After their first community yard sale in Fairhaven turned out to be a huge success last fall, Christina and Daniel Lopes are excited to announce the return of the town-wide yard sale on May 21.

The May edition of the neighborhood spring cleaning is already shaping up to be even bigger than the first event last October.

Last year, the couple were approached by a resident who used to live in Acushnet and told them all about their town-wide yard sale. They suggested Fairhaven do the same, and since Christina and Daniel were lifelong Fairhaven residents, they felt it was the perfect way for neighbors to get to know each other a little better.

“It went awesome,” Christina said of last year’s inaugural event. “Everyone had such a great time, they were all so happy to meet their neighbors.”

About 20 households participated in the town-wide yard sale in the fall. For this month's sale, 35 houses have already signed up to participate, with two more weeks until the deadline.

It is a full day of scouring the town for memorable finds, and the Lopes family makes it easy to navigate.

“We create a map for everybody with the households and hours of operation,” Christina said. “We generally do that a few days before the yard sale is set so they have the most accurate map.”

The response made Christina know she wanted to do it again.

“After seeing how much joy it brought people to meet and greet each other after a pandemic, I felt like it needed to continue to happen,” she said. “When you go to town events, you just say hello, but when you go to a yard sale, people share stories and you start having (real) conversations.”

Fairhaven shoppers are encouraged to message Christina and Daniel on their town Facebook page to stay in the loop. Not on social media? No problem. They look forward to you dropping in.

Fairhaven’s town-wide yard sale takes place on Saturday, May 21, with a rain date of Sunday, May 22.
