Set sail and find treasure at Memorial Day Weekend yard sales in Big Bear!
Who, What, Where, When, Why…?
Big Bear homeowners with “stuff” to sell know that Memorial Day Weekend is the weekend to sell it at a yard sale in Big Bear. Any homeowner, especially new homeowners in need of stuff for their cabin, will find it during this weekend!
Everything from knick-knacks to furnishings, clothing, sports equipment, boats, cars, kitchen & household supplies, tools, patio furniture…you name it. All at yard sale prices.
Many yard sales can be found in the central Big Bear Lake area, but there will also be yard sales from Boulder Bay to Fox Farm to Moonridge to Big Bear City and the rest of east valley. The Big Bear Grizzly newspaper will have classified ads for some yard sales, but there will be signs everywhere around town, so just get in your car and set sail!
Starting on Friday morning (May 28, 2021), you will have the “locals advantage” because most visitors have not yet arrived in Big Bear for the weekend. So, if you are a serious “Yard Sailor”, plan to be up and running early Friday morning. There will still be lots of great treasure-hunting on Saturday too, the earlier the better. Sunday sales start to have slim pickin’s, although you may find better bargains. Get up early, grab a cup of Joe, and bring plenty of cash and space in your vessel.
In a second home town where furnishings transfer from owner to owner when a house sells (after every 5 years on average), there is just a lot of stuff that gets passed around – much of it only gently used. You really can furnish a house on the cheap in Big Bear if you attack these yard sales!
If you own a revenue-generating resort market investment cabin in Big Bear, this is the weekend to replace worn items of furniture, add life to your cabin décor, and create a stash of replacement items for the future. It will ultimately benefit your bottom line and add to the enjoyment of your cabin.
So, if you need to furnish your new cabin, update or refresh items, or sell stuff because you are redecorating or moving on, Memorial Day Weekend in Big Bear is the time to do it. Find your treasure and Happy “Yard Sailing”!
