The lights first went up in the late 1970s and were used for decades as holiday decorations along light poles in Rockmart. They were replaced in 2014.
During the late November Downtown Rockmart Advisory Committee meeting last week, they worked out pricing and availability for the Snowflake lights.
Prices are one each for $100 and 2 for $175 in as-is condition. They’ll be sold at the Rockmart City Complex.
The lights themselves aren’t small, and those interested should bring a truck to pick one up. They measure 76 inches by 75 inches.
Those interested in seeing examples of the lights can stop by the old Hometown Realty office on South Marble Street, the Silver Comet Trailhead office, or Now and Then on East Church Street.
Anyone interested in reserving a snowflake before the Friday sale on a first come, first serve basis can contact Elrod at the Chamber at [email protected] polkgeorgia.com, or by calling 678-883-9255.
Snowflake lights which used to decorate the city during the holidays are a piece of Rockmart history available for purchase this Friday.
