 Modernism Yard Sale
Looking for a fun and relaxing way to finish off the activities of Palm Springs' Modernism Week? If so, come browse through a treasure trove of vintage furniture, accessories and objets d'art at the 5th Annual Modernism Yard Sale, sponsored by the Paul Kaplan Real Estate Group and Modern Bear.  This popular event will begin at 8 AM on Sunday, February 22nd in the PKG parking lot located at 1701 N. Palm Canyon Drive. The event usually runs until about noon.Modernism Yard Sale
Sponsored by The Paul Kaplan Group, which specializes in Mid-Century and Modern real estate in Palm Springs, the event first started as an opportunity for our mid-century collector clients to sell their wares.  Over the years it has turned into one of the hottest FREE events during Modernism, and a fun social hub to to mingle with fellow Mid-Century afficionados. 

"This is our 5th consecutive Modernism Yard Sale and it's getting bigger and better every year," said event coordinator and PKG realtor Chris Bale. "This year, we have a record 32 vendors which is the most we've ever had. There is a building groundswell of interest in our event due to the quality and variety of mid-century era goods for sale". Bale expects over 1000 visitors to peruse the goods featured at this year's sale which is becoming one of the week's most popular must-attend affairs.

The sale's vendors include an eclectic mix of mid-century modern designers, collectors and retailers, both from Palm Springs and from out of the area. Some of the items you can expect to come across will be one-of-a-kind chairs, period rugs, paintings, lamps, found objects and vintage clothing. "Last year, we had many people walking away with arms full of goodies and smiles on their faces," recounted Bale. "Our visitors couldn't believe the amazing selection and reasonable prices". 
As if you needed another reason to attend, free doughnuts and coffee will be provided, courtesy of Palm Springs coffee purveyor Koffi. Admission and parking is free.
If you can't make it to the February market, there is an additional Modernism Yard Sale scheduled during Modernism Week preview week in October. At press time, there were still a few vendor spots available. If you are interested in exhibiting, please email Chris Bale directly at
