So that we do not have lines of people waiting at the gates or so that neighbors are not disturbed, we will be publishing the address of the sale on Thursday morning early and a sign up list will be in the mailbox for your convenience.  It is due to rain on Thursday so please put your name on the list and place the list back in the mailbox.  On Friday morning your name on the list will secure your place in line so no need to arrive before 8:00am.  At 9:00am, we will be calling names in order as they occur on the list and will work to get customers in and out of the house quickly to accommodate all customers as quickly as possible.  

For security and safety purposes, several San Francisco Police Officers have been hired.  We are also asking that our customers check their bags at the door.  If you are not comfortable checking your bag, please leave it home or in your car trunk and just bring credit/debit card or cash into the sale.  Thank you for understanding and for helping to make this sale safe and fun for all!
