Labor Day Weekend: Tampa Bay Salvage
Labor Day marks the end of summer, and many big box retailers celebrate with sales. So check out all the usual suspects for deals on mattresses, electronics and appliances. But also keep it local at Tampa Bay Salvage's End of Summer Sale, happening Saturday-Monday. The architectural salvage, picker's paradise has two locations, one in Palm Harbor and the other in Dade City. And all weekend, at both locations, it's a party, with live reggae music, a complimentary taco bar from Tacos Flacos & Cantina, free Coronas and drinks, a bounce house and snow cones. Not to mention that the owners have just returned from a picking trip, so there will be lots of new inventory for their Red Tagged sale, with select items up to 60 percent off. They're open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. all three days, at 4825 Alt. U.S. 19, Palm Harbor, and 37832 Meridian Ave., Dade City. tampabaysalvage.com.
