Longstreet Society Yard Sale

Are you a fan of yard sales? The Longstreet Society will be holding one on October 29 from 8 am to 1 pm at the Piedmont Hotel to benefit the continued restoration of that historic building.
There is lots of furniture, office equipment, knick-knacks, antiques, pictures, picture frames and much more. I was particularly impressed with the vintage linens. Donations are still rolling in, so there'll be lots to choose from. PLUS you'll get to see the historic Piedmont Hotel, an often overlooked Gainesville treasure. It's at 827 Maple Street.
