Warmer days are here and summer is just around the corner, so it’s time to head to Manhattan Beach — but, not before you do some recession shopping at the Avenue Z Garage Sale.
This sidewalk sale operates out of one side of a two-car garage located on Avenue Z between East 18 Street and East 19 Street (across the street from the St. Mark’s School playground). It’s worth the trip just to see this rarely-found-in-Brooklyn residential parking phenomena. And when you have a two-car garage in Brooklyn, what do you do with it? You don’t park in it, of course — you hold a garage sale.
There are all kinds of general merchandise available at this flea market — from books, to toys, to overflowing baskets of kitchen gadgets. It was impossible to miss the main inventory in the garage, but one of the salespeople still pointed to the old LP’s stacked to the ceiling and said, “We have over four thousand records”.
Audiophiles who love the richness of vinyl sound, won’t have to spend a fortune to get their old vintage fix, because prices at this yard sale are too cheap to be displayed. All you need to do is rummage around a little to find some item you’ve been looking for and name your price. They can’t wait to finally clean out that garage!
Here are the details:
