Sullivan’s Gulch Neighborhood Garage Sale 7/17

It's right around the corner and up the block! The annual Sullivan's
Gulch Neighborhood Garage Sale will be Saturday, July 17th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you have stuff to sell, then join your neighbors on July 17 when the entire Sullivan’s Gulch neighborhood becomes a destination for bargain seekers. This is not your usual “multi-family” sale. The goal is to create a network of individual garage sales all hosted on the same day at the same time. The Gulch will be humming with activity.

Here’s how it works: Register your sale with the Sullivan’s Gulch Neighborhood Association (SGNA) for a $10 fee. You host the sale at your own house (or team up with a neighbor). We provide buyers with a list of garage sale sites and a map with locations highlighted. You keep the proceeds of your sale! To participate contact Howard Aaron at 2344 NE Multnomah St., 503-816-2742. or to register your sale by 6 pm on Thursday, July 15.

Sign up today and be part of great Gulch tradition!!
