UPTOWN — Area shoppers and rummagers looking for bargains and rare finds have several second-hand venues to peruse on the North Side this weekend thanks to a couple block club events and a pair of flea markets.

On Saturday, the Winona Foster Carmen Winnemac Block Club plans to kick off its fourth annual neighborhood yard sale.

Vendors will be selling household goods, furniture, dishes toys and clothes on side streets between West Foster and West Winona avenues and North Broadway and North Clark Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to WFCW.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Carmen Winona Block Club is holding its annual sidewalk sale on West Winona, West Carmen and the north side of West Argyle Street between North Sheridan Road and North Marine Drive.

Animal rescue group Precious Pets Almost Home plans to have a table at the event with clothing, shoes, house and bar wares and other items for sale, according to event organizers.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the American Indian Center of Chicago's monthly neighborhood flea market is scheduled to return outside the building at 1630 W. Wilson Ave.

The center sells a hodgepodge of donated items to help fund two of its charity causes — a lunch program for seniors and a food pantry program for people in Uptown and Ravenswood who need extra help putting meals on the table.

On Sunday, Vintage Garage Chicago is scheduled for its June showing.

Vintage Garage features dozens of vendors and antique dealers selling vintage clothing, jewelry, home furnishings, electronics, household items and more under one roof at 5051 N. Broadway. 

Sunday's flea market, which costs $5 to enter, will include a special section devoted to vinyl records, 8-tracks, tapes, CDs and other old school musical accessories.
