OPINION: Citywide Yardsale anyone?

Last year Ocean City did not hold the City Wide Yard Sale at the Tabernacle neither in the spring or the fall.  The reasoning was that tainted merchandise might be sold at these events.

Other shore towns continued holding their sales with no problem.  Ocean City has no plans to hold this event this year as well.  When you think of all the activities that bring people into town to shop and eat, this was certainly one of them.  It was always held the Saturday before the block party which was a great way to start the season.

So what's up Ocean City?

Good morning everyone. We are going to run with this ball as a community. The Chamber have bigger fish to fry at this point. So that is fine. So let's move forward. April 26th (Saturday) What time? We will have a map, signs and the yellow balloon idea. What is the cost? Can everyone help out with the advertising: Facebook, directional signs, word of mouth etc. I will contact the papers. Still sign up at "The Asbury Attic" 825 Asbury or email TheAsburyAttic@aol.com and I will send you a form to fill out.

They cancelled this event last year and said that it was to return this year and we are very sad if it isn't. We (myself and 5 other friends) always came down from Pennsylvania and stayed in OC from before the yard sale until after the block party. We ate every meal in OC, shopped until we dropped every day. We did this twice a year at the beginning of the season and the end for years! I know of other people who have also come down for the Citywide Yard Sale. I do not understand why they would not want to continue to have such a great event. I guess Ocean City does not want our money anymore. I know of other beach towns that have city and town wide sales. I guess we will go there. Sorry
