Looking for a few items to spruce up your nest? There's no telling what you'll find at Trailside's annual yard sale! Join us on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday this Columbus Day weekend to shop furniture, housewares, toys, books and more. 

For more than 20 years, all proceeds from this yard sale have helped Trailside continue to provide quality programs for the public, care for our non-releasable wildlife, and host thousands of visitors to the Blue Hills Reservation.

Donate Your Items!

All donations must be clean and in good condition.

The Museum will gratefully accept donations of the following items for the yard sale, provided they are in working order with no missing pieces, parts, or accessories:

  • Clothing & other textiles (towels, linens, curtains, etc.)
  • Furniture, rugs, & decor
  • Housewares & kitchen tools (non-electric)
  • Toys & board games
  • Movies, books, & video games (no consoles)
  • Sports or outdoors equipment

Please NO computers, monitors, televisions, refrigerators, or other electronics! 

All donors will receive a receipt for their tax records.


There is no admission charge to shop the yard sale. We hope to see you there!
