Yard sale, Sunday 21st May – what is where!

P1090355Here’s what you’ll find happening and being sold between 2 and 5pm on Sunday, 21st May at our popular annual Colonies Yard Sale.  This list is of the streets running from west (Stockbridge end) to east (towards Canonmills). Don’t forget to bring bags and baskets for your surprise purchases!  There might even be a few last minute additions so look out for the balloons!  And if you have time, nip in to Glenogle Swim Centre for a free health check!

We’re delighted to have a totally new event this year, a clever Faerie Trail for younger visitors… look for the plan at each end of the Colonies and at the tombola stall at 19 Hugh Miller Place. Every child who finds the magic solution will be awarded a little prize!

And, we’ve just been given a very generous prize for the tombola by the Olive Branch Bistro in Broughton Street – a voucher for a meal for 2!
