Town-Wide Tag Sale
The Better Bennington Corporation joins forces with the North Bennington McCullough Library and the Bennington Free Library for a town-wide tag sale on July 22, 2023. This event is free (unless you buy lots of loot!) and open to the public.
Who doesn't love a good tag sale? How about several tag sales all on the same day, all around the same town!?
Several folks are coming together for a group sale in Merchants Park while others will host sales at their homes in Bennington and North Bennington. Every item imaginable is up for grabs. As they say, "One person's trash is another person's treasure..."
As of this writing, there are 38 unique sellers and more applications are still coming! A QR code to the listing on Google Maps will be available at both libraries and at every sale. It and will go live on the Wednesday evening prior to the sales weekend. There will also be a full page map in the Banner on the Saturday. All the sales will also have access to the QR code.
Some sales will take only cash. Others will accept checks and Venmo. Some might even take credit cards! This is an individual decision by each seller.
