Massive yard sale set for Saturday

YARD SALE GUIDE: Check here for our complete list of area yard sales this weekend around Fredericksburg.


Bowling Green residents can get a late start on their spring cleaning this weekend with the town’s yard sale.

‘The Clean Sweep’ starts at 8 a.m. Saturday and runs until 1 p.m.

It’s the 12th year for the annual event, which town officials hope will bring people to Bowling Green. It offers an opportunity to explore the quaint Caroline County town while searching for hidden treasures disguised as junk—or just the opposite.

Visitors can also shop at the Bowling Green Farmer’s Market, which features local vendors.

Households that have chosen to participate in the yard sale register ahead of time and are listed on a map to help shoppers find the sales. Those who don’t live in the town can participate by having a table at the Bowling Green Flea Market.

More than 40 homes are participating in the yard sale, which is more than last year. Each home will have a sign, and there will be signs throughout town to direct visitors to the participating homes.

At the end of the sale, a Goodwill truck will go to the houses to pick up any items that have not sold. Goodwill will provide receipts for tax records.
