Jim Thorpe hosts the Annual Merchants and Neighbors Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8. If you are looking for a great bargain, a fun shopping experience, or love to find hidden treasures, then come to Jim Thorpe’s historic Downtown District and the East Side from noon until 5:00, rain or shine.
Make a day of it – visitors can park behind the train station visitors center and stroll Jim Thorpe’s tree-lined shaded streets that are steeped in history and local color. Walk from the Train Station, past Hazard Square and head up Broadway to the Old Jail on West Broadway.
Be sure to include Race Street and Opera House Square as well, and you’ll discover over 45 vendor tables or sites. Head across the bridge to the East Side of town and explore many more participating businesses and residents.
This two-day sale extravaganza is a bargain shopper’s and junkaholic’s paradise, with merchants and neighbors filling their front sidewalks, driveways, porches, and side alleys with cool household items, stuff from their attics, garages and basements, including antiques and collectibles, baked goodies, clothes, toys, small appliances and tons of treasures not to be missed. Early holiday shoppers and bargain hunters most welcome!
Along with the sidewalk sales, many of the downtown merchants will have special inventory reductions available that weekend. Come for the day, stay for the weekend! Eateries, galleries, shops and accommodations are open as well.
