It's Not Too Late for Yard Sale in the Park

History San José to Host Yard Sale in the Park
Partners with Goodwill of Silicon Valley

This Sunday, October 13, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

San Jose, CA – October 8, 2013 --- The Yard Sale in the Park is Sunday, October 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and History San José, in partnership with Goodwill of Silicon Valley, will host a park-wide yard sale. The best bargain at the Yard Sale in the Park is free admission to History Park.

"We're delighted to be a part of Yard Sale in the Park this Sunday," said Mike Fox, CEO of Goodwill of Silicon Valley. "We appreciate the opportunity to partner with History San José in this family friendly and fun event."

The public can browse of other people’s stuff: used lamps, grandma’s china, toys, and anything else taking up space at home, can be sold. History San José will also be offering history books, as well as other items.

"We are always thrilled to have History Park filled with people, but to include other nonprofit partners who do good works like Goodwill of Silicon Valley is an honor," stated Alida Bray, President and CEO of History San José.

Trolley rides will be available, and of course, San Jose’s own Treat ice cream is available for purchase in O’Brien’s Ice Cream Parlor.
