If you haven’t already browsed the full Saturday lineup on our calendar – here’s a quick list of highlights:
HPIC RUMMAGE SALE: It’s big, it’s quirky, it’s happening now through 3 pm (and again 9-2 Sunday if you can’t get there today), it’s the Highland Park Improvement Club rummage sale. Also go admire how the HPIC parking lot has evolved into a courtyard/raingarden since last time. (12th/Holden)
ARTS AND CRAFTS FAIR: Now through 3 pm, unique creations are on sale at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) – go browse and meet the artists! Like Machel Spence, who sent the photo of her shell-box display:
