St. James Church to Host 23rd Norman’s Attic in Arlington
Norman’s Attic is returning to Arlington on Saturday, August 4, from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. Now in its 23rd year, this town-wide tag sale and celebration hosted by Saint James’ Episcopal Church gets its name from beloved American illustrator Norman Rockwell, who resided in Arlington and painted its residents for the Saturday Evening Post and other magazines for more than 20 years. Tag sales will abound, while along Main Street vendors will be selling a wide selection of goods. In front of the Church on Route 7A, parishioners and volunteers will be hosting an early-bird coffee and donut station before the grill gets fired up to turn out hot dogs and burgers along with toppings such as sautéed onions and peppers, homemade sandwiches and a gourmet bake table. There will also be tables full of kitchenware, toys, puzzles, decorative items and costume jewelry at can’t-resist prices. The Cross Country Cloggers will be showing off their fancy footwork in the afternoon, while Saint James’ – Vermont’s first Episcopal parish – and its historic cemetery will be open for viewing and informal tours. In addition, the church will provide information about some of the private tag sales going on throughout town that day. For more information, call 802-375-9952 or go to stjamesarlingtonvt. org.
