Video Transcript

- Well, in Northern Liberties, the neighborhood wrapped up its long weekend of sidewalk sales. Our Howard Monroe reports it was as much about cleaning out your house as it was about finally getting to be with your neighbors again.

- I feel like we've all been purging COVID so it's just kind of like, this stuff I don't want anymore but it's not like trash. So I want to throw it out.

HOWARD MONROE: There's a notorious pidgey up for sale in North Third Street. Susan Graeser her family was hoping to sell her favorite schakowsky along with some other children's toys and farm fresh eggs. For Asian Tiger and her dog Charlotte, they were hoping to get rid of unwanted area ruggs and racks of clothes.

- At first, I was like, this is a lot of work. But really, it's all been worth it. We love to see it just moving, yeah, moving stuff out. So yeah, it's a win-win. All the way around.

HOWARD MONROE: And while this event is as much about people getting their hands on a nice piece of art or anything else they may want, it is also about neighbors getting out of their homes.

SUSAN GRAESER: I'm being able to do anything. So this is like our first time, like neighborhood it up again. And it was really exciting.

HOWARD MONROE: This is one of the first large scale events in the neighborhood since the pandemic hit. About 125 home vendors took part in the two-day event.

- Everyone coming by talking. It's like being able to get some human interaction after so long in lockdown. It's been awesome.
