Get ready for the Community Yard Sale on Saturday, May 6!
*Start gathering your treasures NOW to sell on May 6th. Plan how you are going to display your items and price them before the sale day.
*The civic association will advertise the CW Yard Sale but you can do posters or place your own ad on Craig’s List, etc. to direct customers to your specific house.
*Have two people working your site – you’ll need bathroom breaks!
*Possible light rain? Use your garage or a tent on your driveway.
*If you have only a few items, you can go in with one or two nearby neighbors to make a bigger showing. Or you can take items before Saturday (and get a tax deductible receipt) to Tammy and Kathy’s yard sale at 8503 Queen Elizabeth (703-425-1249); they will continue their tradition of donating the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
*YES, you can have a bake sale/lemonade stand to draw customers!
*Don’t forget to decide in advance what you’ll do with stuff that doesn’t sell. (If your trash service is American Disposal, and you want to get rid of several large items, see the posting about the American Disposal Bulk Trash Pick up Day on May 13th.)
