SNOWFLAKE

The Standard Journal - - LO­CAL -

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.
