Monday, February 24th, 2014

Paul Kaplan Group Modernism Yard Sale

Crowds began showing up early and racking up the bargains this past Sunday as The Paul Kaplan Group along with Modern Bear sponsored the Modernism Yard Sale as a free Modernism Week event. Although the sale did not begin until 8:00 a.m., anxious buyers begin lining the perimeter up to an hour early in hopes of grabbing some good mid-century and modern deals. Everyone was offered free donuts and Koffi supplied free coffee for the duration of the sale.

Goods ranged from original art, books, records, furniture, and slightly experienced mid-century household items. Vendors came from as far away as Indiana and Arizona as well as all over Southern California. A photo booth was on hand to capture the moment as customers found the items they could not pass up.

The Modernism Yard Sale will return next October. Sign up for email notification on The Paul Kaplan Group website: www.PaulKaplanGroup.com. As an official Modernism Week sponsor, The Paul Kaplan Group was also a sponsor of many of the events including the “A Taste of the Leisure Life” tour, the 6th annual Racquet Club Estates Home Tour and Reception, and the El Rancho Vista Estates Home Tour in addition to the Modernism Yard Sale.
