Neighbors and strangers enjoyed finding bargains on a cool and showery Saturday, making our fourth annual neighborhood garage sale another huge success.
Perhaps because our neighborhood had the most dots on the city’s citywide garage-sale map, shopper traffic was heavy.
A total of 46 Monta Loma households had registered to participate. Some registered on the Monta Loma list and map, others on the citywide site, and some on both lists. Other neighbors posted their addresses and offerings on the neighborhood email list on the day of the sale, bringing the total participants well above 50.
Many neighbors contributed items to Joan’s sale that benefited the Community Health Awareness Council (CHAC). Others donated the profits of their sales, making the total raised for CHAC the highest ever.
