Best Bets May 16-17

Yikes! The weekend weather looks more than a little horrifying for yard sale fanatics. Heavy rain and a thunderstorm on Friday. The good news is things are looking up on Saturday. In Thursday’s newspaper, there was nearly half of page devoted to yard sales. We can only hope they survive the Friday deluge.

COMMUNITY SALES

We counted 12 community yard sales this weekend, here are the highlights:

  • Shrewsbury area – Find deals along Cardinal, Clearview, Raypaula, Skyview and Westview drives. Friday and Saturday.
  • Aslan Heights – Off Greenbriar and Church Roads north of Route 30. Saturday only.
  • Little Creek Farms -- Off Bull Run, 2. 5 miles from Route 30. Friday and Saturday.
  • Jewel sales — Look for sales at Emerald, Opal, Topaz and (skipping the theme) Gabriel streets off Route 74 and then Brougher Road. Friday and Saturday.
  • Chestnut Valley development – At the corner of Board Road and Chestnut Street in Mount Wolf. Friday and Saturday.
  • Spring Meadows development – From Susquehanna Trail, turn on Stillmeadow Lane to Church Road. Friday and Saturday.
  • West York – Look for sales in the Philadelphia Street and Bannister Street area. Saturday only.
  • Old East York – Take the East Market Street exit off of 83 and then turn from there on to one of many streets including N. Vernon, Wallac, North Rockburn and Harlan. Friday and Saturday.

  • Red Lion area – Sales at Larking and Pauline Drive. Thursday through Saturday.
  • Cedar Ridge – On Gora Road off Greenbriar Road. Friday and Saturday.
  • Springwood development – No streets listed — not a smart move. Maybe you know where it is? If you do, go Friday or Saturday.

Well, if that’s not enough to keep you busy, we don’t know what is. OK, fine! Here’s a few more highlights!

SOUNDS INTERESTING

  • Looking for some antique clocks? How about some watches. A sale at 2067 Mount Zion Road promises an abundance of timepieces. Thursday and Friday.

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.
