The greatest yard sale on the Coast!

July 8, 2017
8:00am to 4:00pm

The Friends of the Gardens annual Pack Rat Sale is noted for quality items, fair prices, and friendly service. Finds include everything from garden supplies and household goods to antiques and collectibles. This annual fundraiser has earned its recognition as the “greatest garage sale on the coast” having raised over $165,000 in the 14-year history; 100% of the proceeds benefit the Gardens and enhance visitor experiences. Early arrivals have the best selection of items; those arriving later benefit from price reductions throughout the day.

Community donations result in a huge inventory of all kinds of items, priced fairly and with quality service provided by the all-volunteer staff. Donations for the sale may be made at the Gardens daily from 9AM to 4PM July 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th (but not on Tuesday, July 4th as we will be celebrating the holiday with family and friends). Please note, donations will not be accepted at the Gardens prior to July 3rd unless you arrange for an earlier delivery and assistance by calling the Pack Rat Sale message line at 707-964-4352 ext 17. Support the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens by donating and attending this fun event.

Come find a treasure! Thank you for your support of the greatest yard sale on the Coast!

Pack Rat Sale 2016 was a great success!

A drizzly and grey July morning on the coast didn't discourage the rummagers from attending the 2016 Pack Rat Sale. Friends of the Gardens brought in over $16,600 selling used goods and antiques donated by the Mendocino Coast community. That's  $2,000 more than last year! FOG also pulled a Professional Kitchen Aide mixer, a food scale and some measuring cups from the lot of treasures to donate to Rhody's Cafe. Thank you FOG!
