AUBURN, Mass. – The Auburn Senior Center craft fair and yard sale featuring more than 30 vendors will kick off at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 23.
The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Auburn Senior Citizens Association, will be held rain or shine at 4 Goddard Drive.
Vendors can start setting up at 6 a.m. The public is invited from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and all proceeds will go toward programs for the senior center.
“We’re hoping for a very well-attended event,” said Ann Weston, an association member. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to see your friends and neighbors.
“You just never know what treasures you’re going to find,” she said. “You can pick up an item you need for your home at a very reasonable price.”
A bake sale will also be held Saturday with “wonderful, home-baked goods,” she said.
“Last year there was a blueberry pie to die for,” she said. “You definitely want to come early if you want something homemade because they will go quick.”
Signed up as of this past weekend were 18 vendors with tables inside, 11 vendors outside and two sharing the gazebo space.
A few more spots are available for vendors if anyone is interested, Weston said. Call her at 508-832-2833 to reserve a spot for Saturday.
In addition, Weston said the association is accepting donated items for the yard sale until Friday at 3 p.m.
“For folks who don’t want their own table, they can bring in household items, like books and dishes,” she said. “They have to be in clean, good condition, and they can’t be electronics or clothing.”
Coffee and doughnuts will be served in the morning, with sandwiches, chips and beverages at lunchtime.
