The Great Brookland Yardsale This Saturday

  The annual Great Brookland Yard Sale is finally here.  The yearly neighborhood tradition was started three years ago, and is ready for it's largest group of participants yet (over 50 houses!!!).  The GBYS will begin at 10 AM this Saturday (May 8th) and run until 2 PM.  Attending the GBYS is free of course, and made easier by a much more organized effort than in previous years.  The easiest way to traverse the massive coalition of sellers, is to utilize one of the free maps found at any Sale Participants Table or by stopping by The Menkiti Group's office (official sponser of the GBYS) on the corner of 12th and Evarts Ave NE. The below Google Map can also be used to help direct you from sale to sale (it is the most recent list of all participants)!!  If there is rain the date will shift to Sunday, May 9th. This is a great opportunity to show off our community and the amazing and diverse people who make events like this possible.
Also, if you need a break from your haggling and antique hunting, be sure to stop by Channing St. NE and give a cheer for the Menkiti Group's renovation project for Rebuilding Together of Washington, DC.
