Only once a year a very special indoor (so it can be held no matter how much snow falls;-) sale occurs in Frederick, MD. Many residents of Crestwood Village, an over 55 friendly community, gather to sell their treasured items on (now get this) over 30 TABLES!!! To list all the items would take many, many pages and besides, we never really know exactly what will be sold until the day of the sale. But here's what you can probably find (examples of items sold in past yrs): ~ANTIQUES & VINTAGE items ~CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES (purses, handbags, backpacks, shoes, etc) ~JEWELRY (valuable & not so valuable) ~COSTUME JEWELRY (maybe very valuable ~ see PBS's Antiques Roadshow!) ~KNICK-KNACKS galore! ~SMALL APPLIANCES (toasters, coffee makers, humidifiers, etc) ~HOUSEHOLD items (iron/ironing board, vacuum cleaners, etc) ~KITCHEN items (pans, dishes, mugs, utensils, etc) ~BOOKS, CASSETTES, VIDEOS, DVDs, CDs, LPs... ~ELECTRONIC items (TVs, etc) ~DECORATIONS & DECORATIVE items (Xmas & other holiday decorations, dried flowers, vases, etc) ~GAMES, TOYS, JIGSAW PUZZLES... ~INDOOR & OUTDOOR FURNITURE ~USEFUL & USELESS items (in other words, practically anything you can think of & then some;-) Of course, all this shopping should work up an appetite. No worries, we've got that covered too with our BAKE SALE. But word to the wise, start there first as the best goodies get sold first.

So the most important thing to remember is this is a ONE DAY ONLY sale on Saturday, April 26th from 8am-NOON. Enjoy your shopping bonanza!
