SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WGGB) — It was a great day to take a ride and see the foliage. But for some, their car ride was spent visiting the annual, town-wide Columbus Day tag sale in South Hadley.
Many lawns were covered with, in the eyes of many, treasures just waiting to be found. Everything from furniture to shoes to toys, to motorized scooters was there.
Oswald Perez found six motorized scooters for his kids. Asking price was $100. He negotiated it down to $40.
“Kids are excited,” said Perez. “Yeah, it was a good deal.”
And if people were looking for hand made clothes, jewelry or other things, they found them on the town common. Sue Molitoris was selling hats, scarves and even snowflake ornaments.
“When they come by, I’ve had a lot of comments on my work,” said Molitoris. “And that makes me feel really good and satisfied.”
Mount Holyoke College student Charlotte Scott found something for her sweet tooth, so to speak. She bought a cup cake fashioned out of yearn.
“I saw all the tents and i thought, something’s calling me here,” said Scott. “Then, this cupcake caught my eye. Now the rest is history.”
So, until next Columbus Day, hands will be busy making more crafts. And people will be busy clearing out those attics and basements.
