Someone, or a group of someones, has come up with a great name for a sale of this type, so let’s give Sherry French the opportunity to invite you all to Dover-Foxcroft’s first Junktique Extravaganza from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, March 14, in the Morton Avenue gymnasium in that community.

Billed as a great place for people who consider themselves a “shopaholic, yard sale specialist or craft and antique lover” hosts promise more than “30 tables filled with crafts and treasures, alike … laid out for you to scout through so you can find just that thing you were looking for, even if you don’t know what that is yet.”

Food will be available to purchase as well, and all proceeds from the food sale will benefit the Shiretown Homecoming Celebration.

French urges you to “come and support your town,” enjoy the food, and enjoy shopping for “amazing deals.”
