Third Annual Citywide Yard Sale This Saturday:

Anyone can go to the website – www.smgov.net/r3 – to view an interactive map with all sales happening on the day.

Shoppers will be able to search for sales by street, neighborhood, multi-family sales, sale category, and “notable” items identified by sellers.

When you click on a marking, the website will display which categories are available such as antiques, appliances, books, clothing, electronics, furniture, jewelry, and toys.

After residents and organizations finish selling their treasures at the end of the day, they are encouraged to survey what is leftover and determine what can be donated to local organizations using the Reuse Resource List available online (same website listed above).
