It also and gave sellers and freecyclers a means of getting household goods into new hands.
Among them was Monique McSorley, who moved to River Street with husband, Brad, and their son, James, in June, bringing boxfuls of toys they kept so they might get them into the hands of other children, she said.
“We’re just so glad the town is doing this,” she said.

Ray Rapcavage, developer of 22 proposed townhomes in Red Bank, is planning a charity garage sale this Saturday on the Clay Street side of the site, which also fronts on Harding Road and Hudson Avenue. All proceeds from the sale will go to the Red Bank chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County, Rapcavage tells redbankgreen.
The sale features “hundreds of items” stored in the garages that front on Clay, Rapcavage said, including building supplies — such as windows, barn flooring and columns — as well as bicycles, children’s clothing, and toys. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A hearing on Rapcavage’s building proposal is scheduled resume at the zoning board meeting on December 3. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
Before they get down to the important matter of a block party later that day, at least a dozen homeowners on Madison Avenue and St. Nicholas Place in Red Bank plan to host a group yard sale this Saturday. Bargains will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (File photos. Click to enlarge)
In conjunction with a used-book sale scheduled for Monday, the event is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library, which helps pay for enhanced programs at the West Front Street facility.
Spotted by redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer on Oceanport Avenue in Little Silver on Sunday, this sign… well, wow. Perhaps a reminder to the folks who took part in Saturday’s Wedding Walk in Red Bank to choose well? Click to enlarge.

Today, the Yard Sale website carries the third-annual event’s information packet for shoppers, a downloadable PDF that includes a locator map and addresses of registered sellers, along with brief information about what’s for sale.
More than 115 homes are participating in the border-to-border bargain bonanza, which this year has a new host: the Friends of the Red Bank Public Library. In conjunction with the event, the group is kicking off a three-day used-book sale at the library Saturday morning.
