Their Trash, Your Treasure: Guide to Pittsburgh Neighborhood Yard Sales

Everyone knows a hoarder. Tell ’em to bookmark this one for later. Our comprehensive guide to Pittsburgh’s Neighborhood Yard Sales is ripe for pickin.

The key to yard sale and thrifting success is getting up reaaaaaaally early to make sure you have first dibs on the best stuff. So you can mark your calendar and set an alarm as soon as possible, we compiled this list of some of the best Pittsburgh neighborhood yard sales this season (and will continue to add to this list as more are announced). What makes a sale one of the best? If it’s a reliable source of quality used items, some quirky finds, and great prices, of course. As an added bonus, we’re suggesting some spots to refuel with food, coffee, or beer AFTER you’ve made your rounds. Plus, remember, bathroom access is always key.

Regent Square Yard Sale

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Plus: Books, Beer, Plants, and Dogs at Wilkins Community Center

More info: Facebook event

Where to eat or drink afterward: We suggest you hit the residential spots first, then make your way to the Wilkins Community Center for your plants and books (and beer). Square Cafe is great, but almost always packed. If you are short on patience, we recommend a breakfast burrito from El Burro instead.

Bring your appetite!

Mexican War Streets Neighborhood Yard Sale

Saturday, June 1, 2019

More info: Facebook event

Very Local Event: Local x Global Northside

After the yardsale, we are hosting a very special Northside inspired event. We’re bringing the Blue Sparrow food truck to Allegheny City Brewing. For $12 you can get a Northside inspired sandwich and a beer.

Where to eat or drink afterward: In addition to a ton of vintage finds, the Mexican War Streets yard sale has an entire lineup of local food and drink options to refuel after you score (my personal best: a entire 70-piece set of Rogers Bros. “Adoration” silverware in its original storage case for $25. Worth: $80+).

Federal Galley is close by, so you can also cross North Ave. for four unique restaurant concepts (and bathrooms!) under one roof.

(Or, if you really want to #livelikeanorthsider, do what I do and go get the chicken and biscuits from Brugge on North. Then walk home and take a nap surrounded by your purchases.)

Hidden Treasures Rummage Sale Troy Hill

Second Saturday of the Month from March to December

More info: Most Holy Name of Jesus website.

Where to eat or drink afterward: This is not breaking news, but Pear & the Pickle has the best breakfast sandwich in the city. It’s a much-improved version of the egg and cheese on a roll I used to buy from a NYC street cart when I was late to class many, many years ago (this is not a coincidence, owners Bobby and Alexis spent some time in Brooklyn).

Even more bargain hunting near the ‘Burgh

A little bit of a drive, but totally worth it: Flea-tique

More info: Allegheny-Kiski Valley Historical Society website.

The Allegheny-Kiski Valley Historical Society hosts an outdoor flea market for antiques and collectibles on the third Sunday of each month May-October. Held on the grounds of the Tour-Ed Mine, it costs $3 cash to park (in a field, so keep that in mind if it’s rainy). We recommend bringing your own coffee from home, but make sure to stop by the Vibo’s Bakery tent for fried dough and pepperoni rolls.

Garfield Garage Sale @ Workshop PGH 

Unconfirmed as of 4/1/2019

Last year, Workshop PGH held a “Garfield Garage Sale” on the fourth Sunday of the month, with 12 different vendors that were a mix of garage sale, handmade, vintage and more. Plus, Pigeon Bagels. Fingers crossed they do it again.
