Annual yard sale draws big crowd

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -

It's true: One man's trash can be another man's treasure.

You certainly can't beat a good bargain at the annual Mose Avenue yard sale. 

Hundreds from around our community, even out-of-staters, drove up and down Moss for the 38th annual, two-plus mile sale.

It's plenty more than rubbish, with antiques, collectibles, neat crafts, food vendors and live music all wrapped up in one.

One couple selling their wares of benches and coat racks came up from Decatur, saying the profit they see goes towards a good cause.

"Our phrase is re-purposing with a purpose and the purpose is to minister to others. We very rarely make money outside of sending me on missions trips," said Michelle Traster.  

For her sales Saturday, Traster will be taking a trip to Haiti.           

To make this event possible, residents who live on Moss Avenue open up their yards to the public.
