The Red Shed Sale
01291 672276

A monthly sale of the most amazing assortment of second-hand bargains is held on the outskirts of Usk. There are clothes, toys, furniture, china, you name it - it’s like a giant charity shop , only more so. This takes place in the Red Shed in Llanbadoc, next to the rugby club. The shed has, confusingly, been green for many years. But before that, it was red. Contributions are taken every Wednesday morning from 9.30; the sale is the first Tuesday of the month, 10am – 4pm. Proceeds are in aid of nearby St Madoc’s church and surplus stock goes to charity.
