I’m not gonna lie, seeing that the date has been set for this years’ Great Brookland Yard Sale made me so happy – a warm weather event to look forward to! For those of you unaware, the GBYS is a set date for Brookland residents to host concurrent yard sales. The GBYS is organized by the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association (BNCA) and is a great event for the whole neighborhood. It brings people from across the city into Brookland to see what a great community we have, it gets us out and about to meet our neighbors, and those who have yard sales get rid of stuff and make a little bit of money. We recently learned from a BNCA email that this year, the GBYS will take place on Saturday, May 5th. Also note, the Greater Brookland Garden Club always hosts its annual plant sale on the same day. That sale is located at 12th and Newton and they sell a wide variety of plants (Annuals, Perennials, Natives, Vegetables, Herbs, and Tropicals). We will let you know when yard sale registrations begin.
