It’s not summer in the city without stoop sales, and that’s just what’s happening this weekend. Neighborhood residents are encouraged to swing by and bring their unwanted items to pop-up exhibition space, Site 109 – books, electronics, clothing, knick knacks, and other yard-sale items that could turn from trash to treasure for passersby. The stoop sale will also have summer’s time-honored enterprising tradition – a lemonade stand – as well as children’s activities.

It’s for a good cause, too – a portion of the proceeds is headed towards the Lower East Side Girls Club, an organization aiming to “break the cycle of local poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial, and environmental leaders.” Additionally, interested vendors can pick up a 4 x 4 space for $15, with a portion of the fee earmarked for the above-mentioned organization.

The sale takes place this Saturday, July 12 and Sunday, July 13, from 11am to 5pm, at 109 Norfolk Street (between Rivington and Delancey). Interested vendors can call 212.260.8110, or email info@site109.com.
