Coming This Saturday: Shop Til You Drop


Sculpture in front of Creative Arts Group

This Saturday, the 8th, is a great day to find some fabulous bargains right here in town.   Creative Arts Group is having their Annual Flea Market, and the Wistaria Thrift Shop at the Woman's Club is having a grand re-opening.

Creative Arts will have "furniture, housewares, collectibles, toys, games, books and everything else under the sun."  The flea market opens at 9:00 a.m., and they suggest you get there early, for the best selection.

The Wistaria Thrift Shop was closed all summer for cleaning, repairs and refurbishing.  It will open at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, with  "fresh, clean clothing, jewelry, shoes, handbags, scarfs, ties, a huge variety of household needs, craft supplies, books, electronics, toys, collectibles and much more."

Saturday will be a great day for picking up some gently-used treasure, and helping some good causes at the same time.  The smartest of shoppers will put on her/his most comfortable shoes - or buy some that day - and hit the sales. 

For more details, check out this Patch listing for both events.

  6. I'm starting a class Saturday - you know, cuz I'm just not busy enough - so I will miss out on this excellent shopping opportunity. Darn - I could use some new, or gently used, shoes too.

    1. Oh, I understand that penchant for being just a bit too busy at all times. What kind of class is it? As long as you're having fun, it's a good one! Shoes - always needed!
