Bolton's 2016 Town-Wide Yard Sale (TWYS)
October 15 from 9-3
Deadline to register is September 24.  See form attached below.

For the past six years, hundreds of shoppers from far and wide have descended on more than 40 locations around town in search of yard sale treasures. Over the years, sellers have taken in from $6,000 to $11,000 in sales annually, with a majority contributing 10% or more to local charities and causes.

TWYS participation cost is just $8, which buys a seller a spot on the map that will be available online in advance and in several locations around town on the day of the sale to direct shoppers to all the sales. The fee covers publicity in Bolton and surrounding communities, as well as the cost of the maps. You may want to sell your wares at one of our common areas - either Slater's or the Bolton Town Common.  Make checks payable to Bolton Local and return the completed forms to Bolton Local, PO Box 92, Bolton, MA 01740. Sign-up deadline is September 24, but early responses are encouraged.  The form is attached below.

Each seller can also sign up to be a “10 percent house,” committing on the honor system to donate 10 percent of proceeds to a local cause or favorite charity. “10 percent houses” will be noted on sellers list. This year Bolton Local is encouraging participants to donate to the Bolton Conservation Trust’s Town Common project.
