The Longfellow Community Association is pleased to announce its community-wide neighborhood sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 22.

But if you’re looking to get a spot or have your space listed in this first-ever event, you must pay a fee of $10 by Friday, May 3.

Residents from any neighborhood can participate in the bazaar and local
residents are encouraged to either join the bazaar, pay an
administrative fee to have their location listed on the event map or
just set up shop in their yards. Fees are tax deductible and go to the association’s promotion and administrative costs. Sellers keep all proceeds.

The three-pronged sale will feature a bazaar in the Community Lot at Martin Luther King Jr. Way and 39th Street, a map (available on the website and at the lot) to sponsored locations and even more unsponsored sales that will take place in the community. This one-of-a-kind event also will feature a books-only booth benefiting the LCA, a free plant exchange (bring one, take one), food and family fun.

“What better way to organize a sale than to do it all at once?” LCA president Leslie Cleaver Wood said. “This will be a great chance to meet neighbors and clean out that garage at the same time.”


The Longfellow Community Association was formed in early 2010 with the goal of providing an arena for residents to meet neighbors and exchange information and to strengthen a dynamic and diverse community. The association holds regular meetings and continually organizes projects that benefit the neighborhood. Longfellow spans from 52nd street to Highway 580 (north to south) and from Adeline Street to Highway 24 (west to east).

To participate and for more information, call (510) 910-9049.
