Posts Tagged ‘#DanforthEast Yard Sale’

It’s not too late to sign-up to sell, and it’s not too early to plan all of your buys. Once again, we’ve partnered with the Danforth Mosaic BIA so not only are the residents holding sales, but many businesses are too!

In fact, the BIA has organized to have activities and entertainment along the Danforth so there will be fun for everyone that day!

#DanforthEast Yard Sale & Sidewalk Sale
June 9, 2018, 8:00am-2:00pm
**Rain or shine**

To check out the big map or to sign up for your own sale, click here.

Please note that yard sales can only be added if you live in the DECA area (plus a few blocks on some sides). We would love to include all east-enders but as volunteers, we just can’t manage an area bigger than this one to administer. The Sidewalk Sale goes all the way to Jones though!

The event is rain or shine so fingers crossed that our perfect streak of weather continues!

Get your haggle on, neighbours. 

165+ individual yard sales.  Multiple street sales.  Epic sidewalk sale. One neighbourhood. 

Is the rain going to stop us? Nope. (only 20% or less chance of rain from 8am on)

Click here to plan your shopping using our big map. If you check out the participants on the map you can see what they’re selling.

Special shout out to the legendary street sales:

  • Barker Ave
  • East Lynn
  • Cedarvale
  • Coleridge
  • Gatwick

And thanks to the Mosaic BIA for organizing their Danny Loves a Deal sidewalk sale from 10am-6pm on the same day as our yard sale. More people. More shopping. More awesomeness!

Let’s do this!

And if you see Bruce Cooper, give him a big high five because he’s the guy who brought this idea to DECA 4 1/2 years ago and he’s the guy who organizes this every year. Thank you, Bruce!

While most DanforthEasters know about DECA’s events, how many really know what DECA is? A little refresher: we are a resident’s association. We are powered by volunteers, membership dollars and a lot of hope and optimism about our neighbourhood.  We are not business owners, nor are we a traditional non-profit with a Board and staff and an office. We do have a Board but no staff or office. We’re neighbours working together and the list below is a testament to the power of community and positive thinking!

As you peruse the DECA events for this month, think about officially joining DECA. Membership fees pay for our operating expenses and allows us to implement great ideas like you see listed here.

To sign up for a DECA membership, drop by the DECA table at the market on Thursdays all summer long, or click here to join online. It only costs $10/year per household. (Members must live within our borders – Main/ Mortimer/ Monarch Park/ train tracks)
