Good shopping this weekend

junkdaysOne of the biggest block sales of the season is this weekend, the Terrace Avenue sale in the Fresno High neighborhood. And in a twist, the Brown Avenue sale is also this weekend, allowing you to hit up two in one day. If you’re not familiar with these ¬†block sales, the¬†neighborhood holds a slew of them on Saturdays in May. Go to Palm Avenue and turn onto either street for yard sales full of furniture, clothing, jewelry and food vendors. Be prepared for crowds. It gets crazy. It starts early and winds down after lunch.

Glorious Junk Days is Sunday in Old Town Clovis. Actually only one day, this event is a giant catch-all for all kinds of cool stuff: antiques, vintage items, architectural salvage — as in, old doors that can be made into headboards — collectibles and handmade items. It’s kinda like a 3-D Pinterest: Lots of the projects you see on Pinterest are there, but someone else has already made them for you. Glorious Junk Days runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Pollasky Avenue is blocked off near Fifth Street.
