C.I.D.E.R.’s annual Apple Blossom Book and Bake Sale will again be over Memorial Day weekend at Hackett’s Orchard on South Street in South Hero. This year there are over 12,000 books to choose from in many genres ranging from Romance and Mystery to Non-Fiction, Puzzles, Games and Audio/Video Tapes. The sale runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday and 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Sunday. For C.I.D.E.R. members only there is a special “members only” sale Friday, May 27th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM (this is one of the many perks for being a member).
Regular paperbacks this year are $.75, with larger “trade” paperbacks $1.00. Hard cover books are $2.00 or 3 books for $5.00. Children’s “no spine” books are $.25. New this year you will also receive, with a purchase of $10.00 or more, a free large C.I.D.E.R. tote bag to carry your purchases. These tote bags are available for the first 250 customers.
At this, the 16th Memorial Day C.I.D.E.R. sale you will also find a wide variety of tasty baked goods on Saturday. To paraphrase the old Chicago adage about voting, come early and come often.
