Everyone has a unique way of marking the start of summer at the beach. Ice cream shops are opening, favorite restaurants start serving 7-days-a-week, pools open, Memorial Day comes with barbeques and picnics. For the past 27 years, the REAL sign that summer is on is the Annual Memorial Weekend Jefferson Avenue Yard Sale! It’s true!
Of course, Jefferson Avenue is in good company. Yard sales have already started; you’ll see signs this weekend throughout Lewes, Milton and Rehoboth. Typically they start at 8 a.m. and you may see early birds cruising past to try to catch a sneak peek.
Next weekend, Saturday, May 25, you will need to get up early to catch the undoubtedly great finds on Jefferson Avenue.
In addition, you can drive down Gills Neck Road, through Wolfe Pointe and Wolfe Runne, down DeVries Circle, and throughout Lewes (forgive me if I’ve missed anyone) to find your own treasures.
Even if “Antiques Roadshow” isn’t in your future, there’s always one gem among the yard sales that makes getting up early on a Saturday worthwhile.
And if you still don’t find it – head over to the Farmer’s Market!
