Preparing for Leominster's City Wide Yard Sale

We will be closed today (Thursday, May 18) and tomorrow (Friday, May 19) because we are getting ready for Leominster's City Wide Yard sale on Saturday, May 20! (Of course we're always open at our online vintage shop).

The yard sale is a great way to unload some of the the items we've been accumulating in our search for the best vintage stuff!

Most of the vintage items we sell online and at our fab shop we acquire at auctions or estate sales, and they often come in large lots, with some items being vintage and others not.

We sort through the items and choose the vintage goodies we want to put in our vintage store, and then the ones that aren't vintage or if they aren't the type of item we usually sell, we set aside for a great yard sale like this!

Yard Sale Deets:
When: Saturday May 20, 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Where: 139 Central Street and locations all over Leominster (see map below)
Why: It's a yard sale lover's dream! Good stuff cheap!

Light the Town Purple! Cancer Awareness Event Leominster

Michelle and I were so proud to win the contest for the best store front display for Leominster's Light the Town Purple Event on Thursday, May 11. This event is in support of the Greater Gardner Relay for Life, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. It was also a reminder for all of us to get cancer screenings early.

Offbeat Avenue was one of many local businesses that decorated their store front window in purple to show our support!

Watch our interview with Mayor Dean Mazzarella here:

Light the Town Purple: With Song!

It was a cool but very sunny evening when the event started at the steps of Leominster City Hall. The purple fire engine pulled up, along with the purple-adorned trolley full of the Fallbrook School Songbirds, who wowed us with their singing performances that evening.




It was the perfect spring evening.

It was a wonderful event! Thanks to the city of Leominster, the Mayor, and his amazing staff!
