Our Spring 2023 Stoop Sale and Plant Share will be on Saturday, Jun 3rd

Start gathering up those no-longer-loved items in your closets, at the back of the kitchen cabinets, in your cellar (or wherever) and get ready to set up a table at our spring multi-block stoop sale.

Stoop sales are a way for members to de-clutter, transform those no-longer-loved items into someone else's wonderful find - and (hopefully) get to enjoy sitting at a sidewalk table with nice weather and friendly neighborly conversations.

We will also have our fourth annual Plant Share on the same date, in front of 302 Park Place. At the Plant Share, neighbors can bring plants and/or take plants (it isn't necessary to bring a plant to take one). You can contribute excess seedlings, cuttings and plants from your garden, consult with Growing Our Community coordinator Den Gordon about which plants might do best in your specific growing conditions, and take plants that meet your needs. These Plant Share events are a great way to spread the joy of gardening and enable neighbors to connect!

The block association will publicize the event with emails, social media postings and flyers. In past years we've had great turnouts, so plan to set up a stoop sale table. Or, shop your neighbors' tables to see what treasures you can find! And whether you're a stoop sale seller or buyer, come visit the Plant Share table at 302 Park Place from 10:00am until Noon!

Stoop sale locations will be on all four blocks in PPUABA's footprint - Park Place from Vanderbilt Avenue to Washington Avenue, and Underhill Avenue from Prospect Place to Sterling Place.

Our Fall 2022 Stoop Sale on Saturday, Oct 8th was a great success!

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

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
