QUESTION: The senior center in Thousand Oaks usually has a spring community garage sale. Do you know if it is planned again for this year?

ANSWER: Yes, it is. The ninth annual community garage sale is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9 in the parking lot at Goebel Adult Community Center, 1385 E. Janss Road in Thousand Oaks.

Past events have had 40 to 60 vendors selling almost everything you can think of. So if you are in a buying need, put this date on your calendar.

On the other hand, if you are tired of looking at your overfilled garage or don’t have space to hold our own garage sale, sign up to be one of the vendors.

Spaces are $30, and applications are available at the Goebel Center. Tables are also available for rent at $5 each or you can provide your own.

There is a limit of one table per space.

Here is a chance to do your spring cleaning and make a few dollars doing it. Don’t wait too long, as spaces do go quickly.
