Kingsville Township attracts bargain hunters with lawn sale

KINGSVILLE TOWNSHIP — Dry weather, and 100 vendors, drew hundreds of people to the 43rd annual Kingsville Lawn Sale on Saturday in the township’s park near the intersection of Route 193 and Route 84.

“This might be one of our top 10 weather (for the event),” said Kingsville Public Library Director Mariana Branch. She said the vendors came from all over northeastern Ohio including one from Cuyahoga County.

Parking was at a premium in the immediate vicinity, but visitors could use a shuttle that took people from Kingsville Elementary School to the village green. “That way people don’t have to carry their packages far,” Branch said.

The annual event includes people organizing their vacation schedules to gather with friends and family and catch a craft bargain or pick up some baked goods. “We had people waiting at the gates,” she said of folks ready to go at the 9 a.m. start.

Roseann Price, of Wintersville, changed her annual vacation timing to make sure they would be able to attend the lawn sale. “We came up specifically for this,” she said.

Branch said entertainment options included music and a Tai-chi demonstration. She said the event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is used predominantly as a fundraiser for children’s programs.

“They (the Friends

of the Library)

typically bring in $5,000 to $6,000,” Branch said. She said the money usually goes for a variety of purposes that include a summer reading camp, a 10 week summer reading program, financial assistance to send Braden Middle School students to an English Fair and book purchases.
