garage saleKALAMAZOO, Mich.- (Feb. 22, 2014)- You can’t ever say there’s nothing to do on the west side of the Mitten State or bargains to be had. Who said it’s too cold for a garage sale? Not me!

Thousands of people will flood the doors at the 18th Annual Garage Sale Art Fair in Kalamazoo, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kalamazoo Expo Center. More than 120 artists will bring pieces of work they are ready to part with on Saturday, Feb. 22. This includes new items and beyond, also, for extremely discounted prices. There is a $5 cover charge. The selection is best in the morning, the artists tell me, but you get the best deals toward the end of the day.

Is indoor fun for the family, a little more your speed? Jester’s Court is offering those who say they are FOX17 Smart Shoppers, a 20 percent discount on admission through Feb. 28.
