A town-wide yard sale? Holy brilliant!
That is right up my alley. Who thought of this concept? I want to meet them. Yesterday my little town filled up the park with tents, tables, and totally kitschy housewares. You can’t really tell from these photos because the park slopes downward toward the water, so most of the tents are out of view, but look at all of those cars! The turn-out was great. I just wish I had spent more time there!
Two police officers on duty in this sleepy New England town? That’s a big event! A month or so ago I tried to call in a dog that was roaming around in front of our apartment, thinking that it might be lost. Getting ahold of a police officer was actually incredibly difficult! I mean, I’m not dissing the town – if it were a real emergency I would have called 911 – it’s just such a sign of how rural this part of New Hampshire is. I called and the phone just rang and rang and rang. I hung up and called again a little while later and pressed some button to be sent to the dispatcher who then told me that the officer on duty was out on a call and he’d swing by my part of town after he’d finished up where he was. Charming?
I never see this many people in the center of town so I love the idea of a town-wide yard sale. It’s such a great way to bring the whole community together and made for some great thrift shopping! There was so much to see, and I barely got a chance to check it out because I was on my way into work. We did, however, catch some of the leftovers that were still around today, so that was worth it! Maybe next summer we’ll get to make an afternoon of it!
Have you ever heard of a town-wide yard sale?
