The Horsey Yard Sale in Newberry on Saturday is not just for horse stuff anymore.
Organizers of the fundraiser that benefits 4-H in Alachua County have decided to rent out stall spaces at the Alachua County Agriculture and Equestrian Center in Newberry to anyone wanting to sell horse tack or other items.
A $10 donation will get vendors two adjacent stalls, according to event organizer Suzanne Holton who has volunteered with local 4-H efforts for 30 years.
Holton said there are hundreds of newly renovated stalls at the fairgrounds that have new cement floors.
Holton’s shop Bits & Spurs Tack previously hosted the sale on Newberry Road, but the new venue lends itself to more space and more potential opportunities for sellers and buyers.
Holton said there is no need to make a reservation, just show up about 7:30 a.m. and sellers will be assigned a space to sell their wares.
Interested sellers can reach out to Holton at 352-472-0122 with any questions. She said whether it’s hot and sunny or raining out, the stalls will allow for a successful event.
The stalls have cement floors with a patio area and an overhang, Holton said, which means there will be shade if it’s hot out or cover in case of rain.
Holton’s shop will be having a big sale in conjunction with the 4-H sale where extra items will be discounted, she said. Proceeds of the sale will benefit Alachua County Bits & Spurs 4-H Club, which Holton ran for many years but now volunteers to help support.
The sale goes from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., sellers need to bring their own tables and there is more information available on Facebook.
