PLYMOUTH – The twen- ty-sixth annual Plymouth Town Wide Yard Sale on September 9 was a huge success. The commu- nity group site at the Plymouth Municipal Airport, 311 Quincy Road, Plymouth, NH, hosted more than fifty vendors. An- other forty vendors set up sales at homes, businesses, churches, and private group sites around town, making the day a great adventure for yard sale shoppers. Truly the environmental harmonizers were working full speed. The weather was nice, and everyone was in a good mood.
The group site at the Airport was so harmonious that once the vendors got settled, the at- mosphere was like an exciting country fair. What a luxury it was to have two toilet units from Randlett Trucking and Septic.
Plymouth Townwide Yard Sale
October 2023
Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops raised funds for activities, sev- eral non-profits raised funds for their services and awareness for their causes, businesses, and fam- ilies downsized and cleaned out estates and barns. Customers parked in neat rows and didn’t crowd the food truck. Vendors were happy, customers were happy, and the airport manager was happy. A win-win-win sit- uation. There’s enough space on the field for even more ven- dors next year. More registra- tions equal more donations for the Veterans Fund, translating to more services provided. The yard sale is also a valuable event for bringing new people to Plym- outh—shoppers, house hunters, entrepreneurs, and potential em- ployees. It’s a wholesome family activity for both vendors and
customers. You never know what you will find at a yard sale. Visit PlymouthYardSaleNH for more
fun pictures.
