Hopefully this initial Allentown Neighborhood-Wide Yard and Porch Sale will be successful, because these are the types of community-wide events that can bring a community together… similar to a Porchfest. The event is a great way to get people walking around, visiting other neighbors. It’s also the perfect type of event for spinoffs down the road – a time when musicians play, artists paint, tea and lemonade is served, and porch parties are held. Allentown is the perfect spot for a community event of this nature, which is why it’s so important to support it!

Allentowners have the best stuff to sell, including antiques, collectibles,  furniture, china, glassware, garden and yard items, books, linens, and clothing!
