In addition to the fixed priced items that will be sold, there will be a silent auction process conducted for all laptops and any other items the County feels should be included.  For the silent auction, patrons will place their name, address and phone number, along with their bid for the item, in the box adjacent to the item.  At the end of the sale for each item, the high bidder will be determined for each item and the winners will be notified by phone.  All winners must collect and pay for their items by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30at the County’s Administration building in Defuniak Springs.

Items that will be sold at the yard sale include items that the county has surplused that are no longer used or needed by the County, as well as items that are collected through the County’s recycling program at the landfill.

This yard sale will mark the first time that the County has had a fixed price sale.  In addition to the County’s ongoing public auction program, the yard sale will give the County an additional to opportunity to offer their surplus items to the public for purchase.

In addition to the yard sale, the County’s Animal Control department will have pets on site for adoption.  This will give the public the opportunity to adopt animals that need a home as well as get information from Animal Control specialists about the County’s shelter and adoption process.
