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
