the Downtown Yard Sale, allows people to buy or sell goods in a large-scale setting.

“What the bazaar does is give citizens a way to sell goods in an event that attracts a large amount of people,” Johnson said.

For those interested in selling items, Johnson said there are about 100 spots available on the square to set up and sell items. The spaces can be reserved for $25 for a 12-foot by 12-foot space or $30 for a 12-foot by 30-foot space.

Sign-ups are currently under way for space, and Johnson said a map and registration form are available at her office on North Main Street or by visiting the Downtown Moultrie Web site at Registration forms with a space number preference can be brought to the office or mailed in.

This year’s bazaar is making a few changes based on concerns from previous year’s events, Johnson said. The sale of live animals will not be allowed this year, and there will be no on-site food preparation. Any food prepared and served on the square that day has been contracted out to a downtown restaurant.

Johnson said another concern has been people who fail to sell large items during the bazaar. Anyone who brings a large item that does not sell needs to be prepared to take it off site once the bazaar is over.

The bazaar is an opportunity to clean out the attic, closets and garage and sell items no longer needed, Johnson said.

“Always remember that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” Johnson said.
