Check out The Boston Edison Attic Sale this Saturday and Sunday

Boston Edison is a historic Detroit neighborhood that consists of over 900 homes built on four east/west streets: West Boston Boulevard, Chicago Boulevard, Longfellow Avenue, and Edison Avenue It stretches from Woodward Avenue on the east to Linwood Avenue on the west. Most of the homes in the neighborhood were constructed between 1905 and 1925 and the neighborhood was deemed historic in 1973. Lots of well known Detroiters have lived in the district throughout its history. Some of the most notable names include Henry Ford, Detroit Tigers player Ty Cobb, Barry Gordy and Joe Louis.

This weekend the neighborhood will be hosting its annual attic sale. Tons of homes in the district will be setting up shop to sell a wide variety of items, including antiques, furniture (vintage & new), books, appliances, tools, paintings, clothing and more. Last year, hundreds of people attended and were posting about all of the great items that they found. It's a great place to look for something unique while taking an up close peak at some of the most beautiful and historic homes in the city.  

The sale takes place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th. To learn more about the sale, you can visit the district's website here.
