Here are the (more than) Five Things for Saturday, September 22, 2012:
Not literally selling insects, thankfully. The General Stanton flea market in Charlestown begins at 8 a.m.
Yard sale! There is a yard sale at 8 a.m. at 293 Willard Avenue in South Kingstown.
A farmers’ market! The University of Rhode Island farmers’ market is at 8:30 a.m. at East Farm.
Another farmers’ market! The Cross Mills farmers’ market meets at 9 a.m. in Charlestown.
Jewelry! The Cool Beans Café on Kingstown Road in Narragansett is hosting a jewelry show at 9 a.m.
Work on your backhand, your serve, your smashing at the net… There is drop-in tennis at the courts at Broad Rock Middle School starting at 9 a.m. The cost is just $3.
Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Hobbit Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).
Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!
Hark, what goes there? On this day in 1888, National Geographic began printing.
The birthday of a princess. Happy 40th birthday to Princess Martha Louise of Norway, who’s fourth in line to the throne.
