Tis the season wherein one person’s junk becomes another’s bargain find, and the next two weekends on the Green promise riches for sellers and buyers alike in Lincroft and Red Bank.
First up, this Saturday: the Lincroft Village Green Association holds its ninth annual Lincroft Community Yard Sale at homes throughout that corner of Middletown from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A week later, on April 27, comes the Red Bank Townwide Yard Sale, a borough-spanning extravaganza of household goods recycling

LINCROFT: For a free booklet that lists the yard sale addresses and items for sale, visit the website of the LVGA, which bills itself as “a civic association committed to keeping Lincroft a pleasant and safe place to live. Residents may also register as sellers at the site.
RED BANK: Brought to life in 2008 by borough resident Audrey Oldoerp and redbankgreen, this event typically features at least 100 homes throughout town offering somebody’s treasure. Hosted since 2010 by the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library, the event is a fundraiser for that vaunted borough institution.
The yard sale, which also features a detailed seller’s list and map available the night before, runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a rain date of Sunday. The library website has registration forms, which are due by Wednesday, April 24.
