Acushnet’s Town-Wide Yard Sale to Feature More Than 100 Households
Acushnet's annual yard sale keeps growing bigger and better every year, and there's now even a guide to make your yard-saling experience more efficient in 2021.
Even after the town's Apple Peach Festival was canceled due to a lack of preparation time, community members decided to continue on with the unofficial town-wide yard sales that have historically accompanied the festival.
"[I] am still relatively new to town, but from what I understand, people [have] always had yard sales the same weekend as the Apple Peach Festival," Kelsey Janak of Spruce Up Acushnet said. "When I asked the All Things Acushnet [Facebook] group if the town ever had a town-wide yard sale –my friends in Carver just had their first one and it was a hit, so I wanted to try and organize one – this was brought to my attention."
The yard sale is quickly approaching, set for September 11 and 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, and now, shoppers will be able to go in with a better plan and better organization than ever before.
Throughout the past month or so, Janak has been hard at work, putting together a guide of over 100 participating homes and what all they'll be selling. From designer handbags and door signs to Legos and furniture, there's something for everyone, and shoppers will be able to know which sales peak their interest ahead of time. Some sales will be fundraising for local SouthCoast charities and animal shelters, while others will feature lemonade stands, fruit stands and more! Janak even organized the guide into a route of sorts through Google Maps view, in case you're wanting to keep the day rolling in the most logical way.
So go ahead – Take a look and start planning out your weekend at Acushnet's town-wide yard sale. With over 100 sales to pick through, you're bound to bring home more than a few treasures!
