2nd Annual Citywide Yard Sale
Free, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Helping the environment has never been so easy as the City of Santa Monica hosts its 2nd Annual City-wide Yard Sale this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cruise around the city for bargains and go green by reducing waste and keeping valuable resources out of the landfill. The annual yard sale not only helps Santa Monica residents clear out their attics and overflowing storage spaces, but also gives a chance to anyone from Santa Monica and across the Southland to search for secondhand treasures. Reusing items is one of the smartest ways to reduce waste. The list of participants has been continually updated throughout this week.
