Begun in 2014, Yard Sales Days continues as a volunteer effort typically held the weekend around the Summer Solstice in June. This event helps people find new-to-them treasures and clean out usable household items from the neighborhood. The event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

In 2021, Yard Sales will team up with the Garden Walk and also the Home Tour to maximize on the foot traffic in the neighborhood that weekend! Locations of Yard Sales that participate are featured on a map available at local shops and at all sale sites.

Again this year we will have a Tailgate Sale, on Saturday only, where you sell items out of the trunk of your car.  This sale is specifically targeted for folks who are renters or apartments dwellers who do not have a yard or garage to sell from like homeowners do.  Also typically, they do not have a lot of stuff to sell, so can pack their items into their car or van and sell from that. Bring your own table and chair if you wish.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Gib Ahlstrand for more information. Also, advance notices for registration will be on the ppe-list. Neighbors can register if planning a garage or yard sale on this weekend. The coordinated effort is advertised within and outside the Prospect Park and East River Road neighborhoods.

Registration Fee: Yard Sale - $8; Tailgate Sale - $4 (required, covers advertising/printing costs and gets your sale on the map flyer). Cash or check payable to Prospect Park Association. To register, deliver or send fee to Gib Ahlstrand, 50 SE Barton Ave. (secure mailbox) or call, 612-379-1338. Deadline: Tuesday, June 18, 6 p.m. You will receive a receipt and more information and tips. Please include your e-mail address, street address, and short list of typical items for sale, which you can update later as time for sale draws near.

Registrant's Locations:  will be shown on a map flyer (no other personal information will be released), and a line of text describing items you have for sale will be included. You will get 25 flyers to hand out at your sale. Our permanent Yard Sale/Garden Walk signs will be posted along major streets in the PP neighborhood the week before the sale. Yard Sale participants who sell on one of the two days, specify which one in your registration.

Ads: Will run in the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press websites, The Highland Villager, and The St. Anthony Park Bugle, and the map flyer will be available at local businesses.
