Block-Long Garage Sale Planned On Ford Street

This is not Ford Street. It's a random photo of a yard sale I found on Flickr. Did I need to use it? No. But studies show that including photos increases the chances that an article will be read. Did I trick you?

I don’t know about you, but I love hitting up garage and yard sales. I rarely buy anything, but it gives me a look into other people’s lives; it satisfies the voyeur in me and often I end up feeling less weird than I think I am.

Then I realize I just went to a garage sale for that very peculiar reason, once again confirming that I am, indeed, that weird.

Well, I get to go through this whole cycle of psychosis this weekend, at what sounds like a really neat event. On both Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and 16, the residents of Ford Street between Emmons Ave and Shore Parkway are planning to clean house. The neighbors are pooling together household goods, tools, electronics, Bric-a Brac and clothing.

There are also two or three other sales in the coming weeks we’ll tell you about as we near those dates. If you have a garage or yard sale and would like us to post it, just shoot us an email.
