Downtown yard sale event repeated after successful turnout

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Rummage on the Rails was such a success the first time, Main Street Paragould decided to host another. 

The first Rummage on the Rails was in June and after seeing a great turnout the event was held again on Saturday. 

"The vendors are having a lot of success and selling a lot of items so we're excited," Main Street Paragould Board Member Andrew Jercinovic said. 

The event allows people to bring unwanted items from their home and sell them on the streets of Downtown Paragould. 

Members of Main Street Paragould, which is an organization to help revitalize and restore downtown, thought this was a good way to get the community together downtown and maybe make a buck or two. 

Many vendors stayed up late Friday night preparing for the hot day ahead of them.

The vendors set up around 7 a.m., and sold items until around noon. 

While many vendors were there to make some money, a lot of them enjoyed the social aspect as well. 

"We had a really good turn out and just enjoyed being out here, meeting new people, seeing everybody," owner of Mosaic Salon Brent Oglesby said. 

Members of Main Street Paragould said this will now be a regular event for the city.

 "We are going to do this every other month, in our season where it is nice weather where people want to walk and do yard sales and things like that," Jercinovic said. 

Main Street Paragould was also selling drinks along with rummage items to the shoppers.

Jercinovic said sales they make from this event will help fund other projects they have planned like the Arts and Music Fest. 

The next Rummage on the Rails will be held in October.
