Best Bets May 1-3

The weekend weather looks great for yard sales, and the listings in The York Dispatch are thin, so we hope to see you at one of these.

INTRIGUING

  • A so-called “Sale of the Century” is set for 225 Elmwood Boulevard, and it will include “80+ years” of goodies. It’s rain or shine on Friday and Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.
  • Guys are sure to love the moving sale at 219 Irving Road. Its ad says there’s lawn mowers, tools and electronics up for grabs. The sale is 7 a.m. to noon Saturday only.

GROUP YARD SALES

  • The Wills Ford Community Yard Sale in Wiegelstown  promises 60 participants. The sale is Friday and Saturday, you can find this community behind the Weis Markets store on Route 74.
  • Wellington on the Greens Condos off of Nena Drive is hosting a multi-family sale 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
  • 16 families are participating in a group yard sale starting Thursday and continuing through Saturday. The Red Lion sales are off Manor Road.
  • Ashcombe Farms Community Sale is Friday and Saturday behind the Giant in Dover. It sounds like Dover is the place to go for yard-sale volume alone.

WHILE YOU’RE OUT

The U.M. Women are hosting their spring rummage and bake sale at the Winterstown Fire Hall. The highlight are some very tasty sounding ham & cheese pretzel roll sandwiches. If you’re somewhere on Route 24 South, it sounds like it will be worth a stop. The sale is Thursday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday 8 to noon.
