If one man’s trash is another man’s Halloween treasure, then treasures abound at a citywide yard sale that is taking over the creative city of West Hollywood on the weekend of Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19. Residents are invited to take part in hosting a sale, visiting with neighbors, and helping the environment by reducing waste. Looking to make some extra cash? Looking for a wig? Furniture? Art? Whether clearing out an attic, decluttering a garage, or searching for secondhand treasures, the weekend promises to be fun for everyone.
“The Citywide Yard Sale is a great way for residents throughout the City to clean-out garages and storage spaces and pass along usable household items so they’re not thrown away and headed to a landfill,” said West Hollywood Councilmember Lauren Meister. “It will also be a fun way to make some extra cash, hang out with neighbors, and build community!”
The City of West Hollywood will provide a listing of registered yard sales with locations and hours of all participants on the City’s website, free of charge. Buyers can map their shopping ahead of schedule and sellers don’t have to spend time posting signs. Participation does not count against the City’s limit of two garage sale permits per year.
To register a yard sale, residents must visit West Hollywood City Hall, located at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard, 2nd Floor, to complete a Yard Sale Registration form. Participants will be asked to provide proof of residency and must register by Friday, August 10, 2018 in order to be included in Citywide Yard Sale participant list. A list of locations will be posted at www.weho.org/citywideyardsale during the week of August 13.
