Buy/ Sell Red Hook event this weekend!

RHED Event

Red Hook Economic Development (RHED)
Fall Event!

What is it? Neighborhood Sidewalk Sale and Flea Market

When? Sunday, October 3, 10am-4pm

In order to create a cohesive event, we recommend concentrating activity both along Van Brunt Street (sidewalk sales) and in the PS 15 schoolyard (flea market). You choose where. $10 will secure you an ~10x10 space in the schoolyard - note that school restrooms will be accessible during the day. To reserve your space contact Spaces are limited.

Who can SELL?
Local residents, businesses, and community groups are welcome.

You know the old adage, "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

How to BUY/SELL?
Begin your mission by sorting through your closets, book shelves, drawers, trunks, toy boxes, and basement. Next, SELL off all those neglected, unwanted, outgrown, ill-begotten items. Then you'll have room to BUY your neighbor's goods. (Hmm, perhaps we should just call this a swap meet?!)

Would you prefer to just donate items?
Falconworks Artists Group is accepting items to re-SELL at the flea market. Proceeds will benefit this local nonprofit's community work. To make arrangements contact Chris Hammett at 347-731-1379 or To learn more about Falconworks visit

What to do next?
Please send RHED a brief email response if you are participating. info@redhooked.orgWe'd appreciate knowing how, where, and anything else you'd care to share. This will help RHED's efforts in describing/promoting the day's event. e.g., it's great to promote the number of individual participants, as well as describe any special food/merchandise that businesses are selling from their sidewalks, etc

Get creative, have fun, make a few bucks, and don't forget to invite all your non-local friends to BUY in Red Hook on October 3.

* Many thanks to PS 15 Principal Peggy Wyns-Madison for making the school yard available.
