Evil, Evil Yard Sales

New, 17 comments

Via the Daily Breeze: "Nearly every South Bay city has strict rules governing the sale of second-hand treasures in residential neighborhoods." Translation: If you try to sell some old toys and grandma's afghan on your yard without paying for a city-issued permit in Gardena, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, or Hermosa Beach, you could be ticketed. And if you live in Rolling Hills Estates, don't even try to hold a sale--yard sales are banned. The paper profiles Miriam Dwinell, who was slapped with a $27.75 ticket for not getting a permit. Read all the specific rules here for each city. Who isn't curious how these outlaw yard sales get reported? By vengeful neighbors? [Daily Breeze]
