Got Stuff? Sell It on Frederick Road on June 4

Catonsville is participating in the Historic National Road Yard Sale.

Catonsville is known for its yard sales, but the tradition may go to a whole new level on June 4 when six miles of Frederick Road becomes a market for just about anything you can slap a price tag on. 

The Catonsville Historical Society, along with several businesses, churches and residents, is organizing the community's participation in the national event, which has been held along portions of Historic National Road—local Route 144—for nine years. 

In Catonsville, participation will be on June 4 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting at the Baltimore city line and continuing to Ellicott City. A total of six miles will be available for yard sale space.

Sharon Stanton, a member of the historical society, said she thought it would be a good way to showcase Catonsville.

"Any given Saturday you can go through Catonsville and there are yard sales set up all over the place," she said.

A portion of the proceeds raised will also go to the Catonsville Emergency Food Ministry.

One of the business owners participating is Reggie Sajauskas, the owner of on Frederick Road.

Sajauskas said she is putting inventory from her store at a discount and also plans to have items in front of her house on Frederick Road.

"I'm personally responsible for about 200 linear feet of Frederick Road, and I'll do my part," she said.

So far, several churches have signed on, including , , Catonsville United Methodist Church and the Catonsville Assembly of God.

This project is a real grassroots effort -- no budget, no local precedent, no way to predict what happens on June 4. But it would be amazing if businesses and residents along Frederick Road, in Paradise, Catonsville, and Oella, decided to set up and sell stuff!.We all know there is no shortage of buyers in Catonsville! In the meantime. some of our neighbors are less fortunate and would certainly benefit from portions of profits being directed to CEFM. Pray for sunshine (but not too much)!
