We received the above notice for a yard garage sale going on this weekend, and since it’s summertime, and last Sunday was a complete washout due to the massive torrential soakage we endured, I thought it seemed like a cool thing to alert people to. And wait, what is this? Oh lookywe’ve written about this particular yard garage sale before. Long live this great neighborhood tradition!

If you think I’ve milked this post about a yard sale enough, just you wait. Here is a music video on YouTube about yard sales. It’s a catchy ditty too.

At least one individual was left seriously injured after a car accident in Manhattan Beach around 9:00 p.m. tonight, according to a Manhattan Beach resident who spoke to police.

The accident occurred on Shore Boulevard between Pembroke Street and Oxford Street, and involved a student from Kingsborough Community College. One of the cars involved was “smashed up” on the side, and Shore Boulevard was closed by police.

This is a breaking story and more information will be posted as it becomes available.

Just one of the homes that participated in May's block-long yard sale

A resident of Oxford Street sent me the following note. It’s the second block-long garage sale they’ve organized this year, the first being in May:

After a hot and humid summer with the 90 to 100 degree weather, some residents of Oxford Street and Pembroke Street in Manhattan Beach are planning to have another garage sale on Saturday, August 28th. The event will run from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with rain date the following day (Sunday, August 29th).

This is a perfect opportunity to clean house, mingle with your neighbors before the summer begins to wind down and turn some of your “excess baggage (and don’t we all have at least some of that?)” into a few useful dollars. So get your things together and put a table or two in front of your house on August 28th.
Looking forward to your participation!

More Street Sales Tomorrow!


When I posted yesterday’s piece about the Ford Street yard/garage sale, I had this nagging feeling that I was forgetting something. In addition to the Ford Street sale, there’s going to be an Oxford Street sale – also a block long – and a sidewalk sale.

On Saturday, May 15, residents a throwing a street wide garage sale on Oxford Street in Manhattan Beach. All are invited to sample wares, compare prices and buy stuff.

In addition to the two yard sales, Sheepshead Bay fixture The Learning Wheel is having their annual sidewalk sale. From test prep materials to toys and games, The Learning Wheel is offering up steep discounts. Located at 1514 Avenue Z, the sale is both Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
