The Chester Squirrel is on the run again – this time carrying a Sidewalk Sale banner for Chester’s first annual town-wide End-of-Summer Sidewalk Sale Day on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Beginning at 9 a.m. on the last Saturday of August, start exploring Chester Center shops and galleries for Sidewalk Sale specials. You’ll find unique unframed art at Maple & Main Gallery, antiques at Chester Americana Antiques & Gallery, vintage pieces at Ceramica, apparel at Compass Rose, purses at Lark, and much much more in every shop in Chester. Specials may be indoors or on the sidewalk.

Unique unframed art will be offered at Maple and Main Gallery during the Sidewalk Sale from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Out on the porch and set up inside the gallery, look for art for less because it’s not yet framed.  There will be works by the gallery’s 44 artists on paper, canvas and board; from abstract to traditional; from provocative to playful.

Custom-made frames add a considerable expense to a painting and can restrict buyers from choosing frames that better match their own taste and, of course, some people prefer no frames at all.

While you’re at the gallery, visit the summer show of over 250 works by the gallery artists.

Maple and Main Gallery, One Maple Street, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit mapleandmaingallery.com or the gallery’s Facebook page or Instagram account  or call 860-526-6065.

When you get tired of shopping, find a Sidewalk Sale Special at one of Chester’s restaurants — and then head over to the Chester Fair for more small-town fun.
