Saturday June 27th 11am-7pm
Sunday June 28th 11am-5pm
at the Frankfort Amazing Fantasy only
20523 S. La Grange Rd.
Frankfort IL 60423
Let me just say, if you've never ventured out to our annual sidewalk sale, you really should do so. It's a once a year clearance event. We gather misc. overstock and clearance merchandise from all 4 stores, mark it all WAY down and sell it on the SIDEWALK, hence the Annual Sidewalk Sale. You never know what you may find. Usually we have an assortment of 25 cent comics, select graphic novels, lots of manga, action figures, t-shirts, dvd's, statues, Hello Kitty, board games, lots of RPG books, and more! Always worth the trip! In these touch economic times, it's a great way to load up on entertainment without spending a ton of cash!
