|during these weird times. please read on for more information
about future Rock + Roll Yard Sale plans as well as
helpful links if you're experiencing hardship during
this COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
as you can image our annual Spring Event has been
postponed to a date still to be determined. it was to have
taken place this Saturday 2nd May 2020 in Providence, but all
events like this are not happening until it's safe to do so.
in the nearly 20 years we've been organizing our
Rock + Roll Yard Sales we've never had to cancel an
event. we've had a few that had to be moved to raindates,
but we've never dealt with anything like what we're all facing
now with this health crisis. it's interrupted nearly everything
and has definitely created hardship for the very core
of our events - our vendors.
some of them do sales like ours on the side, but a large
number of our vendors make a living selling at pop-up events
and have seen their incomes dry up without an avenue for
selling their goods. below is something of a virtual
Providence Rock + Roll Yard Sale for you to check out.
please consider spending some time clicking around and
if you have some money to spare, buy something!
below are the vendors who'd been accepted to be part
of our Saturday 2nd May Providence Rock + Roll Yard Sale.
our hope is that you'll virtually shop and support them.
just click on the photos and business names / descriptions
to make your way to the vendor's websites, etc.
(those that aren't clickable don't have web presences).
