Grand Street Gardens is having its first-ever yard sale this weekend, come rain or come shine, at its 2200 West Grand Avenue center. The motivation was to clear out room for fall arrivals (all plants will be discounted up to 75 percent), but the owners have really emptied out the closets and will be offering lots of “goofy stuff” and one-of-a-kind items. The sale runs tomorrow through Sunday, so shop early for best selection (or late for best price? Ay, there’s the rub of the green). Cookie Man and his mobile Cookies w/Flavor will be on hand, and PAWS will be selling lemonade. [Chicago Home + Garden]
