Best bets for June 10-11

Posted by on June 9, 2011 in Best bets, For buyers, For sellers, Forecast, Tips

Lots of yard sales this weekend … lots of group yard sales in particular. We love multi-family sales.

From a practical standpoint as a seller, it totally make sense to piggyback onto someone else’s sale: More traffic, more money — or at least more of a chance for money. It’s also a heckuva lot more fun to hold a yard sale when you can visit with neighbors throughout the day.

As a buyer, it’s nice to have several sales in one general area — cuts down on driving time. And a seller at one yard sale will often guide a buyer to a neighbor’s sale if the neighbor has the item the buyer is looking for. (did that make sense?)

OK, enough chat. Onto this weekend’s best bets:


  • Manchester’s Cold Springs Apartments is holding its annual sale Saturday only starting at 7 a.m. Take Main Street to Park Street.
  • Glen Rock’s got a huge multi-family sale at 1755 Church St. Friday and Saturday from 8 until whenever.
  • South Branch Estates in  New Oxford is holding its sale today and Friday starting at 8 a.m. Set your GPS for 288 Drummer Drive.
  • The condos at Wrightsville’s Cool Creek Golf Course are the location for a multi-family moving sale Friday and Saturday from 8-6 p.m.
  • A four-day large sale in Spring Grove, at 242 N. Main St. across from old Best Chevrolet, features lots of stuff, including a 75-gallon fish tank. This one started Wednesday and runs through Sunday.
  • Manchester Township’s Out Door Country Club area has a sale on Sherry Drive Friday and Saturday from 8-2 p.m.
  • In the city, St. Paul EC/Iglesia Christiana Church on West King has a Saturday-only sale from 8-4 p.m.
  • Also in the city, Calvary UM Church on North Richland has a Saturday-only sale from 8-4 p.m. as well.
  • In the southern end of the county, near New Park, is a multi-family sale at 486 Davis Road (off Woolen Mill Road) Friday and Saturday as well as NEXT Friday and Saturday.
  • Shrewsbury Assembly of God on North Main Street has an indoor/outdoor sale Friday and Saturday.

  • A multi-family sale at 575 Butter Road in Dover has Barbie collectibles and dance costumes. This might be the sale we’ve gone to in past years with a garage full of Barbie stuff. We’ll check it out.
  • A multi-family sale on Plank Road between Shrewsbury and Stewartstown offers fishing lures and bows, hunting supplies, ax and sledgehammer handles and horse tack. It’s Saturday from 8-3 p.m.
  • An antique estate sale on Stonewood Road in East York today and Friday offers lots of stuff, including an old beer barrel. Neat.
  • A Windsor Township sale at 1235 Golden Way Friday and Saturday has everything from NASCAR items to PEZ.
  • DIYers might want to check out the Wellington Greens sale through Friday that offers a radial arm saw, mitre saw, electric edger and gas trimmer. This one is at 1415 Setter Run, off Taxville Road, in West Manchester Township.


A Thursday-Friday sale at 255 Blymire Road in York Township has a Thomas train, Hess truck, GI Joe books,  AE and Hollister clothes, Little Tikes toy/book shelf and a Cranium Fort Set.  Reads like a Christmas list.


Friday should still be pretty warm, with a high of 92 and partly sunny. Might want to keep a cooler of drinks at the ready. Saturday is a bit more temperate: Only 85 and overcast. Could be a nice day to walk around at sales.
