OUR ANNUAL BAYWOOD YARD SALE RETURNS SATURDAY, JULY 17TH!

 

Another reason to celebrate this summer: the return of the Baywood Neighborhood Yard Sale on Saturday, July 17th, 10am-2pm!

The annual Baywood Neighborhood Yard sale is coordinated among the Baywood community with the goal of drawing people (from Baywood and beyond) into the neighborhood to find great deals on a wide variety of items.  A map of the neighborhood is published indicating the participating families.

 

This is an opportunity for neighbors to spring clean and help fund summer programs for San Mateo families in need.  Residents can sell items from their front yard or go in with Baywood neighbors at one of their homes.  This event always is a win-win. You can keep what you earn, donate the proceeds to a charity of your choice, or to our program partners, the San Mateo Police Activities League and Samaritan House.

  

Have you wanted to get rid of that set of chairs that don't fit in your family room, or do you have slightly used toys that your kids don't play with anymore? Make a list and plan to participate in the Baywood Annual Yard Sale!  You can sell items from your front yard or go in with Baywood neighbors at one of their homes.

 

We will strictly follow COVID-19 protocols.  So, start planning what you want to sell and what treasures you may be looking for!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sign Up For the Baywood Yard Sale

  • Create a list of the items that will be in your sale;

  • Notify us of your interest in participating no later than July 14th by sending an email to: baywoodhomeowners@gmail.com  so we can include you on the Baywood Yard Sale Map. 

  • Please include your name, address, telephone number, email, the summary list of items you want to sell and what you want to do with your proceeds.  

       Tips For Success

  • Price each item in advance that you will include in your sale;

  • Only price items in whole dollar amounts (e.g. $1 vs. $1.50);

  • Be prepared to make change. Our suggestion would be to initially have approximately $40 in one- and five-dollar bills;

  • Be prepared for buyers to show up before the advertised start time of the sale. This can be annoying but manageable.  Remember the time of the sale (10am-2pm) has been advertised and there is no need to start early if you choose not to;

  • Though the pandemic is waning, masks and social distancing are still recommended.

 

Your Baywood Owners Improvement Association (BOIA) Board will:

  • Collect your information and consolidate it with other yard sale participants.

  • Publish the list and advertise the sale on Facebook, Nextdoor, Craigslist, etc.  a few days before the actual event. 

  • Use the information provided to generate a map of Baywood showing the location of each sale and make these available the day of the sale.

  • Put up banners to promote the Baywood Yard Sale and spotlight it on social media and our website to get people excited about it.

 

Post-Sale:

You can keep what you earn, or donate the proceeds to a charity of your choice, or to our program partners, the San Mateo Police Activities League and Samaritan House.

It’s likely that you will not sell all the things that you set out. There are places that will take donations for many of the things that you may still want to get rid of, some offering pickup.  Examples of these include:

  • Salvation Army

  • Parca

  • Goodwill

For those homeowners that choose to donate all or a portion of their sale proceeds to a meaningful nonprofit charity, we will acknowledge their donations in our next newsletter.  Please let us know so we can thank you!

It's super easy and fun to participate.  Please share this event with your friends and neighbors and encourage them to sign up as well.

Many thanks, and we look forward to seeing you, your friends and Baywood neighbors on Saturday, July 17th, 10am-2pm, for a fun and successful Baywood Yard Sale to celebrate our wonderful neighborhood!
