(Deadline to register for a booth is April First – No Fooling)
San Jose, CA – February 24, 2014 --- Springtime is house-cleaning time. Right? Well, right, with a little incentive. History San José will host a SpringYard Sale in the Park. It has been said that one person’s junk is another one’s treasure. So start cleaning.
The public is invited to host their own table and sell their wares at the Yard Sale in the Park at History Park, in Kelley Park, on. Host your own booth of used lamps, grandma’s china, toys, and anything else taking up space at home. Booths of wares will be positioned inside the park. The deadline to register for a booth is --- no fooling.
“We love to host events in our own back yard at History Park,” said Juanita Lara, Director of Events of History San José. “The Yard Sale in the Park is a great venue because we have a 14-acre ‘backyard.’”
Even History San José’s Collection Center is getting in on the action. There will be an HSJ book booth, offering duplicate, unuseable, or deaccessioned books for sale, as well as an assortment of other items.
As always, food will be available for purchase, and O’Briens Café in the Pacific Hotel will feature San Jose own’s Treat ice cream. Live music by Fiddle Road and other food vendors will be a part of the Yard Sale event.
Registration must be received by firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 408 918-1045.--- no fooling; booths for non-members are $20 each; booths for members and affiliates of HSJ are free. Entrants must register to sell, and provide their own equipment, tables, chairs, canopies, etc. Register by contacting Juanita at
Memberships are available from $50 by contacting Michelle Powers email@example.com or 408 521-5016.
“The Yard Sale in the Park is better than a garage sale, a block sale, or sitting in your own driveway, added Alida Bray, President and CEO of HSJ. “It’s fun!”
