For the fourth year in a row, Bolton will be the scene of "the ultimate recycling event" -- a townwide yard sale, this year featuring nearly 60 sellers at locations around town -- all on the same day. The sale will take place Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (In case of drizzle or light rain, the sale will not be postponed. In case of a downpour, the sale will take place on Sunday, May 5, same times.)

In addition to Bolton yards, driveways, and garages, shoppers will find sellers at three group locations: Slater's, Firewater & Wine; and Bolton Orchards. At a yard sale event this big, shoppers are bound to find treasures among the many items sellers are offering this year, which include antiques, collectibles, jewelry, books, electronics, plants, toys, and more. Some sellers plan to donate 10 percent or more to a local charity, making this sale a win-win-for everyone!

Participants will tie a balloon to their mailboxes to further identify their sale location. A map that marks all locations will guide shoppers around town and will also list some of the items for sale at each location. Maps will be available May 3 at the three group sites, as well as the Country Cupboard on Main Street. Maps will also be available online May 4 at

The annual Townwide Yard Sale is sponsored by Bolton Local, a not-for-profit promoting community sustainability.
