It’s time to empty those piggy banks and start shopping today at Programming Council’s garage sale in front of Frog Fountain.Kit Lipscomb, a member of Programming Council, said the organization will host Frog Market in an effort to make it TCU’s largest garage sale with live music and free food.
The event is open to anyone who would like to come and will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., said Lipscomb, a sophomore international communication and Spanish major.
Lipscomb said 21 applications have been turned in by students and faculty members. Paintings, cultural items, shoes and handbags are just a few of the items that will be up for sale.
Elaine Martinez, who works in Financial Services, is participating in the Frog Market to gain exposure for her products and personal business.
“At the event, I will be selling jewelry made from either stones or beads and Mary Kay products,” Martinez said.
Daisy Delgado, a member of Sigma Lambda Alpha, said her sorority is anticipating being involved in this event.
“Last semester we had a rummage sale downtown to raise money for our sorority and we hope we can do the same at the TCU garage sale,” said the sophomore social work major.
Delgado also said Frog Market will be beneficial because her sorority will be able to get name recognition and spend quality time with the TCU community.
Lipscomb said food and entertainment will be available for participants, as well as students who don’t necessarily want to shop at the garage sale.
“The live music by Baby Woodstock and the free food, catered by Buffalo Wild Wings, is enough of an incentive to come to this event,” Lipscomb said.
