Surprises for Sellers and
Townwide Sale is always a fun-filled weekend, with lots of surprises
for sellers and shoppers alike. Sellers are always amazed at all the
"stuff" they find stashed away once they begin their spring
cleaning, and how many items they can put out for explorers at the annual
sale. There are household items, tools, toys, vehicles, boats, plants,
clothing, crafts, musical instruments, antiques and collectibles--you
just never know what you will find. Once in a while sellers and shoppers
alike are surprised by inclement weather, but we always make an effort
to continue the sale no matter what Mother Nature dishes out, so come
will be distributed at the sales nearest the borders of town. Follow
pink arrows to find the sites. One will also be posted here about
one week before the sale.

your cell phone (we all have our favorite spots: near the top of Sky
