More shopping than usual took place Saturday in Cuero. Two events, the Keep Cuero Beautiful City-Wide Garage Sale and the Main Street Program Shop the Blocks event, brought Cuero residents outside and to the park and downtown for a shopping fix. Thirty-eight booth spaces were reserved at the park pavilion and 13 stores downtown participated in the event.
 
Linda Smith, a vendor at the park, said she used the sale as an opportunity to clean out her home.
 
“My husband and I spent all week clearing out our garage and attic and we just made a small dent,” Smith said. “We have everything that can come out of household – kitchen items to clothing, Christmas, seasonal decorations, just everything.”
