I Heart the Remington College Shreveport Campus Community Garage Sale! My heart has been with Remington College for many years as a faculty member. I experienced my first Remington garage sale last fall. I didn’t realize how much fun the sale would be and made a lot of money selling pre-loved items too. My Mom came and helped me that day. Poor Momma got a sunburn on her ears. I will make sure to have a tent this spring! I Heart the Remington College Shreveport Campus Community Garage Sale because it provides great community outreach, it is a fun event with a parking lot full of deals!
Take a look at Remington Shreveport’s Facebook Page and you will see many examples of events that reach out to the local community. The Garage Sale is a great example of one of their events that impacts the Southern Hills area. Remington College is a caring campus that also provides quality education programs such as Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Electronic Technology, Medical Assisting and Pharmacy Technology. Many of the students live in Shreveport and Bossier, but also has students who drive daily from as far as Mansfield, Louisiana and Waskom, Texas! The campus must be doing something right to have students willing to make the drive. Remington College Shreveport provides great community outreach both to its internal customers, the students, and to the Ark-La-Tex as a whole.
Life is too short to not have fun! Anyone who has hosted a garage sale knows how much work is involved. The list includes gathering inventory, sorting, boxing, displaying, advertising and promoting. At least the promoting part for this sale is handled by Remington College’s Business Department Lead, Cindy Robertson! She advertises the event in the Shreveport Times, various websites and on Facebook. As a business professional, she knows how to bring out the customers! That part can be marked off the to-do list. The part I truly enjoy is talking to the customers who walk through the parking lot. Many of my friends or my Mom’s friends came to the sale in the fall last year. We had lots of good conversations which made the time fly by! The Remington Garage Sale is a fun event for the vendors and especially the attendees!
The Remington parking lot is fairly large and I’m excited to announce that every space has been reserved for the Spring Sale on Saturday, April 9th! Mark the date on your calendar. You don’t want to miss this event. I was in aww last fall how the parking lot was transformed into an outdoor Bazaar! Vehicles are not allowed on the parking lot that day. That provides tons of square footage for appliances, beds, chairs, decorations, electronics… You name it; it will probably be sold that day! Heart Gates Vineyard is partnering with Blue Hawg BBQ to offer pulled pork sandwiches during the event. Eight Dollar Early Bird tickets are available for purchase on our website. Plates will be $10 the day of the event. Buy your tickets early! As I said, almost everything will be available that day – even Education! The Campus will be open for tours. This event is a must for anyone who enjoys garage sales or flea markets because so many vendors will be available in one place offering awesome deals!
Mark your calendar, invite a friend, clean out your vehicle and pack the sunscreen because you’re going to load up on good deals, awesome BBQ and a great time. I Heart the Remington College Shreveport Campus Community Garage Sale and I know many others in our community who do as well! The community outreach, fun experience, and a parking lot of deals makes the Remington College Shreveport Campus Community Garage Sale a true asset to our community! Check back in two weeks for my next trip around town to see if your favorite place is featured. Until then, Salute!
