Reduce your environmental footprint one strategy at a time.

Have a stoop sale

Posted on | July 31, 2009 | No Comments

A stoop sale gives you a Quadruple Whammy:


    1. You get rid of junk.
    2. You can find a new home for the things you no longer have a use for.
    3. You can schmooze with the neighbors (bonus points if you augment your stoop sale with a bake sale).
    4. Make a few bucks!

 You can increase your audience by teaming up with neighbors or even make it a block party event.  Here are 6 tips to a successful stoop sale from NY Magazine.  

If you’d prefer to shop than host (and you live in Brooklyn), check out before you head out shopping for treasures on the weekend.  

If flea markets are more your thing, check out Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene on Saturdays and under the Brooklyn Bridge on Sundays.
