Community Sales Abound in Easton Next Weekend

Three out of four of Easton's neighborhoods are planning community-wide sale events for next Saturday, May 11.

The annual College Hill Neighborhood Yard Sale, hosted by the College Hill Neighborhood Association, is the most established of the bunch, offering the opportunity for residents to clean out and make a little cash too from their no-longer needed goods.

The sale is enhanced by a map of participants, which shoppers can pick up in front of the Lafayette Inn, 525 West Monroe St. or from various participating College Hill merchants. The sale runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents that haven't yet signed up still have the opportunity to do so until next Tuesday, May 7. It costs $10 to get in on the action, and the fee covers inclusion on both a printed version and electronic version of the map.

Those wishing to register in person may drop cash, check or a money order off at The Lafayette in by Tuesday during business hours.

In Easton's Downtown, a sidewalk sale, open to all neighborhood merchants and residents, is planned from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The sale is intended to bring Downtown residents and merchants together, as well as attract attention to the neighborhood, said co-organizer Jamie Leisy, of Forgotten Treasure Chest, 245 Northampton St.

"We want to get the word out. It's open to residents too," Leisy said at a recent Easton Business Association mixer. "The more the merrier."

Those wishing to participate my just do so on that day, but to officially get in on the action, contact Forgotten Treasure Chest at 610-829-1077 or stop by the shop during business hours.

In case of rain, the Downtown Easton Sidewalk Sale will be held a week later, on Saturday, May 18.

In South Side, the South Side Civic Association is having a yard sale from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Easton Area Neighborhood Center, 902 Philadelphia Road.

The sale is open to both neighborhood residents and those who live elsewhere. There is a fee of $5 for South Side residents. The cost is $10 for those outside the South Side neighborhood.  To reserve a spot, call 610-253-5512.

The rain date is noon to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 12.
