Ways To Save And Earn Extra Cash At Kingswood

Ways To Save And Earn Extra Cash At Kingswood

When it comes to bargain shopping, Debbie Horlyk is an expert. She's has been coming to the Kingswood Rummage sale for the past 20 years.

"I've bought dressers and such, I mean you can go to the store and pay a couple hundred dollars and such and here you can spend $50 or less," Horlyk said.

"We are participating in the annual Kingswood Rummage Sale and we have a food stand that we have done annually for about 8 years now," Robyn Arens said.

Along with your typical rummage sale items, Arens is selling lunch and snack items for hungry shoppers.

"People come back every year and they know our location and they come back just to get lunch at this point since we have done it so long," Arens said.

Every year they need to get permission from the city.

"Go through the city to get a temporary food service permit and they come out and inspect your food stand. And you have to follow all the food services rule. But we draw in a large crowd and we have a lot of customers that come back every year," Arens said.

And even for running a food service business in her garage there's still quite a selection of items to choose from.

"Standard hotdogs and brats and we have a couple different hot dogs for kids too. And cotton candy, popcorn and nachos and other than that prepackaged chips," Arens said.

It takes a few days of planning along with the help of her family.

"It's worth it. We have to take time off work of course and we have family that help out. It takes at least three people to run it when you are cooking food on the grill," Arens said.

In the end they come away with a big chunk of change.

"Around $1,000 but it just depends on the year and the weather and how everything goes. The weather is a big part of it." Arens said.

Robyn’s concession stand is located near 40th St. and South Greenwood Ave.
