The date is set for this year’s yard sale – Sunday, 19th May from 2-5pm so please mark it in your diary!
If you’re a Stockbridge Colonies resident and would like to set up shop in your garden, please contact this year’s organiser, Sarah on firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and rough idea of what you might be selling or doing on the day. Sellers are given lots of support and encouragement, as it’s a great way to maintain the fantastic community spirit in the Colonies and an ideal way to meet your neighbours, raise funds for charity and/or for yourself and/or to raise your profile if you’re a maker!
This year, instead of balloons to mark participating households, we hope to have new, sustainable, eye-catching banners and lots of bunting decorating the streets and everyone is invited to be creative! This is the ideal opportunity to put that bag of remnants to good use along with pretty bits of plastic, bottle tops, all manner of weatherproof materials which are far too good not to be reused and upcycled! See the photos for some inspiration!
This website has reports of previous years’ events and you can see photos of our many yard sales on our Facebook page.
We look forward to another interesting, fruitful, busy afternoon – and if the sun shines, it’ll be a bonus!
