The Tunbridge Wells town-wide Yard Sale is effectively a car boot sale in your front garden, driveway, garage or porch. The idea came from a visit to the town of Bath, Maine (USA), where such an event is run very successfully every year. The whole town gets involved - people set up their goods for sale in front of their houses, businesses mark the event with special offers, charities run special events, and the town attracts visitors from near and far. And now it’s coming to Tunbridge Wells!
We are coordinating the event by providing a date and this website. Everything else is up to you!
This is a 100% free event. Any donation however small to help cover the running costs would be gratefully received. Please click here.
I am Ingrid Pope, a resident of Tunbridge Wells, who has a thing about de-cluttering and loves browsing around town. I believe that it is fantastic to have good ideas, but even better to actually do something about them and get involved! The Tunbridge Wells Yard Sale is a great way for me to create something fun and support the local community.
In my line of work (www.creatingspacecoaching.co.uk), I see first-hand how having too much clutter can weigh people down. This event is a good way to get everyone motivated and start sorting out those cupboards, wardrobes, spare rooms, lofts, sheds, etc.
Hop House Design (www.hophousedesign.co.uk) are kindly supporting the project and have developed the excellent branding (artwork, logo, leaflets and posters).
Mangrove Studios (mangrovestudios.com) are the web superstars and have created this website for us, complete with event registration and map plotting.
