Fierce Chicks Rock Throw a Rocking Yard Sale



Moveable Feast is a phenomenal organization.  They provide healthy meals for Maryland residents with cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other severe illnesses.  A variety of local organizations have come together to raise money and find food to help further Moveable Feast’s mission, from Gather Baltimore to Fierce Chicks ROCK.  Fierce Chicks is a group of determined women who fundraise throughout the year for Moveable Feast.  Each May, they bike over 140 miles from Ocean City to Baltimore in two days, with each woman raising $1,300 – the cost of feeding one client at Moveable Feast for an entire year.

Tomorrow they are throwing their annual yard sale, with all proceeds to benefit their fundraising goal.  From 7:00a to 1:00 pm they can be found at the corner of Barclay and 31st in Charles Village, just a few steps away from the Waverly Market.  Stop on by to see what goods they’ve found, what deals abound, and help these incredible women reach their worthy goal.

One of the most anticipated yard sales around these parts is at my friend Jake’s house. Jake was my real estate agent when I bought my house last summer, but he’s also a floral designer and party planner extraordinaire. You can see Jake’s house decorated for the holidays, here. 

Johns Hopkins’ Massive Yard Sale


Not all of us have the stamina for yard sale season. Maybe you’re tired of scouring Craigslist for nearby listings, then mapping out a way to hit the most promising yards in the most efficient way. Instead, maybe you daydream about a a huge room full of many people’s gently used clothes, furniture, and small china figurines.

If so, you’re about to have that disconcerting (yet pleasant) experience of seeing your dream become a reality on Saturday, when Johns Hopkins hosts its second annual U-Turn Sale. The idea is simple — gather together all the sweaters and electronics and books and stuff that college students can’t fit in their cars, and don’t feel like storing until next year; combine that with donated objects from students, staff, and faculty; then spend a month organizing and sticking (cheap!) price tags on things. You’ll (hopefully) wind up with a gym full of objects finding a useful second career, and a host of happy shoppers, glad to get a bargain.

Proceeds will benefit the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund, a plan launched in 2007 aiming to connect the school more closely with nearby non-profits, as well as to the neighborhoods that border its campuses. In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a closer look at the relationship between Hopkins and its neighbors — but for now, we’re content to go shopping for a good cause.

Give It Up for Shelter Pets


If you spent a leisurely Memorial Day Weekend having fun instead of a yard sale this year, you still have a chance to share your treasures with your fellow citizens and do something nice for your furry friends. On Saturday, June 4, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) holds a yard sale at 301 Stockholm St. to raise money to help take care of its animals, and they’re looking for donations. Donations can be taken to the shelter from 2-5 p.m. on June 2nd and 3rd. 

Items high on the wish list: furniture, home and garden items, small appliances, purses, jewelry and gently used children’s items. No thank you to computers, computer parts and grown-up clothes.

If you’re more of a spender than a giver, stop by to get a bargain, grab a snack and have a little gamble.  Raffle tickets and refreshments will be for sale at the event. Then come back the next day on Sunday June 5th to bid on some charming art made by the second graders at Southwest Baltimore Charter School, who visited the shelter a few weeks ago and took photos of some of the adoptable pets. Bidding on the collection of oil and watercolor paintings will begin at 4 p.m and exhibit runs until 7p.m.

All proceeds go toward BARCS and its continued mission to help homeless and neglected animals.

Come on! Lend a paw! Just imagine if YOU had to spend the summer in Baltimore walking barefoot on the pavement in a fur jumpsuit, doused in a perfume strong enough to repel and kill fleas and ticks.
