Islandia Village Hosts First “Ye Olde Fashioned Tag Sale” of the Year on June 7

Friday, May 2, 2014

It is said that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. On June 7, the Village of Islandia is asking its residents to clean out their garages, attics, basements and closets and bring their unwanted items to the “Ye Olde Fashioned Tag Sale” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Village Hall, located at 1100 Old Nichols Road. This will be the first tag sale the village will host this year. (The second tag sale will take place on August 9.)

Village residents will be on hand to sell items such as toys, books, clothes, lamps and assorted knick-knacks. There will be over 100 spaces available for a fee of $20 (available for both residents and non-residents). These spaces are filling up fast, so please register as soon as possible.

The Village of Islandia has traditionally held one tag sale during the year, but in 2012, due to the growing success and increasing turnout, it decided to hold the event a second time in the fall. Since then, the village has held two tag sales each year.

This is a rain-or-shine event. All are invited to come down, browse and make a purchase. For more information, or to reserve a spot, call 631-348-1133, or visit
