Bargain hunters, start your engines

photo(43)It’s spring, which means yard sales, block sales and other places to search for treasure are filling up the Saturdays of those of us who enjoy bargain hunting.

There seems to be a plethora of places to shop this weekend in central Fresno, so I thought I’d compile some here. I know there are many more out there, so feel free to add any you know about in the comments section.

  • The Cambridge Avenue block sale is Saturday, promising lots of furniture, clothing and other stuff. It’s one of the first of many Saturday block sales in the Fresno High area (with yard sales happening generally between Van Ness and Harrison avenues).
  • In conjunction with that block sale, the First Congregational Church (the “big red church”) is holding its annual yard sale and bake sale from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. The church is at 2131 N Van Ness Blvd. in Fresno.
  • Signs for the Old Fig Community Yard Sale have dotted Fig Garden for weeks. The event appears to be a collection of yard sales across the neighborhood, not in one particular location. It runs from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • The first Park Place farmers market of the season is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. You won’t find used goods there, but there will be jewelry, hats, flowers, Kettle Corn, roasted corn on the cob, food trucks and of course, lots of fruit and vegetable vendors. The Park Place shopping center is at Palm and Nees avenues.
