Estate sale success

Seventeen of our neighbors signed up and paid $22 each to participate at 15 locations in our community-wide estate sale on Oct. 23. After expenses, including the city permit, ads and signs, revenue from the signups will support future neighborhood activities. The sellers kept their proceeds and got a great chance to declutter their closets and garages.

“Thanks to all who participated in our wonderful neighborhood estate sale, both as sellers and buyers,” Canyon Palms board member Janice Kaminsky posted on our Facebook page. “It was such a high spirited event, very well attended with hardly any down time. Not only was it a great opportunity to clean house, but it was a great social gathering as well. I loved getting to interact with neighbors. A special thanks goes to Sanford Cohen whose expertise was so welcome by us less experienced at this type of event.”

Community-wide Estate Sale

Want to sell some old clothing, collectibles, or anything else you might find at a garage sale? This is your best opportunity of the year.

  • We obtain the permit from the city.
  • We advertise the sale on websites with a total reach of more than 20,000 people.
  • We provide maps and street corner placards to direct buyers to your home.
  • You keep the sale proceeds.

Oct. 23, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sign up NOW and pay the $22 fee, which will help support future neighborhood organization activities. The online form below allows us to accept donations by credit card, PayPal, Venmo, Apple Pay and Google Pay. The donation platform, Givebutter, will ask you for a “tip,” but it’s entirely up to you whether you want to add a small amount to your donation to cover this convenience.

The day of the sale, participants should plan on beginning setup at 7 a.m. But planning already has begun. In order to obtain the permit and place the advertising, we need you to sign up now. Simply email your full name and address to the estate sale coordinator, our neighbor Sanford Cohen, along with photos of your best items. These will be advertised (without your name and address) on websites like EstateSales.org.

If you don’t have much to sell, but want to participate anyway to meet new neighbors, please let us know. We need some homeowners to offer their driveways to neighbors in the Canyon South One HOA, which does not allow garage sales on its property.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If Sanford doesn’t have your name and address on the permit application he submits the week of Oct. 11 and you decide to participate anyway, the city’s code enforcement officer can cite you for a permit violation.

First neighborhood social

Our group held its first social gathering on Saturday, July 31, 2021, drawing about 25 neighbors and friends. Several newcomers joined many long-time residents to become acquainted with their neighbors. Everyone was thrilled to spend some time outdoors on what was a relatively comfortable and not too humid summer evening.

The Canyon Palms Board of Directors provided snacks and beverages, and there were delicious home-made desserts to enjoy. We thank the residents of Lobo Way for hosting our event outside their Canyon Palms homes. We look forward to enjoying other events with even more of our Canyon Palms members in the fall.
