Emerson Yard Sale (Sat. 5/4/13)

Updated 4/25/13: The annual Emerson Community Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, May 4th from 8 am - 12 pm in the parking lot of the Emerson Clubhouse/Pool (8400 Upper Sky Way, Laurel, MD 20723).

The event is being advertised in local newspapers and will be held rain or shine.

Selling of items is open to residents of Emerson and if you wish to participate, the coordinator (Robyn) asks that you come out between 7 am - 7:30 am to help set up. (She requests that everything be ready when the event starts rather than trying to set up after the shoppers arrive.)

There are a few tables but if you have your own please bring it.

From the organizer, Robyn (4/25/13): 
  • After you have unloaded your cars, please park your vehicles along the side by the tennis courts. I am anticipating a lot of participants, both sellers and buyers. 
  • Advertisements have been placed with the Patuxent Publishing (Columbia Flier, Laurel Leader, Howard Co Times), the banner will be up in front of the Clubhouse, and signs will be placed at the major intersections into /around Emerson. The event will also be listed on Craigslist, as usual. 
  •  Please feel free to spread the word to any organizations you may belong to, more shoppers-- more the merrier. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. 
Some suggestions: 
  • Bring plenty of change and might want to bring plastic/shopping bags for buyers. 
  • We will be shutting down the event promptly at noon on Sat. so please make arrangements to pack your items, should they not they not sell.
