I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in doing some spring cleaning with a hugh neighborhood street sale. I noticed while walking around last week that parking enforcement is starting to give tickets to cars parked on the street so now would be a great time to clear some junk from the garage for all those who have more than one car. No parking signs will soon be posted on all the streets (confirmed by Mattamy).
If there is enough interest, I would be willing to take responsibility for advertising, posting signs etc. Post your interest here or email me at paris2008@hotmail.com and also tell your neighbors. If you live in the condos, post a notice on the notice board.

great idea - we're interested! re: no parking signs... would you happen to know if this is for overnight parking, or for any parking in general? any idea as to when this will take effect?

I have seen tickets given out on Winkler, Deans and Ferguson. I believe that the no parking signs will be no parking at any time. The streets were made narrow specifically for this reason. They did not want people parking cars on the street.

I'm going to post some flyers next week so that people can email to let me know if they are interested in being part of this neighborhood street sale. Ion what street are you on so that I can start mapping out interested parties? I'm on Winkler.

I'm going to post a notice next week around the neighborhood on the mailboxes and will list my email for anyone who might want to do this. It could be an annual event.
There is this hugh street sale in Hamilton every summer and people actually camp out the night before to set up because the turn out is so big. I know I have a lot of stuff I want to get rid of. I can't imagine no one else in the neighborhood would be interested.

Ok, so I've posted some signs around the neighborhood and we'll have to wait and see if anyone is interested. So far expressed interest on Ayers, Winkler, Ferguson and Pethick. That's a pretty good start. Smile Cheers!

So I've been able to round up a couple of interested parties and it looks like it might just end up being a 3 to 4 family sale on our driveway which I guess would be find as long as I can get rid of some of the stuff that we have. Kent, you could just bring over whatever you want to sell and I'll sell it for you.

Ok, so now we have interest from Howe as well and some more people emailed me but I don't know what street. I will be posting new signs tomorrow (if it doesn't rain) that there WILL BE a street sale June 25th and a week before the event I'll post big signs at the intersection of StClair/Warden and also at the enterance of Fairfax and Warden. I already posted an ad on Kijiji. Don't worry, people WILL COME!
