PPUABA Stoop Sales

Our Fall 2023 Stoop Sale was held on Sat Oct 21 and Sun Oct 22

A rainy Saturday morning and an iffy Saturday afternoon caused most of our potential stoop sellers (and browsers) to wait it out and set up their tables / look for bargains on Sunday instead.

There were fewer households setting up tables on Sunday than usual at our stoop sales, but all of the stoop sellers reported that sales were good. Park Place neighbor Koreen Valtierra said of her sale "It was great fun! Sold a lot and met some neighbors as well!! A wonderful way to get to know the community!".

Below are photos of Koreen's stoop sale, Maria Leather's, Kai Jordan's, and Den and Marc Gordon's.

We were blessed with great weather - a sunny, crisp cool fall day, with lots of pedestrians out and about browsing the offerings.

Past Stoop Sales

June 4, 2022 Stoop Sale and Plant Share
Our Spring 2022 PPUABA multi-block stoop sale was held Sat, Jun 4th, 2022. We enjoyed gorgeous spring weather and a good turnout of members holding sales and customers attracted by our emails and posts on social media sites. See photos below.

This year, we held our third annual Plant Share on the same date, in front of 302 Park Place. At the Plant Share, neighbors brought plants and/or took plants (it wasn't necessary to bring a plant to take one). Neighbors contributed excess seedlings, cuttings and plants from their gardens, consulted with Growing Our Community coordinator Den Gordon about which plants might do best in their specific growing conditions, and took plants that met their needs. These Plant Share events are a great way to spread the joy of gardening and enable neighbors to connect!

Our Spring 2021 Multi-block Stoop Sale was held Saturday, June 5th, 2021 from 10am-4pm with participation from neighbors on all of our PPUABA blocks. In addition to private sales, the Friends of Underhill Playground, led by Den Gordon, set up a table in front of the playground with all proceeds going toward beautification of the Playground.

The Sterling/Butler Block Association and the Sterling Place Block Association also held stoop sales the same day and and we all publicized each others' stoop sales.

Generous neighbors donated items to sell at the Friends of Underhill Playground table and helped staff the table. In fact, at the end of the day, Den Gordon had more items left than at the start of the day, so she and Marc set up the table on Sunday too. All proceeds go to benefit the playground. IMG 5177

Fall 2020 Stoop Sale
Our Fall Stoop Sale, held Saturday Sept 26, 2020 was a HUGE success! With over a dozen stoop sales across the PPUABA blocks, lots of publicity, nice weather, and people across our neighborhood glad to be outside enjoying street life safely, we had great pedestrian traffic and a friendly vibe among stoop sellers and shoppers.

Below are photos of just a few of our stoop sales.
