Best Bets for May 8-10

Posted by on May 8, 2014 in Best bets

The weekend weather looks a little dicey for yard sales with a chance of rain on Friday and Saturday. In Thursday’s newspaper, there was a quarter of page devoted to yard sales, so there’s plenty to choose from.

COMMUNITY YARD SALES

From our count, there were seven community yard sales listed. They are

  • Sage Hill Development -- Off Camp Betty Washington Road on Friday and Saturday.
  • Glades Auction Parking Lot -- Off Druck Valley Road. Saturday only.
  • Jefferson – With a “huge sale” highlighted at Starlite Drive. Friday and Saturday.
  • Woodmont Estates, Brandywine Crossings and Hearthridge – Take Susquehanna Trail North to Woodmont Drive in York. Saturday only.
  • Washington Square Development – Toward Hellam on 462 and on to Silver Spur Drive. Friday and Saturday.
  • Kennard-Dale High School – In the school parking lot in Fawn Grove. Saturday only.
  • Andover Neighborhood – Off Route 74, past Weigelstown Elementary School. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

SOUNDS INTERESTING

  • If you’re willing to drive out to the Hanover area, a McSherrystown sale at 2404 Centennial Drive is the “first time yard sale” with a “lifetime collection” of items including comics, LPs, books and collectibles.
  • A sale at 700 Ridgelyn Drive in Dallastown has jewelry, milk bottles, records and an old Victrola.
  • For the kids, 1270 Golden Way near Wisehaven in York has “tons of toys.”
  • And the girls out there might be interested in Barbies and Polly Pockets being sold at 517 Dakota Drive in Red Lion.
  • If you’re a cowboy or an outdoorsman, you can get suited up quite well at a sale at 373 Deer Road in Fawn Grove.
