Community collaboration has garnered five locations in Franklin to help you fulfill your New Year’s resolutions and enjoy bargains. Join Franklin’s third annual Town-wide Indoor Yard Sales on Saturday, January 26, from 8 AM to 1 PM to recycle gently used items and shop for bargains.
Cleaning out after the holidays? All five organizations are ready to accept your donations now. These organizations would appreciate your donations to help the environment – and their causes!
With the exception of TVs and stereo equipment, items in good working or usable condition are being sought: household, decor, tools, toys, clothing, etc. will be gladly accepted.
