SCAVENGER'S PARADISE ... From San Antonio Road in the south to Palo Alto Avenue in the north, the Palo Alto Citywide Yard Sale will be taking over people's yards on Saturday, June 6, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with residents hosting nearly 250 sales. In addition to the usual clothing, toys and electronics, someone's selling a "very large dry erase board," another windsurfing equipment. Transportation-related items are popular: One resident wants to hand off a vintage adult tricycle; someone else is offering Toyota 4Runner backseats. Heck, you can even get a whole car (1993 Lincoln Mark IV, 85,000 miles). But while some shoppers will be looking for specific goods, others prefer the serendipitous approach, which one seller is happy to satisfy with this simple yet tantalizing explanation of what's in store at his address: "Treasures." Go to for a map and listing of addresses and sale items. The event is sponsored by the City of Palo Alto, Zero Waste Palo Alto and the Palo Alto Weekly.
