Townwide Treasures Yard Sales

September 17 @ 9:00 AM3:00 PM

The Chester First Aid Squad is once again partnering with Chester Township and Chester Borough to organize the popular annual Town-wide Treasures Yard Sale. The event will be held on Saturday, September 17th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m, with a rain date of Sunday, September 18th.

As in past years, participants can set up at their homes, and for a $10 fee be
listed on a master list on a town-wide Google map. This is a convenient method for treasure hunters and sellers alike. Last year over 40 households participated in the event.

As an alternative to setting up at home, household sellers are invited to display their wares at the centrally-located Chester First Aid Squad (CFAS) headquarters location at 100 North Road across from Black River Middle School in Chester. A tax-deductible donation to CFAS of $20 is requested. Participants should bring one or two tables; chairs will be provided. CFAS will provide free popcorn, and soda and water will be available for sale as a fundraiser.

For more information, please email: If you are a household seller, or commercial/retail vendor and would like to participate, register at:
