Trees became clothes hangers and benches turned to display tables at Concert Park for the spring Playa Vista Community Yard Sale on May 14.
Local families, pooches on leashes and everything from toys and collectibles to DVDs and home video systems lined the sidewalks of the park. For a $5 fee, Playa Vista residents could bring and sell just about anything.
It’s very friendly, and family- and neighborly-oriented,” said yard sale organizer Jennifer Kingshott, a 13-year resident of Playa Vista.
The Playa Vista Community Yard Sale happens twice a year, with the next one set for November. Sellers make an average of $75 to $100 for the day, Kingshott said, though a few can near $400 or more.
Other than allowing sellers to walk away with some quick cash, the mission of the yard sale is to bring locals together so that neighborhood bonds grow tighter.
