The annual Community Yard Sale was founded in 2010 by the Chewelah Chamber of Commerce. The event draws hundreds of shoppers to Chewelah for the day. This year, The Independent newspaper is proud to be organizing this wonderful event. The Independent is Stevens County's oldest locally-owned newspaper (since 1903!) and is a huge supporter of Chewelah and the entire Colville River valley. We hope you enjoy the day and return each and every year!
When is the big day?
Chewelah's annual Community Yard Sale is always held on the first Saturday in May. This year's big sale is on:
Saturday, May 4th, 2013
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
(Some sales may open earlier and/or close later. Those exceptions will be noted on the printed map.)
Where is this awesome place?
Chewelah is located in the heart of the beautiful Colville River valley. As usual, many shoppers from outside Chewelah are expected to come to town for this big event - Here's how to find us!
All roads lead to Chewelah. It's really quite easy!
From the North: Follow U.S. Hwy. 395 South from Colville 21 miles.
From the South: Follow U.S. Hwy. 395 North from Spokane 40 miles.
From the East: Take a scenic drive over Flowery Trail Rd. from Pend Oreille County. Flowery Trail Rd. intersects with Hwy. 20 at Usk.
From China (or anywhere else): We recommend Google Maps! Google has a comprehensive (and very funny) set of directions here to make the journey from China. Be prepared to allow plenty of time, pay some hefty tolls, ride a jet ski, and sail a boat during your adventure!
Where can I find a map showing the sale locations?
So you've decided (and we agree it's a great decision!) to join the fun in Chewelah and now you need to find a copy of the map showing all of the sale locations. Here's how to find one:
