Neighborhood Yard Sale Days – June 5th/6th!

Hello Neighbors!

Are you thinking about clearing out some of that clutter as you tackle Spring cleaning? Well, we’ve got just the thing! (Speaking of Spring cleaning – a big THANK YOU to those of you who participated in this year’s Great American Cleanup – we’ll be posting photos from the event soon).

This year Ladera West will be starting an annual “Neighborhood Yard Sale Days.”  The idea is that if we all have sales on the same day(s) we can generate much more traffic (and make more $)!  LWNA will be advertising the neighborhood-wide yard sales for Friday and/or Saturday, June 5th/6th.  We’ll post this on the marquee signs, on this website, on www.nextdoor.com, as well as post an ad on Craigslist closer to the date.  You can also help spread the word!

We’re also looking into getting a charity to pick up any unsold items folks may want to donate – if you’d be interested, please post a comment so we’ll know if this would be worthwhile.  Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 5th/6th!
