No New Posts Abandoned/Inactive Yardsale Listings

Yardsale listings not updated for 90 days or more will be moved here. Threads here may (or may not) be up to date. If you're interested in something here, send a PM to the lister AND add a reply to the thread. If a thread here is yours, and you want to "reactivate" it, please edit the listing (as needed) AND add a reply asking us to move it back! Threads here will be deleted after 90 days (that is, your listing has been inactive for 180 days!)

No New Posts Finished: Sold! Found! Donated, Withdrawn or Disposed of!

Was there something you saw in the Yard Sale? & were coming back to find? Maybe it's already sold, found etc? Look for the thread here to be sure...but things don't stay here long. They'll be deleted after 90 days! You can't post here, but we'll move threads here from the Yard Sale when appropriate.

No New Posts SWAP 2017

The SWAP contest is a yearly challenge to sew 11 garments that will all work together. Some years, every top has to match every bottom; other years, the 11 pieces simply have to work together as a collection.
