Best bets for July 26-27

Wow, is this July? Almost had to turn the heater on in the car on the way to work this morning. I said almost.

Friday looks just as lovely for yard-salers.  But we get a chance of rain on Saturday, so be forewarned.  Check the weekend forecast here.

This weekend, here are our top picks:

  • This is the big Rinely yard sale weekend, when the ENTIRE VILLAGE OF RINELY YARD SALE is held Saturday. Ad says “Sales for 1 mile. Food and drink along the way.” This is a big sale. And a tad crazy, but worth it.
  • Another ad that intrigues us: a “YARD OF BARGAINS” at 36 Jean Lo Way in Springettsbury Township Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. This one features back to college/school items and “hidden treasures.” Hmmm.
  • While you’re on that end of town, check out the sale at 1170 Witmer Road from 8-6 on Saturday. This one has lots of power tools and kids’ stuff.
  • The 400 block of Hykes Mill Road and Cemetery Road off the Susquehanna Trail is holding a yard sale today through Saturday from 8-4:30.
  • If you’re going to Dutch Days in Hanover, swing by The Evening Sun building at 135 Baltimore St., where there’s a multi-family yard sale Saturday from 8 a.m.

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?

Best bets for July 12-13

Here we are in the thick of the yard sale season – thick being the operative word, given these thunderstorms and their subsequent residual humidity. Looks like this weekend has much of the same in store, weather-wise.

Might be a good idea to have a tarp at the ready, to cover your wares in case of downpour. But then again, we might get no rain at all. That’s the beauty of July in Pennsylvania. Like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Check the forecast here.

This weekend features lots of multi-family or community sales. Here’s a sampling of what looks good to us.

  • South Wood Hills in Dallastown holds a large community yard sale Friday and Saturday from 8 to 3 p.m. This one has antiques, too.
  • In the Dover area, there’s a two-road community yard sale Saturday starting at 8 a.m. This one is at Blue Hill School Road and Winding Road.
  • Don’t worry about the rain – go to the East Berlin Area Community Center’s indoor yard sale today through Saturday.  Fill a bag for $10 today, $5 Friday or $3 Saturday.
  • In East York, there’s a community yard sale at Starview Heights (Chambers Road to Candlelight Drive ) Friday and Saturday. There’s hunting and fishing stuff PLUS a 2002 Buick LeSabre for sale!
  • This one wins most intriguing: Pay anything you want for everything you see! A garage sale with a twist, as the ad says. It’s at 365 Locust Point Road in Stewartstown. Interesting.

Best bets for June 28-29

Lots of possibilities this weekend for yard-salers, who might want to keep an umbrella handy.

The weather report calls for much of the same as we’ve had this week, so that means a storm could come at any point. Check the full forecast here.

If you’re going out, here’s where we think the pickins’ look good:

  •  Let’s start up north…This Friday and Saturday are the Goldsboro Community Yard Sale days, starting at 7 a.m. It’s community wide, so just go to Goldsboro and you can’t miss it.
  • In Winterstown is a large multi-family garage sale Thursday and Friday next to Hake’s Feed Store.
  • It’s Stewartstown’s community yard sale Friday and Saturday from 8-3 at Lee Street, Hershey Circle and Charles Avenue.
  • In York City, a giant yard sale is at  1035 Philadelphia St. Saturday and Sunday starting at 7 a.m.
  • Interesting one in East York for all teachers: A “retiring primary teacher yard sale” is Friday only at 2034 Eastern Blvd. All proceeds benefit Olivia’s House.
  • Looking to beat the heat? Christian School of York is having an indoor yard sale Saturday from 7-1.
  • It’s the Fireside neighborhood yard sale Friday and Saturday starting at 8 both days. Fireside is off Route 30 in York City.

There’s plenty more sales in The York Dispatch classifieds. Take a look here.

Best bets for June 14-15

It’s going to be a great weekend for yard sales. York County’s forecast calls for lots of sun and warm temperatures. Perfect for getting out and looking at other people’s stuff, or selling your own.

Here’s our best bets for this weekend:

  • The “one day only sale” at 275 Edgewood Road in Penn Oaks on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. has the typical stuff — ladies clothing, boys clothing, books and home decor. We are just wondering what “Possible Dream santas” are.
  • A multi-family sale at 2870 Forrest Lane in Haines Acres on Saturday from 8 to 3. The ad says they have cleaned out “YEARS of antiques and collecting.” They’re promising mantle clocks, oil lamp, pottery and the ever-popular “so much more.” For the love of Pete, just tell us another item or two!
  • The Edgewood Park community yard sale in Dover Township will be held today through Saturday starting at 8 a.m. The sale is located between Davidsburg Road and Canal Road.
  • The town of Emigsville will be holding a community yard sale on Friday and Saturday from 8 to 2 each day. There will be a chicken BBQ on Saturday from 11 to 2 at the Band Hall.
  • A sale at 309 Shafta Drive in Arlington Park on Saturday from 9 to 3 will be a good one for the men who love yard sales. It features hunting, fishing and dirt bike equipment, bikes, stereo equipment and truck tires. That’s a whole lotta man, indeed!
