Mosey Around Morro Bay's Funkiest Yard Sale

Many Central Coast locals participate in this springtime tradition, one that involves street after street of offbeat finds and deals.


SPRING CLEANING, come the month of April, is a total Thing, with a capital T. We want to vacuum under the couch cushions, and run the dog's pillow through an extra cycle, and find (and donate) whatever duplicate dishes are lurking at the back of the cupboard. But once we've done the mondo clean-out, and passed on a few random finds to friends, and taken everything else to our local thrift store, we might pause and discover that we have a need for something sweet, special, or strange, an item that can fill a newly empty spot and an empty place in our decor-loving heart.

Well, surely not everything, but you will come across oodles to ponder.

INCLUDING, fingers crossed, the perfect knickknack or objet d'art to fill the space you cleaned out, a little too hard, during your springtime spiffy-up.
