Surprises for Sellers and Shoppers!
The Thurman 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 on over.

Services available:

MAPS: Maps 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.

You may make only local calls or credit card calls..
