Overlook Yard Sale & Free Share

The 2018 Overlook Yard Sale will be held Saturday 7/21 with the Free Share to follow on Sunday 7/22.

Doing some spring cleaning and noticing some items you’re ready to part with? Thinking you might want to do a yard sale this summer? Well, then mark your calendars for this year’s Overlook Yard Sale & Free Share, July 21st and 22nd.

As we’ve been doing it for the past 7 years, set up shop in your yard or garage on Saturday the 21st. By organizing our yard sales as a neighborhood on the same day with coordinated advertising we attract more visitors…and buyers! We also get a chance to get to know our neighbors while decluttering our homes.

Then, on Sunday the 22nd, we’ll do the Free Share in which anyone can put items curbside, such as the stuff that didn’t sell the day before, and offer it up as free to neighbors. In this way we part with unused items, extend their lifecycles, and spare them from the landfill.


As always, we will advertise for the participating households online and will provide an interactive map that shows the households that plan to participate.  See last year’s map below as an example of what to expect:


Want to sign up?  Fill out the form below and you’ll automatically be registered to be shown on the map and to receive a message or two leading up to the event with any important details.

Through reuse we are helping to minimize our neighborhood’s waste stream as well as reminding each other of the inherent value and embodied energy that all of these material “things” possess.

Every year lots of great deals abound as we turn unwanted items into newfound treasures.  Mark your calendars and come on out!
