Announcing the Great Brookland Yard Sale, April 19, 2008

In my house, spring cleaning leads to piles of stuff... stuff that isn't trash but doesn't need to be in my house any longer. The neighbors in Brookland have a great solution for this: the (First Ever) Great Brookland Yard Sale. Save the date and come out for some great finds.

What: Great Brookland Yard Sale.
When: Saturday, April 19, 2008 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m
Where: Map online here.
Households throughout the Brookland neighborhood have joined together to hold yard sales. In addition to the individual yard sales, St. Anthony of Padua’s Church on 12th Street NE will be participating as well, with a yard sale in the church’s parking lot.

Yard sale organizers have posted a blog with complete information on the Great Brookland Yard Sale, including a map of the area with participating homes highlighted, and information on some of the items that will be for sale. This information will be updated frequently as the sale approaches.
For more information contact Andrew S. Fortin.

And for Brookland neighbors, it's not too late to sign up. Take a look in the attic or basement and ask yourself, do you really want to miss this grand event??

  1. Sounds like a fantastic event.

  2. We were amazed at how cheap people were when we participated in a community yard sale. We'd take something that was originally $200 and in mint condition and mark it down to $50 and they'd offer us $5. Yeesh. Then, again, if it's stuff you aren't using anyway, sell it for what you can so it can have a new life. :)

    Or figure out a minimum and be a hard-ass. :) You can always try to sell stuff on e-bay or give it to charity and write off a reasonable value if you don't get the minimum.

    Good luck!
