Pick Of The Day Two: Rae Street Yard Sale

Photo on 2013-08-24 at 09.02 2I’m totally abusing my Powers of a Blog Administrator to let you know about our first (hopefully annual) neighbourhood yard sale on the 2300 block of Rae Street.

On right now!

We have at least five houses participating. More will set up as the morning progresses. And there is a ton of great stuff for cheap.

And even though we’ve blocked the street off (have a permit for it and everything) there is ample parking at both the north and south end of the block.

  1. Come on Wall Street, don’t be slow,
    Why man, this is war au-go-go
    There’s plenty good money to be made
    By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
    But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
    They drop it on the Viet Cong.

    And it’s one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,
    Next stop is Vietnam.
    And it’s five, six, seven,
    Open up the pearly gates,
    Well there ain’t no time to wonder why
    Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.

  2. Well, these inscrutable Cathedral hordes had a really lovely day. Weather couldn’t have been better. And all the kids on the block got to run and bike up and down the street for 12 hours without fear of cars because we’d blocked the road to traffic. My kids, who’ve had baths, are still filthy.

    We got to spend the day with a lot of people we live near but haven’t hung out with, so that was nice. And we had a potluck in the middle of the street that was, just by accident, kind of TexMex themed.

    Anyway, I highly recommend holding a block party. And if anyone wants to know how to get a permit and stuff and what to expect from city hall, email me. It’s dead easy but I’d happily walk you through the steps.
