Columbia Heights residents are organizing nearly 50 yard sales throughout the neighborhood. Browse the sales to get great deals and cool finds on furniture, kitchen wares, clothing, books and more. All the sales are listed on this Google Map.

CHDI is also accepting donations of clothing and home goods for two charities: Community of Hope and Amvets. Drop your items off at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza.

You can also purchase Columbia Heights Day DC flag t-shirts and sweatshirts and learn more about what's planned for 2011 at the group's information table.
