    August 28, Belchertown Common – come to the St Francis tag sale; over 4 acres of household goods, furniture (some antiques), arts/crafts supplies, clothing, sporting goods, kitchen wares and MORE. All priced to go and go fast. No early birds and it’s rain/shine until 2 pm. The last hour everything is half off. New England quirkiness at its best. Common is located on Rts 181 and 202.
