Save the Date! First Annual
HCA Stoop Sale
The Harsimus Cove Association is excited to announce our First Annual HCA Neighborhood Stoop Sale on Saturday, May 6, from 10 AM to 2 PM. To make this neighborhood-wide stoop sale a success, we need people to host sales on their stoops, a volunteer graphic designer to design a flier and map of sellers, and volunteers to distribute fliers the week before the sale.
To participate as a seller, you will pay a $5 fee to cover the city license, advertising, printing costs and to be included on the map of sellers. If you wish to sell your goods, design our flier, and/or volunteer, please email HCAStoopSale@gmail.com with your contact information.
Lastly, to support Jersey City’s reputation of being the most diverse city in the country, sellers may wish to donate 20% of their earnings to a local nonprofit assisting refugee families. We look forward to seeing all of you at the HCA Neighborhood Stoop Sale!
