Serendipity's nearly two-year run on Main Street will culminate with a sidewalk sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday featuring discounts, plus new and special merchandise brought in especially for the store's last sale.

The store opened in the summer of 2016 at 233 Main St. aiming to provide rediscovered, repurposed vintage, antiques and treasures for the home, office and garden. It expanded upstairs last year, adding a selection of vintage clothes.

"I want to be able to travel whenever I want to visit my daughter during her medical residency," owner Nan Rawlins told this news outlet. "I'll be renting a space at the new and soon-to-open Hamilton Corner Antiques at the corner of Millville and Edgewood.
