We’re having a stoop sale!

My darlings, this Saturday, Alex and I will be having a stoop sale. We’re clearing out our apartment to make room for the baby, and we’ll be selling books, cookbooks, home decor, lamps, pretty clothes, shoes, artwork, and more.

Saturday, March 6th
10:30am to 3pm (or thereabouts)
The corner of Bleecker St. and Grove St., in Manhattan’s West Village.

Please come say hello, if you’d like! It would be really nice to meet you!

    Either way hope the sale goes very well and congrats on expecting!

  5. i second the motion to put some stuff on ebay…for those of us far away :-)

  7. Jo! How awesome would that be! I wish I’d be in America x

  8. How far are you from Turlock California?

  9. Ohhh I just moved to New York and I was roaming around the village last weekend and fell MADLY IN LOVE with Grove street. I’m seething with envy! What a beautiful place to live!!


  10. Nice! I’m having brunch at 1:00 with a friend in town. We just might have to swing by! :D

  11. Oh, cute! I bet your stoop sale items will be tres chic. Wish I could make it!

  12. you guys are so sweet! we aren’t selling online because we’re trying to sell quickly and easily (and ebay and etsy take ages, especially with shipping) but thanks so much for asking. can’t wait to see some of you on saturday!! xoxoxo

  13. cait, we didn’t post the house number! :)

  14. oh i so wish i could just hop a plane to nyc for this!

  15. Hey girl! I just stumbled up your blog after reading Ryan’s latest (from the panic room). I’m lovin’ your pics and sassy commentary. Thanks for being you. I’ll stay tuned! ;)

  16. Like so many others, I live too far away (Phoenix). Just ANOTHER reason I wish I lived there.

  17. if i would live in ny i would drop by..well have fun! xx cat

  18. What a lovely idea! Unfortunately I live way too far from NYC to stop by and say hi, otherwise I would have certainly do so!

    Hope you have some great weather, spring is just around the corner.

    Good luck!

  19. This sounds like a lot of fun – a few weeks ago I’d have been there in a flash!

  20. Claudia (Lisbon) says...

    I wish I could but that would require jumping on a plane and crossing over the atlantic :p

    Good Luck!

  21. Ah – if only I lived in NY! x

  22. I hate to say it, but are you sure you want to publicize your address to the big wide internet? You’re such a lovely couple and I got worried when I saw you’d posted the house number!

    99.9% of people are lovely enough, but .1% is enough to be nervous about!

  23. what a beautiful place your are living in… I’ve really appreciated this part of NYC when I’ve discovered your city!
    good luck! (and make a beautiful place for your little angel!)

  24. oh rats! i wish you were doing your stoop sale online! i can’t fly across the pacific and the rest of the states by saturday! :(

  25. L says...

    what’s your shoe size?!
    i’ll be in the hood, may stop by!

  26. oh to live in NY! can you sell some things on ebay again soon please? ;)

  27. Oh how I wished I lived there and could just swing by to meet you. I would love that!

  28. ash says...

    bummer! i’m secretly hoping for rain so you’ll reschedule for a weekend i’m in town. :)

    good luck, sell lots!

  29. yay! i have filled bags sitting in every corner of my house right now…trying to get ready for my “driveway” sale…no garage, no stoop.

  30. Oh I wish I could be there! I would like to see what books and pretty clothes you are passing on!

    UGH! I wish I was in New York! Maybe you should post stuff online for us folks outside the state. Like on Etsy or something. I’d totally buy one thing or ten :) You’ve got great taste!


  32. Love a good old-fashioned stoop sale.

  33. haha i love that picture of people hanging out on the porch!! good luck with your sale!

  34. I remember growing up how big the town wide yard sale was. My brother, sister, and I always had our own table of toys to sell. We got to keep any money we made. One year I made $20 and I thought I was rich, ha! Good luck!

  35. Are you sure you wouldn’t rather take a road trip to Texas and do it from here??? Good luck, although I’m sure it will be extremely successful!!


  36. Augh I missed it. I don’t live in NYC yet. Soon though… or rather next year. I’m excited! :)

  37. Oh my. I am so glad I just got a job. There go my week’s earnings!

  38. Aw nuts! There’s just too many reasons to live in New York – stoop sales are one of them. Having an actual stoop is another one.

  39. *sigh*
    1. I wish I still lived in the city
    2. My dream is to live in the West Village

    Congrats on the baby and spring cleaning!

  40. wish i could be there to get some hand me downs! i’m sure your stoop sale will bring much success… : )

    have a great day!

  41. I’ve just discovered your blog thanks to a friend of mine (went straight to the wedding bit!) and yes, we’ll be coming on Saturday! Can’t wait to help you get rid of stuff!

  42. can we buy some books online??
    please!! please!! pleaseee!!!

  43. I’m seriously thinking about taking the bus from Boston to come to your sale, just so I can meet you =)

  44. Those are some might FIIINE stoops! :) Wish I lived in or near NY! :)

  45. Oh I love a good NY stoop sale! My fiance and I joined some friends for their stoop sale last summer and we raked in about 500 dollars (and got rid of TONS of stuff). It was fantastic. Out with the old and in with the new!

  46. If only I lived in New York! Good luck! I hope you have good weather for it!

  47. I would love to come & meet you Joanna you seem to be a very nice person. Only if I lived in New York. Maybe have a online sale, just a thought. I’m sure you would do well.
    Have fun & lots of sales.

  59. Awww.. If I didn’t live thousands of miles away.. I’d be there!! I hope you have fun and sell everything!! I love that you call it s stoop sale!!! Have fun Joanna.

    Take care!
    xx Love & Aloha

  60. Cookbooks?!?! Darn it, I wish I lived in NY!

  61. I wish I lived in NY!!!

    Also saw in the comments that you are due June 2….my son, Micah was due June 2, but born June 9 (stinker!) Yay for summer babies!!!

  62. lindsay, thanks for your note, we’re selling lots of great little things, but no big furniture or anything, so maybe wouldn’t be worth a train trip!

  63. haha, mosey, it was just a half-hour ride, unfortunately! :)

  64. ohhhh, fun fun fun!! good luck with the sale! if i lived closer, i’d come by with lemonade.

  65. For sure! How fun, we share the same block! I had no idea… See you Saturday then.

  66. Hey, did you go for your bike ride? That’s two posts since you announced you were heading out…. Get away from the keyboard! ;)

  67. This sounds so exciting, because I’m sure you have fabulous things. I must know, though, are you keeping all of the great stuff, or would it be worth driving from Philadelphia on a Saturday morning to come check it out?

  68. You are going to have the most successful stoop sale ever!
