Saturday, October 12th, 2019
(rain date: Sunday, October 13)
10am to 2pm
The Garrett Park Women's Club is pleased to announce the annual Attic in the Street town wide street sale.
The sale will be held on Saturday, October 12th, from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m (rain date: October 13).
INFORMATION ABOUT ATTIC IN THE STREET:
Attic in the Street is a town wide garage sale held annually in the fall. It takes place on Kenilworth Avenue, between Strathmore and Oxford. That block of the street is closed to cars during the sale. In addition to garage sale items, there are usually local artists selling arts and crafts, and there will be snacks and baked goods for sale by the Garrett Park Nursery School and the Scouts. There's always a big turnout, so it's a great chance to see some neighbors, get some bargains, and support local groups.
A CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS:
We'll need some volunteers to help during the setup period (8am-10am, arrive 7:45am), and some to help with cleanup from 2-3pm. If you've helped in previous years and would like to help again, great; if not but you'd like to help this year, also great. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
to let me know you'd like to help.

When you arrive to unload, we ask that you follow the directions of the Attic Parking Staff and unload as quickly as possible so that you can move your car immediately out of the way to allow others to unload.
