The Things You Never Knew You Needed


The first Saturday in May…..the day where one man’s trash becomes another man’s treasure!  Just in time for spring cleaning, the annual Town Wide Yard Sale is Saturday, May 5th on the streets of Oriental.  There will be 80+ yards for you to stop and shop for special finds just waiting to be found.  The yard sale starts at 8am and the weekly Oriental Farmer’s Market is from 8-11.  Also, the Oriental History Museum is hosting a Shipwreck Party on Saturday at 11 to mark the 150th anniversary of the wreck of the Oriental Steamer off the coast of the Outer Banks.  The ship being Oriental’s namesake of course.  The yard sale is on just about every street in Oriental, the farmer’s market is on Hodges Street and the History Museum in on Broad Street.  Lots to see and do in Oriental on what’s shaping up to be a beautiful spring weekend!
