Great Brookland Yard Sale is April 19

We're not sponsors but announce this event as a public service.

Announcing the Great Brookland Yard Sale, April 19, 2008

Come to Brookland on April 19, 2008 for the Great Brookland Yard Sale. Households throughout the Brookland neighborhood have joined together to hold yard sales on that Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. In addition to the individual yard sales, St. Anthony of Padua’s Church on 12th Street NE will be participating as well, with a yard sale in the church’s parking lot.

In joining together for the Great Yard sale, Brooklanders are inviting people from all over the Washington metro area to come to Brookland for a day of fun and great bargains. Andrew Fortin, an organizer of the event said, “With all of these yard sales going on at once, there’s no telling what treasures you’ll find! And, at the same time, we also want to showcase Brookland as a great D.C. neighborhood with a lot to offer.”

Yard sale organizers have posted a blog ( with complete information on the Great Brookland Yard Sale, including a map of the area with participating homes highlighted, and information on some of the items that will be for sale. This information will be updated frequently as the sale approaches.
