Ahoy Mateys! It's Time to 'Pillage the Village'

2nd Annual Bargain Hunters Bonanza at GCC's College Village

Batavia, NY- There’s bounty to be had at the second annual Pillage the Village “Yarrr-d” Sale at College Village behind the Batavia campus of Genesee Community College on Thursday, May 9, 2013. From 11 am - 5 pm, you’ll be able to fill your coffers with treasures and bounty plundered from student dorms. The event will be held rain or shine.

The lawn sale will feature a trunk load of household goods, galley items and other articles the students no longer need as they clean out their “shanties” at the end of the semester. There will be no hornswoggling (cheating), or patrons and pirates might find themselves facing keelhaul and walking the plank. Cash or doubloons (gold coins) will be gratefully accepted in exchange for the booty! No credit cards mateys!

“Pillage the Village lawn sale is a terrific way to pass along some highly-useable items at great prices,” said Shannon Scheening, Graduate Assistant of College Village. “It’s also a green event because by recycling these items, it keeps them out of our landfills!”

College Village is located at 8170 Batavia-Stafford Townline Rd., Batavia, NY 14020.
