Latest news: Fliers have begun to appear in Main Avenue windows.
The 6th Annual Ocean Grove Blogfinger Town-Wide Yard Sale will take place on Saturday, May 13, which is the Mother’s Day weekend. It will be held from 9 am- 4 pm, rain or shine. The yard sailors will post their addresses, cross streets, and items for sale in a list to be found on this page. But we will not reveal the items for sale until the week prior to the event in order to protect our participants from premature notifications.
There will be promotions, fliers, and ads. Blogfinger will advertise the event, and we get thousands of visits to Blogfinger.net each week and there should be good word-of-mouth. Shoppers from the Grove as well as visitors have enjoyed the social ambience of our town-wide sale, and each year the number of participants have grown. The more sellers, the more appealing the sale will be to buyers.
So, mark your calendars and plan to have a fun Saturday in the Grove. There should be plenty of parking since there are no major events that day. You can even ride around town, park your car, walk around a neighborhood and then continue a drive-by approach. Or you can ride around on bikes, which is the most fun way to shop. Ocean Grove is a walking town with a porch culture, so be prepared to chat while you shop.
Visit and discover Ocean Grove’s unique porch culture. Say hello to the friendly Grover residents who live in our historic town. Check out the Victorian architecture (we are on the National and State Historic Registers.) Main Avenue has some fine shops and eateries, and don’t forget to step onto our new boardwalk and walk in the sand on our beautiful beach and say hello to the magnificent Atlantic.
Get your town yard sale permit at the Building Department of Neptune Township. Park in the rear. Take Rt 33 past Walgreens and then turn right onto Evans Avenue. Then turn right into the parking lot behind the municipal building.
