Menlo Oaks is holding a neighborhood-wide yard sale on Saturday, September 15  from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Driveways and yards for 20-30 homes in Menlo Oaks will be filled with items for sale — and for free — in the neighborhoods’s first annual yard sale.

Sponsored by Menlo Oaks District Association (MODA), the yard sale will span 10 streets, including Menlo Oaks Drive, Berkeley Avenue, Colby Avenue, Peninsula Way, Arlington Way, Madison Way and parts of Coleman Avenue, Bay Road, Ringwood Avenue and Bay Road.

Some of the neighborhood’s children will host lemonade and cookie stands, too.

A map of the yard sale area would have been helpful for those of us not familiar with Menlo Park. Thanks.

You raise a very good point, and we did have a map of Menlo Oaks on our website (above), and linked to from our ad to the right of the article. Next time we’ll make sure the wonderful publicity we received for it also has a link to a map of Menlo Oaks. As of about 8:00 a.m, we posted the location of the homes and lemonade stands participating. We also had maps at those locations so that people could take photos on their phones to see where the yard sales were. We decided not to put the locations of the homes participating on the Menlo Oaks map earlier than that for fear someone might come along and take some of the merchandise prior to when the yard sale began at 9:00.

Thanks for your comment, and we will work hard to make it easier for people to find us next year. I hope you were able to find Menlo Oaks.

Judy
