Deadline: Tuesday May 15 at 7 PM!
If you would like to have a garage or yard sale please let us know by sending your name and the address of your sale to KFNARummageSale@gmail.com.
The sales will be held on: Saturday, May 19, 9 AM to 2 PM
As in years past, we will place signs throughout the neighborhood letting everyone know about the sale! Due to a change in staffing we will not be publishing nor distributing printed maps this year and instead we will create an electronic version of the map showing the location of everyone’s sales and publish it on Kingfield social media (website, Facebook page, Twitter, and NextdoorKingfield). We hope this change in service still meets your needs, and you use this collective day to rid your home of unused items and clear out your garage!
There is no fixed cost to participate in the Kingfield Community Yard Sale this year, but we do still expect and encourage you to make a donation to KFNA in the range of $10-20 per household for coordinating the details of this event and advertising it. Donations can be made on the KFNA website at kingfield.org (see the “Donate” button on the right side of the home page) or by mailing a check to KFNA at 3754 Pleasant Ave S #101, MPLS, MN 55409. Donations to KFNA, a nonprofit organization, can be written off as allowed by law.
The tour is entirely outside, and will last approximately 45 minutes. It is important to dress appropriately. We recommend clothing to allow confort in the outdoors, and rain boots or old shoes that can get dirty. Conditions can be muddy or dusty depending on the weather. Anyone who is sensitive to dust or who has physical limitations with walking on uneven surfaces should keep this in mind. Hard hats will be provided, safety vests and safety glasses for all.
Tour participants will see firsthand how food waste and yard waste are turned into environmentally beneficial compost. They will get an up close look at the equipment in operation and a detailed explanation of the process from start to finish. Questions are encouraged.
If you are interested in attending please contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!
