KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — Once a year the city of Kamiah has a City Wide Yard Sale. It is always a fun time for those who enjoy yard sales. Scattered all over town, (there is a map) jillions of yard sales, starting around 9 a.m. Bring lots of bags to put stuff in and money.
We crafty old ladies at the Clearwater Valley Market Co-Op are having the grand opening of Phase II of our new venture this weekend also. We now have a fully functional Co-Op Café, Java Bean and Tea Room, Herbal Apothecary, (where you can make your own supplements) and Ice Cream Shop. We are serving sandwiches, soups, baked potatoes, salads, Espressos, healthy smoothies and herbal teas, homemade ice cream, goodies of all types, and root beer floats. Phenomenal food and great conversation. In Phase I, we initiated a Dry Food Section. We now have in excess of 225 dry and dehydrated foods and herbs. Shop the sales and stop by to see what a bunch of dedicated, older than 65-year-old ladies can do.
Valley Garden Club annual plant/baked food sale, CV Marketplace sidewalk, Main Street, Kooskia, Friday, May 8, 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Next day, Saturday, May 9, visit Tahoe Quick Response Unit across the street at Potter’s Mall, in front, on the sidewalk; this is their annual fund-raising bake sale. Sale begins at 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., or until all those goodies are gone.
