Yard sales!

Yes, folks, it is yard and garage sale season again!  Old Village (Plymouth) is having a neighborhood wide sale Saturday, April 27th.  Come peruse the neighborhood.  Start at Station 885, if you can, there will be trunk sales in the lower parking lot and they’ll have maps of all the good houses.
