This is one of my favorite book and rummage sales, and I share the news here verbatim, as it came to me:


Spring Place, near Chatsworth, Georgia: Spring Place: Trail of Tears to Historic Township is the theme for the 19th Annual Spring Place Community Festival set for Saturday, August 20 at the Old Spring Place Methodist Church.  A new and used book sale, food concessions, a bake sale, an indoor and outdoor flea market, T-shirts, a raffle, and other activities will begin at 8 a.m. Highlighting the day is the auction which will include artist prints, paintings, book sets, furniture, antiques, rugs, and gift cards donated by area businesses.  The auction will begin at 10:00.
