ANA Annual Event
Neighborhood-Wide Garage Sale
When: Saturday, May 2, 2015  •  8:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
Where: All over Allandale

Spring Cleaners: You’re determined to organize the garage, storage shed, closets, kitchen cabinets, book cases, even the dreaded junk drawer. You’re letting go of old Star Wars action figures, Instamatic cameras, and empty Pez dispensers. But don’t just toss them, sell them! Set aside your unwanted goodies and get ready for Allandale’s neighborhood-wide garage sale. If you have only a few items, get together with your neighbors for a one-stop shop on your block!

To Participate: Allandale residents, please send your name, address, phone#, email address, and a short list of sale items by April 25 to allandale.neighborhood [Email address: allandale.neighborhood #AT# - replace #AT# with @ ]. You can list specific items like “golf clubs, china cabinet, electric wok” or just a general category like “household goods.” If you haven’t already joined ANA, you can do so online via PayPal at or send your $7 or $15 check to ANA, P.O. Box 10886, Austin, TX 78766-1886. Then get ready to set up your sale on May 2 before the early birds arrive.

Locations and items will be included on a Google Map and participants will get a spiffy ANA Garage Sale yard sign. The sale will be advertised on ANA’s website, Facebook page, on local listservs, Craigslist, etc. If you have any questions, call Kata Carbone at 512-454-6571 (please leave your name and number) or send email to allandale.neighborhood [Email address: allandale.neighborhood #AT# - replace #AT# with @ ].

Treasure Hunters: Are you looking for the #13 Chewbacca, the Instamatic 404, or the Pear Crazy Fruit Pez dispenser to complete your collections? There is no telling what you’ll find at Allandale’s neighborhood-wide garage sale. Just consult the Google Map of garage sale locations to plan your route—the map link will be posted at on April 25.

NOTE: Since the April Allandale Neighbor newsletter is so late, we'll be accepting garage sale participants throughout next week!
