CWW: Memorial Day book sale

The First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Northborough will once again have their Memorial Day Fair, a great book (and plant) sale, from 10am-3pm.  Great prices and selection.  And the strawberry shortcake can’t be beat!

This year, the Boylston Public Library will not be holding a book sale due to renovations.  This is usually one of my favorite sales of the year, so I’ll look forward to going again next year!

And Savers will have a sale on Memorial Day from 9am-9pm on the usual: clothing, shoes, accessories, and bed & bath.
