Date for Block Party and Garage Sales and Art Sales is Set: September 22

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 22 — the date for OWLA’s annual Block Party in the 700 Block of Mississippi.  The time is 6 to 9 p.m. Bring a dish to share and join the fun!

On the same day, September 22, the Annual OWL Garage Sales and Art Sales will be held throughout the neighborhood.

Buyers should watch this space closely for continuous updates to the list of sales and addresses.

Sellers and artists should send an email to Phil Minkin (garage sale sellers) ( or Linda McKay (artists) ( in order to obtain a listing of their sale here on this website.  Please include address, hours of sale (a minimum of 8 a.m. to noon is suggested), location (alley, art studio, porch), and a brief description of your offerings.

The earliest posting possible is best of course, but the final deadline is 3 days before the sale (Sept. 19).  Meeting that deadline will also get your address on the printed list of sales that will be distributed at each sale site.  OWLA will place an ad in the Journal World.

Sellers and artists are asked to contribute at least 15% of gross sales to OWLA’s operating funds.  We look forward to your participation!
