How would you like to find a Kate Spade purse for a dollar, a cordial carafe and six glasses for five dollars, or a couple of German steins for $20? That’s just a sample of the bargains that I have located at the Historic District Yard Sale in Springfield, Tennessee in years past.
This year’s gigantic yard sale is scheduled for Saturday, June 9. Almost every yard in the downtown historic district bordered by Fifth Avenue (the extension of Route 49 leading into Springfield) is covered with offerings. Come early to beat the crowds. «Read the rest of this article»

Trenton, KY – How do you avoid the hustle and bustle of Black Friday but still get some great bargains? Try shopping in a small town in Kentucky.
There was only one shop open today in Trenton, but business was steady, and it does qualify as an independently owned small business; we were just a day early for Small Business Saturday, and we wanted to get some sale fabric –yes we REALLY did need more Christmas fabric. At least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Bowling Green, KY – If you love reptiles and amphibians, you will not want to miss the Kentucky Reptile Expo on August 6th, 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Carroll Knicely Conference Center on the Western Kentucky University campus in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Jarrod Greer purchased Kentucky Reptile Expo about five years ago. At that time, it had been held in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Greer moved it to Shepherdsville about a year later. Last year, Greer decided to turn it into a traveling reptile expo for 2011 and has done successful shows in Hopkinsville, Bowling Green, Shepherdsville, Corbin and other cities in Kentucky.
Cross Plains, TN - Trash and Treasures celebrated its 25th Anniversary this year. This yard sale extravaganza takes place in Cross Plains, a small town on Route 25 East, about 15 miles from Springfield. If you’ve never visited the town, you don’t know what a great time you’ve missed.

The event has a festival feel with arts and craft vendors and food merchants lining both of the main roads through this small Middle Tennessee city.
Trenton Kentucky will hold its annual Heart of Trenton Celebration today, but there was much preparation that had to be done ahead of time in order to welcome several thousand visitors to that tiny town. This year I was invited to help with preparing the annual Quilt Show , which is held at the Golden Threads Drapery Shop on South Main Street. Visitors will be delighted to see some old favorites as well as newly made quilts from the surrounding areas. Trenton now has a new quilt shop named Quilt and Sew at Golden Threads, and the owner, Denise Shivers, is also the co-ordinator for the Quilt Show.
Remembering the past, Honoring the present
Dover, TN – I love small town festivals they have a certain je ne sais quois, a charm, an innocence that you just don’t find in festivals held in larger towns. Don’t get me wrong I love Clarksville’sFestival, and adore Riverfest. But Dover’s Eagle Fest was a lot of fun too. The festival is held Memorial Day weekend and the events continued non-stop.
The festival opened with your typical parade. However it wasn’t overrun with rampant commercialism. Another charming aspect was that the children along the route were simply showered with candy; the various Beauty Queens were tossing it out by the handful. The Grand Marshal was a veteran A.J. Dalton.«Read the rest of this article»
