EVART — More than 200 area residents stopped by the Osceola League for Arts and Humanities annual Labor Day yard sale on Saturday and Sunday held at Four Seasons Rentals on U.S. 10 west of Evart.

Shoppers enjoyed browsing through practical everyday items and a wide variety of toys, books, games, clothing, linens, craft supplies, jewelry, pottery, furniture, figurines and collectibles — all donated by league members and supporters.

“This is the first year I’ve been to the OLAH sale,” said Janice Young of Evart. “I’m glad I came because the prices are reasonable and there’s a lot to choose from. I’m glad too that the money goes to help OLAH and our artists.”

Helen Burhans from Reed City came with her husband and children.

“My son likes to draw and I just like to support OLAH and see what interesting things I can find here,” she said.

“This is our third annual OLAH Labor Day weekend yard sale,” said league secretary Renee Tolgo. “All the proceeds are used to support our activities and projects. We really appreciate all the folks who stopped by and all the items donated by our members and everybody who wanted to help out by giving us things to sell.”

Tolgo also expressed appreciation for league members who volunteered their time to organize the merchandise, set up displays, greet visitors, answer questions and help shoppers with their purchases.

“We have a lot of members who pitch in and help with our activities and we thank them all for their hard work,” she added.

The Osceola League for Arts and Humanities studio and gift shop featuring creations by local artists is at 207 N. Main St., Evart. The league sponsors a number of programs throughout the year as well as classes in painting, drawing, mosaics and many others. For further information, contact Renee Tolgo (231) 388-5749.
