Where Bay State Village comes together

2023 Annual BSVA Tag Sale June 3-4

It’s time to get ready for the Bay State Village Association neighborhood-wide tag sale/yard sale/garage sale/stoop sale!  

This year’s sale will take place June 3-4, 2023. The event draws many folks to our village.  It’s also a great time to put out a free pile if that’s more your thing.  

We place an ad in the Gazette and on Craigslist, and we generate a map that is distributed at Greg’s Auto Repair at Nonotuck@Riverside.

Sign up here to get your address on the map!

Want to do your sale for one day only? Both days? No problem.  There’s plenty of traffic both days.  

To help support our community and social activities, we traditionally ask that you donate 10% of your proceeds to the BSVA Scholarship Fund or to the BSVA Mill River Water Safety Testing program. Please send your tax-deductible donation to: Norman Spencer, BSVA Treasurer, 26 Nutting Ave, Florence, MA 01062

Speed Tables have arrived!

Great news! On Friday, October 18 from 7:00 AM until 5 PM speed tables will be installed on Riverside Drive.  The roadway will be closed for a short distance between Norwood Avenue and Federal Street.  There will be detours in place.  Police officers will be present and emergency services have been notified.

The installation of speed tables has been a 10-year effort, and we are hopeful that it will slow traffic down on Riverside.

So after Friday be sure to allow yourself and extra 10 to 20 seconds to get to work, any appointments, etc!
