History San José to Host Yard Sale in the Park October 13

Free Admission to History Park Sunday, October 13, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

San Jose, CA – September 16, 2013 --- Everybody loves a good bargain. And where else would one find a good book but at a museum? On Sunday, October 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., History San José will host a park-wide yard sale. But the best bargain at the Yard Sale in the Park is free admission to History Park.

The public is invited to host their own table and sell their wares. Booths of used lamps, grandma’s china, toys, and anything else taking up space at home, can be sold. Booths of wares will be positioned inside the park. Proceeds from the Yard Sale in the Park will benefit all nineteen affiliates that call History Park their home.

"History Park is a great venue for a ‘yard’ sale because we have a 14-acre ‘yard’ --- said Alida Bray, President and CEO of History San José. “The Yard Sale in the Park offers a sense of community, helping each other out, and just having fun. And it is better than a garage sale, a block sale, or sitting in your own driveway."

There will be an HSJ book booth, offering duplicate and deaccessioned books for sale, as well as an assortment of other items.

Registration must be received by October 11; booths for non-members are $20 each; booths for members and affiliates of HSJ are free. Entrants must register to sell, and provide their own equipment, tables, chairs, canopies, etc. Register by contacting Juanita at jlara@historysanjose.org or calling 408 918-1045.

Memberships are available from $50 by contacting Dayna Grabkelis at dgrabkelis@historysanjose.org or 408-918-1049.
