East Buntyn Historic District Neighborhood Association brings community together with Memphis’s most friendly yard sale
On Saturday, June 4 at 8 a.m., Memphians are invited to experience the absolute best demonstration of
good (maybe even GREAT) neighbors. The 12 blocks of Historic East Buntyn in the center of the
city will play host to a Community Yard Sale with unique treasures that cover almost every
category of items for kids, adults, home, garden, entertainment, and education.
With almost everyone feeling the economic strain, finding amazing deals on the items that you
may not even find on store shelves is valued now more than ever. From rare books, classic vinyl
and outdoor games to clothing, decor, and garden supplies, the selection at this year’s East
Buntyn sale is really shaping up to be a “Can’t Miss Opportunity.”
This neighborhood, known for its annual Art Walk that will return in 2023, is home to a very
diverse group of Memphians that voluntarily have united to showcase their wares with a
backdrop of early 1900’s architecture dating back to the first planned neighborhood
developments in the city. Well-maintained homes may be a beautiful sight, but the people that
live between Highland, Central, Greer and Southern have a sense of community that has grown
immensely through pandemic times.
“My neighbors have delivered groceries, mowed my lawn, helped MLGW with service on my
property and much more BEFORE I even met them over the past few years. Yard sales in East
Buntyn have always seemed to turn into a day-long social while making money and cleaning out
closets. You never know what original art, antiques, and friends you will take home on June 4″
said Dena Ferrell Nance, a Reese Street resident of 7 years.
The neighborhood would like to invite everyone to peruse over 20 sales sprinkled on Ellsworth,
Prescott, Reese, Alexander, Holmes, and Greer Streets as well as Central, Midland, and Southern
Avenues. Street parking is available.
