The fanciest garage sale you’ll ever attend will be held this weekend over in Harbor Country. The Designer's Guild of Southwest Michigan Inaugural Garage Sale benefiting the Robert R. McCormick Boys & Girls Club takes place May 28-29 from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. Vintage furniture, collectibles, art, clothing, and jewelry from top area designers (and Merchandise Mart showrooms) will be featured. Admission is $5. A private preview party is Friday, May 27, 5-7 p.m. Tickets are $75 and include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, silent auction items, as well as early access to the sale items. (601 W. Buffalo St., New Buffalo, 773-271-8400 ext. 4308). And if you’re in Michigan on Saturday, check out UnSanctioned, a big street party in Buchanan, where there are several great interiors stores to check out.
