Starting this week, Coupeville Lions are setting up what’s advertised as the “biggest and best” garage sale.

It’s the club’s largest fundraiser of the year.

The sale is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 29 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 30 at Coupeville Elementary School on South Main Street.

The sale is held each June.

“There are 25 sections we set up for display,” said Julian Sayres, project co-chair.

While the sale only lasts a weekend, the club works on the project year-round. Members collect items including furniture, toys, Christmas items, kitchen tools, jewelry and more.

Members typically fill four barns in the months leading up to the event.

Historically, the sale nets the club between $30,000 to $40,000, money that is returned to the community through the Lions Club’s charitable projects.

Popular items typically include tools and furniture, said Sayres.

“The power tools this year are in pretty good shape,” he said. “There’s also a nice entertainment center.”

The sale will also include collectibles and jewelry.

Preview hours are noon to 6 p.m. Friday, June 28.
