How often do you ever see a garage sale in new york? I would estimate about a good 90% of new yorkers have never seen a garage sale, other than the ones you would see in the movies. What could possibly sold that you cant just buy at a regular store? Tons of items are sold that are slightly used and cheaper than what it would originally be priced; so maybe this is what you need more than anything in this time of a recession. A thanks should be sent out to Stephanie Silhavy who first put it together, who like many women, have a tendency to hold on to some clothes that should have been thrown out, given away or should just never be worn. Life will be a little easier for us this upcoming June 12, from 10am to 6pm there will be a neighborhood wide Sidewalk Sale in various parts of redhook. This is also a nice way to bring the neighborhood together. It starts off with a few shirts that you decide to buy and maybe sell a few things, and you could leave with a BFF...who knows?
To take part is selling some of your own items, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org There are already 26 families selling from 29 locations.
