Peddlers Faire canceled

The board of the Lewiston Sparkies have decided to cancel the 2021 Old Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire for Saturday, June 5, due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns regarding groups gathering.

The Faire takes months of preparation, advertising and publicity. It was decided to forego the activities and related expenses so that a last-minute cancellation did not have to occur.

The Sparkies plan to resume the Faire in 2022.

Yard Sale dates set

Dates for the two annual Countywide Yard Sales organized by The Trinity Journal have been set for 2021.

Spring: April 23-25

Fall: Sept. 10-12

Advertising, listings deadlines are generally two weeks prior.

Buyers can anticipate lots of new treasures as sellers have had lots of extra time this past year to clear out garages and closets.
