Photos: Party Company To Hold World's Greatest Yard Sale Saturday

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Have you ever wanted a giant aerial bird cage large enough to hold multiple dancing humans? Or perhaps a chandelier with a built-in DJ booth? What about giant inflatable swan lounges for your pool, assorted circus props, or a freestanding acrobatic palm tree? Well, soon it could all be yours.

A high-end live event production company is moving out of their spot in the former Derby Dolls Factory, and none of it is coming with them. "After 15 years of custom creations, we just have too much to move to the new place," Pascha Solomon of Way 2 Much Entertainment told us.

The sale will be held Saturday at their soon-to-be former warehouse at 1910 Temple Street in Filipinotown, just south of Echo Park. We are told that there will be plenty of parking (enter via the Westlake lot).

Way 2 Much Entertainment has specialized in custom performances and over-the-top theatrical creations for live events since 1999, and they build and design almost everything in house.

According to Solomon, the company has utilized world-class talent and designers to outfit high-level corporate, government, celebrity, private and nonprofit special events across the globe, with credits ranging from lead producer roles on multiple White House Halloween parties, to events for SpaceX, NBC Universal and Coca-Cola.

What else can you expect to find Saturday morning? Outlandish costumes, sofas and overstuffed chairs, two industrial sewing machines, collectibles and artwork, records, and "SO MUCH FREAKING FABRIC (tons for $1 a pound)." Plus, a wide array of top-of-the-line art supplies and production materials.

Solomon tells us that the company's costumer and production manager will also be selling items from their personal collections, along with a large selection of vintage clothing, jewelry and furniture.

"We are selling things for a song, really—a fraction of what it cost us to make," Solomon said. "Most things were used just once or twice since they are created for each client's vision."
