There's two sweet yard sales happening in Halifax this weekend you won't wanna miss

June 25-26, fine art and funky finds await at Radstorm's fundraiser and a sale by emerging talent.

There’s a billion ways to spend a summer Saturday, but a solid one your great aunts have been hip to for decades? Yard sale hunting—especially when the sales in question aren’t your average front-yard affair. This weekend, two such sales are happening in Halifax, making it the perfect time to break your piggy bank/shake the sofa cushions/withdraw some cash so you can snap up one-of-a-kind curios and art from young up-and-comers.


On Saturday, June 25 from 10am to 2pm at Saint George’s Round Church (2222 Brunswick Street), the community-minded collective Radstorm will be holding a fundraising sale, in the church parking lot, on the Maitland Street side. So far, it looks like everything from Simon and Garfunkel tapes to cross-stitchings to vintage clothes to original screen-print art by local maker Sorry Goods (a Coast favourite for its colourful illustrations of existential dread) will be on offer, alongside a swath of other vendors.


Meanwhile, over at 5440 North Street, a trio of visual artists are selling original works. Charvel Rappos, David Champion and Caitlin Secondcost are selling everything from haunted-feeling oil paintings to colourful paintings on wood blocks to found object sculptures from 6pm until late on June 25 and noon until late on June 26.
