SwappER Shop - Saturday, May 21

Sherburne County Fairgrounds
9:00-11:00 a.m.

Residents are invited to bring items that aren’t their style anymore, while having the opportunity to take home your own “new to you” treasures donated by other SwappER shoppers! What’s more, these are totally free to attend, and no money is exchanged - everything must be given and taken freely. 

The inaugural SwappER Shop is garden themed. Keep an eye out when decluttering the garage or shed for items in good condition that are simply taking up space and not being used, including: 

  • Lawn and garden décor 
  • Bird houses, bird feeders, bird baths 
  • Planters and flowerpots (plastic, clay, ceramic)
  • Shovels, rakes, trowels, pitchforks, etc.
  • Hand tools
  • Gardening and plant books
