How much cash is in your attic?

Gather your unwanted furniture, clothes, art, household items and register to have your address included in our neighborhood- wide Attic/Garage/Yard Sale! Hundreds of eager buyers attend every year and with the use of social media we can reach even more. In fact, within the first week of being posted, we’ve had over 6000 people interested in our Attic Sale Event on Facebook!

The plan

We have made it easy to sign up, but here are a few things to remember when participating:

  1. It is EXTREMELY important that all participants have at least 50% of there merchandise on display and ready to be sold by 9:00am. For this event we are more than just vendors - we are ambassadors for Boston-Edison. Not only do we represent our individual households, but we are representing the goodwill and professionalism of our entire neighborhood. When we invite guests to come and shop our wares we have a responsibility to start at the advertised time. Many drive a long way to get a "first crack" at the items, so you need to open on time at 9:00am and be ready to do business.
  2. Please pick-up your Attic Sale Kit from 150 Longfellow between 4:00pm and 7:00pm on either Thursday (Aug 10th) or Friday (Aug 11th). The Kit will include: one lawn sign, maps, and a mylar balloon.
  3. Remember to HAVE FUN! Play music, offer cold water, and talk with your customers!
