‘Get Outta Town’ for One Person’s Junk, Your Treasure

The season is upon us for yard sales, sidewalk sales and garage sales, plus all manner of shows to uncover and rediscover shabby chic, rustic, artisan-made and handcrafted goods. 

North State treasure hunters have the new Burlap Harlots Show in Anderson, Springpalooza in Palo Cedro and the Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire to look forward to. (More about those shows in future editions of “Get Outta Town.”)

The good news is you can curb your early-onset junk-hunting fever just a short drive outta town — at the Yreka Swap Meet. Get your fill of local crafters and musicians, yard salers, food, animal fibers, local products and a farmers market at Yreka’s weekly fair.

What: Yreka Swap Meet

When: Saturdays through Oct. 29 – 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Where: Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds, 1712 Fairlane Road, Yreka

There are still spots for new vendors at the Yreka Swap Meet and event organizers welcome creative fund raisers, cottage businesses, classic cars, community groups and schools.
