Best bets for July 19-20
Anyone who’s spent the last several days prepping to hold a yard sale this weekend, we salute you. It’s been hotter than blue blazes, and we’re not going to see much relief until at least Sunday.
So prepare for a hot time selling this weekend. Check the forecast here.
Lots of good yard sales in the Dispatch classifieds. Here’s our suggestions:
- Pine Springs Community Yard Sale near Shrewsbury is Friday and Saturday starting at 7 a.m. From Fenton glass to military items, this one says it has something for everyone. GPS 111 Farmview Drive.
- An estate sale at 300 Old Orchard Lane (off South Queen, behind the Dairy Queen), features 40-plus years worth of stuff Saturday and Sunday 8-4 p.m. This one sounds great based on the ad: “Hey Macklemore, we’ve got granddad’s clothes! Plus this gem, which we encourage all yard-salers to use: “Early birds pay double.”
- Sunset Terrace in Dallastown is holding its 31st annual development yard sale Friday and Saturday. Parents of college kids: this one has dorm stuff.
- A multi-family yard sale at 105 Steinfelt Road in Red Lion bills itself as “humongous.” And warns: “NO early birds.” (Ah, we love a yard-saler who can take charge.)
- In East York, the Crestwood East Neighborhood Yard Sale is Friday and Saturday 8-4 p.m. More than 21 houses. Ad says: “DO NOT MISS OUT!”
- We like this idea: A patio yard sale is being held Friday and Saturday 7-4 p.m. at 2445 Hepplewhite Drive in the ODCC area. We’ve heard of garage yard sales, but a patio setting is a new one. Kinda classy, huh?
