BGC Yard Sales are organized by Bonifacio Estate Services Corporation (BESC) for residents and people working in Bonifacio Global City. This webpage is based on information provided by BESC, but it is not an official page. Please use contact information provided here to seek further clarification from BESC.
The BGC Yard Sale is usually held monthly at De Jesus Oval, a garden located near Pacific Plaza Tower at 25th Street. Currently, it is held on the third Saturday of each month. Notice of the date of the next BGC Yard Sale is usually announced only about 2 weeks before the event.
The event is a community service by BESC to promote community building and recycling of pre-loved items, therefore no fees are charged. But there are rules to follow.
Under the new guidelines, if participants need to rent tent, tables and chairs, they have to bring these by themselves. The organizer, BESC, does not want to deal with the rental arrangements any more.
Also, there will no longer be a requirement for a bond.
The organizer will issue a community permit to approved applicants, and the permit will serve as a pass to set up the booth.
In addition, participants have to provide proof that they are residents of BGC, or working in BGC.
Furthermore, from September 2018, sellers will be asked by BESC to sign a quit-claim form and return it to Marc on or before the day of the yard sale. A sample is shown here:
The person in charge in BESC is Marc. He is assisted by Michelle, who can be contacted via email at email@example.com. You are welcomed to use your own tent, tables or chairs though, and you do not have to pay anything.
If you need to rent tent or chairs, the other sellers often arrange as a group to rent them from someone within the group. The group communicates via a Viber group, and you can ask to join the Viber group by emailing Marc or Michelle, or if you know anyone who is already in the Viber group.
Parking at the venue is not allowed, so you need to unload your items for the event and then park your vehicle else where. The nearest public parking lots are: Fort Victoria condominium, and Crescent South at 3rd Avenue. See parking map here.
Step 1. Register online
Residents and people working in BGC can register to join the yard sale by registering a link to be provided by the organizer about two weeks before the event.
Step 2. Pick up your community permit
Pick up your community permit on the day of the event from Ms Angel, who will be at the venue at 7 a.m. (The old rule was that the permit had to be picked up 3 days before the yard sale from BESC Office, 2nd floor, Bonifacio Technology Center Bldg, 31st Street).
Step 3. Arrive at the venue early on the day of the yard sale.
Report to the BESC counter to pick up your community permit, as well as pay for your tents and chairs if you have previously reserved them.

Feel free to share your experience of the yard sale here. To help drive traffic to the yard sale, you can post your items in our bulletin board so that people can get excited about items to be sold at the yard sale.
