You are invited to Starflower Experiences’ Community Yard Sale at Manor Farm Park. We would like you to join us in this great way to get rid of items no longer needed while raising some extra cash. Not only would you be helping the
earth by reducing how much we throw away, but you would be helping us achieve our educational mission as well! For a $20 donation, you can participate in the yard sale with a 10’ by 10’ portion of the field to sell your own no-longer wanted household items.
Bring your own tables. Download a space reservation flyer here: Yard Sale Reservation form If you have sale items, but don’t want a space, you may donate them for our table (spring only).
If you can volunteer to help us run this event, please let us know. And don't forget to come and shop!
