The Danforth East Community Association (DECA) will be holding a Community Yard Sale on Saturday, June 10.
The ninth annual neighbourhood-wide sale will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Danforth East Community is made up of the area between Danforth Avenue and a little bit north of Cosburn Avenue between (approximately) Dawes Road to the east and Greenwood Avenue to the west.

For this year’s sale, DECA has worked to make it easier for those living in apartment buildings (who might not have a yard or driveway they can use to set up a sale table) to take part. A multi-seller site has been set up for those residents to use at Kimbourne United Church, 200 Wolverleigh Blvd.
Another initiative by DECA for this year’s sale is a clothing and appliance drive being undertaken to benefit the Kennedy House Youth Shelter and New Circles.
Some of the clothes and appliances will be used by clients at Kennedy House and New Circles.
The Kennedy House clients can use the appliances to help set up apartments of their own, while the New Circles clients are in need of the clothing for job interviews, formal events and more.
Those wishing to drop off small appliances or clothing donations can do so on June 10 at Kimbourne Park United Church.
According to a list from DECA, some of the most needed clothing and appliance items are men’s shoes (sizes 9, 10, 11, 12); running shoes, sandals, gym shorts, suits, young boys clothes, dresses, leggings, hair curlers, blow dryers, electric shavers, blenders, coffee makers, kettles, dishware, cutlery, electronics such as televisions, game consoles, vacuums, microwaves and video games.
Residents who plan on being out shopping at the DECA Community Yard Sale on June 10 should be aware that the Danforth Mosaic BIA will also be hosting a Sidewalk Sale that day so there should be lots of opportunities for bargains.
The Danforth Mosaic BIA covers the area along Danforth Avenue between Jones and avenues.
