Treasures Found, Sold at Lake Isle Yard Sale

EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – The parking lot at Lake Isle was packed this Sunday even though the pool has been closed for a month.

Instead of swimmies and suntan lotion, the lot was filled with the contents of attics and garages at the third annual town yard sale.

Sponsored by County Legislator Sheila Marcotte (R-Eastchester), the profits from the event go directly to both the Eastchester and Tuckahoe Beautification Committee.

"This is a great way for people to clear out their houses and raise money for themselves and for our town," Marcotte said.

This year approximately 55 vendors, some town folk, and others professional vendors, participated.

"So far, it looks like the committees will get about $1,200 each," Marcotte said. "Now I am going to go look and see what I can buy for my own house."

Lorretta Cirrincione of the Tuckahoe Beautification Committee said the money goes towards supplying and maintaining hanging flower baskets and small gardens throughout the village, among other projects.

"We have won awards for our design of flower baskets that we hang on light polls below the American flag," Cirrincione said.

One of the vendors were the Mariani family of Eastchester who went through their house, packed up what they wanted to sell and brought it over to Lake Isle for their first garage sale.

Lauren Mariani, 20, said it didn’t take her very long to go through her clothes and jewelry.

"The hardest part was organizing things and pricing," she said.

Lauren's dad, Angelo, said he was not sure what they would do with the items that did not sell.

"Maybe we will pack it all back up and bring it home and have our second garage sale," he said.

But Lauren had different ideas.

"Anything I don't sell I am either going to give to friends or donate to Goodwill," she said.
