Mia,
Thank you for your inquiry. The first mudsale of the season is on Feb. 21 in Honeybrook, Pa. However one that comes highly recommended is the Gordonville, PA mudsale. This particular mudsale will be held on March 14.
Although there are mudsales taking place throughout February, March, and April. The comment concerning Gordonville is it "is the biggest. Lots of fun......lots of antiques, tools, food carriages and buggies." Just a friendly reminder, if you do go to a mudsale be sure to dress accordingly. Someone attended two years ago and their feet actually sank in the mud, in fact, she almost walked out of her shoes, they were so stuck.
Also no tax is charged either do to the fact it is for a volunteer company. Hope this helps,

Mia - no doubt about Gordonville being the biggest. Since you just missed Honeybrook's, Strasburg's is coming up on Saturday, February 28th. While not as large as G-ville we have a large following. And MUD as Ann described in her response!!

Have fun.
