Big Yard Sale at Crispus Attucks! this Saturday!

I'll be at the open studio of the washington glass school this saturday, but i would like to encourage everyone to hit up on the Crispus Attucks Yard Sale. This is a wonderful event in a FANTASTIC park. ( if you care to do both.. please come to the glass school event! but definitely Crispus Attucks)

Friends of Crispus Attucks Park:

Several of you have mentioned that you were interested in selling at this year's Bloomingdale Community Yard Sale in Crispus Attucks Park, but hadn't signed up because you didn't want to have to haul everything back home that you weren't able to sell.

Well, we have some good news! Mike Pietch, owner of Pietch Moving, is offering to haul to Goodwill items that people don't want to carry back home with them. If you're interested, please just keep a few things in mind:
-CADC will be asking for a small monetary donation (probably about $10) from those who wish to take advantage of this service.
-Goodwill will not accept just anything, so you should be selective in what you bring to the Yard Sale.
-If your unsold items are deemed inappropriate for Goodwill, there will be a dumpster available, however, it has limited capacity, so we cannot 100% guarantee there will be room for everything.
-Leaving any unsold items in the Park or its surrounding alleys or streets is strictly prohibited.
-We'll need you to help load your items into the truck; we don't have enough volunteers to do this ourselves.
-We will not be able to provide you with a receipt from Goodwill for the donation.

We hope this makes it easier for some people to sell this year.

But hurry, the Yard Sale and Health Fair event is THIS Saturday, May 17th. Registering to sell is just $35 -- a bargain since we do all the promotion and advertising for you (including Washington Post, DC North, City Paper, Craig's List, listserves, Yard Sale sites, posters, banners, and flyering around the neighborhood and around town).

For Registration Form and Flyer, visit Questions, email, or call 202-550-2631.
