A big yard sale will be held at the old Sell house in Cooleemee. It is being held in preparation for a ěHouse Raffleî sponsored by the Cooleemee Historical Association. It is located at 105 Joyner Street, at the corner of Marginal Street in Cooleemee.
The yard sale will begin at 9 a.m. on Wednesday and again at 9 a.m. Saturday. The home belonged to J.C. ěBudî and Maxine A. Sell. “Bud” passed away in 2003 and Maxine in 2008. They are missed by their hometown. The Sell family published the Cooleemee Journal newspaper from 1906 until it was sold to the Hurley family, publishers of the Salisbury Post.
On the property sits the historic Cooleemee Journal office and items will be sold from its contents as well. The House Raffle will end when a thousand tickets are sold at $100 each and there will be an ěEarly Birdî drawing when 500 tickets are sold. Ticket sales will be conducted on the Internet through www.CooleemeeHouseRaffle.com. The raffle will begin soon.
