SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – The streets of South Hadley were lined with knick-knacks, crafts, and goods that bargain hunters were on the lookout for Monday.
Tag Sales in South Hadley are an annual tradition on Columbus Day.
Lawns along Route 116 become shopping centers, offering anything from coffee makers to old records.
People passing by can look for a deal on a particular item or stumble upon a treasure that has been stored away in someone’s attic.
Bev Grilly of Chicopee told 22News she went to the tag sale with an open mind. “Right now I’m just looking, my daughter could use a lamp for her room, and so if I see something, odds are that you won’t be able to find it somewhere else,” she said.
Even if you aren’t searching for something in particular, the tag sales are also a chance to enjoy the day.
The town’s tag sale tradition began more than twenty years ago at one of the churches, and the shoppers have continued to come every year.
