Save The Date: 2013 Bernal Hillwide Garage Sale


Start shoveling out your closets and reorganizing your storage spaces, because the 2013 Bernal Heights Hillwide Garage Sale is happening on August 10, and Neighbor Michael encourages you to mark your calendar:

Hello Bernalicious People

The Bernal Hillwide Garage Sale is happening on the 2nd Saturday of August. SAVE THE DATE – AUGUST 10th.

The Hillwide is quite possibly the city’s largest single day garage sale.

It’s easy to participate. All you have to do is put your stuff out in the front of your home and sell it. The Hillwide team will be promoting the event thruout the city.

This year is also the Bernal Neighborhood Center’s 35th anniversary. We’ll be asking for donations to advertise your location on the Official Hillwide Garage Sale Tracker Map and help with advertising. Last year, we had over 44k views on the map and were covered in SFGate, SfFunCheap, Bernalwood, Craigslist and even Broke-a** Stuart. WOAH! That’s a lot of eyeballs!

There are a lot of details to still work out as we’re just starting the planning process now. If you’d like to help out, have some fun and get to know your neighbors better, please email me at We’d especially love some help with creating a poster, getting the word out to the local blogs and newspapers and working out the details of the event.

All volunteers are welcome! We’re having a planning meeting on Tuesday, June 4th at Precita Park Cafe at 630p. Please RSVP so we don’t overwhelm the good folks at the Cafe with a crush of people.

Thanks and I look forward to meeting you!

Hillwide Garage Sale Leader and Realtor, Zephyr Real Estate

  1. Thanks Todd! One correction to my update – our planning meeting is Tuesday, 4-June at 630p; not 4-August. August may be cutting it a bit too close. 🙂
