The Mother of All Yard Sales!
Mark your calendar and set your alarm clock - you do not want to miss this mega-event!
The Union Square Association (USA) is hosting a community sidewalk sale on Saturday, May 14, 2011 from 8 AM to 12 noon.

Sales tables and special features will be set up in the park... PLUS even more bargains can be found in front of the historic homes throughout the neighborhood.

UPDATE: a map showing all Union Square participating locations has been added to this article. Click here: MAP

This is much more than just a sale of items from a single household. Multiple homes from all over Union Square will offer hundreds of treasures. You'll find just what you're looking for and - better yet - you'll find things you didn't even know you needed! Bring your friends so you all can share in the fun. For more information, please email

After the community sidewalk sale, stick around and celebrate the 164th birthday of the Union Square park. From 1 PM until 2 PM, in commemoration of this event, 164 cupcakes/ice cream sandwiches will go to the first 164 people... and when they're gone - they're gone! (Rain date is the next day: Sunday, May 15, 2011)

Note to the residents of Union Square:
Time is running out if you haven't already signed up to participate! If your spring cleaning has revealed treasures in need of a new home, come join us for a spot in the park or set up in front of your house. To become a part of this event, please contact Cari Schemm at We are expecting a HUGE crowd!
