Golden Pearl Vintage Back Alley Bazaar 

For the fourth year, Golden Pearl Vintage is hosting a vintage yard sale with all kinds of vintage clothing and accessories will be available at affordable prices.

After, check out Open Streets Northeast or the Red Stag Block Party. Aug. 4 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ Golden Pearl Vintage, 507 E. Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis, facebook.com.
