Poultney townwide sale Saturday

I f you’re planning on traveling down Main Street in Poultney, Vt. on Saturday, June 7, you might want to bring along a pair of walking shoes and some shopping bags.
Each year, for about the past 20 to 25 years, Poultney has been holding a Townwide Yard Sale on the first weekend of June and people fill the streets sides with an endless amount of odds and ends they are looking to sell. The event has become so popular it is now considered a longtime tradition throughout the community.
The event is sponsored by the Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce and will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
“People come from all over to sell and buy things,” said Mary Lee Harris, event spokesperson. She has seen street vendors come from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and even Connecticut. Last week, she said there were 76 vendors who committed to attending the event and another three had been lined up as well.
“My goal is to get 80,” Harris said proudly.
The vendor spaces are located at 75 Main Street, however, there are several businesses, organizations and home sites throughout the community also participating in this event. Harris said there will be new surprises around each street corner.
Harris said shoppers can find nearly anything from toys, clothes, crafty gifts to anything in your wildest imagination.
“There is something for everyone,” Harris said enthusiastically.
Odds and ends, however, won’t be the only things for sale.
This year a special treat will be located in the Citizens Bank parking lot where the Poultney Rotary International will hold a chicken barbeque. Also at another location there will be fried bread dough available.
Harris said the event is enjoyable for vendors and shoppers alike.
“Everyone has a very good time. It is very crowded and it’s hard to find a place to park,” Harris said adding the crowds will be even larger if the weather is nice.
For anyone seeking more information about this event, contact Harris at Stitchy Women and Back Room Boutique, 144 Main Street in Poultney or call her at (802) 287-4114.
