MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

The Urban Arts Center known as Abiding Village will not get to call the old Freestyle Music Park home, at least for now.

The center tried to raise ten million dollars in just the three weeks they were given by the property's current owners to come up with money.

Abiding Village held a yard sale all day Saturday afternoon.

As of 1:20 on Saturday afternoon, their website listed the total at $155,789.82.

Abiding Village representatives said they were still hopeful that somehow they would still be able to buy the land in the future.

The non-profit wanted to expand their current studio into a whole village of shops, stores, restaurants and schools that focused on urban arts.

To find out more about this program, go to http://www.abidingvillage.org/.
