Gently Used

If you’re looking for some bargains on household items, collectibles or clothing, the City Market kicks off its weekly Sunday Yard Sale event today, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., throwing open stalls normally reserved for area farmers and local food producers to downtown loft dwellers who have accumulated too much stuff and need to unload. And if you find that your life lacks the Zen-like austerity of uncluttered rooms, box up those extraneous Hummel figurines, Billy Bass novelty singing fish and paintings of large-eyed children and get a yard-sale application from thecitymarket.org/farmersmarket.html. Stalls start at $15. For more information or to reserve a space, call Deb Connors at the City Market, 816-842-1271. There are a few restrictions on items permitted for sale, so be sure to check the Web site.

Sundays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Starts: May 3. Continues through Aug. 30, 2009
