Borough-wide yard sale set for Aug. 4 in Brentwood

Looking for a baby crib or book cases for your college-bound son or daughter?

Well, the residents of Brentwood Borough — all 1.45 miles of it — might have some bargains for you.

From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 4, the Brentwood Historical Society is sponsoring its third annual All-Boro Yard Sale.

Residents will be selling everything from children’s clothes to appliances to antiques.

“We’re compiling a list,” said Audrey Abbott Iacone, past president of the historical society and one of the event organizers.

“So far we have around 40 addresses.”

Participating addresses will be available at the Brentwood Public Library, 3501 Brownsville Road.

“We’re starting at 8 a.m. because people like getting to yard sales early,” she said.

And like last year, the historical society is renting 10-foot spaces in front of the library on Brownville Road for $20 each.

“It’s nice for people to have a lot of spaces to stop because they are looking for different things,” Iacone said.

”You never know what you may find.”

And about the weather?

“Rain or shine, we’re having it,” she said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
