TARZANA (CBSLA) — Chris Brown hosted a yard sale at his Tarzana home Wednesday and fans from hours away showed up on the singer’s lawn to be part of it.
Brown, 30, posted details about the sale, including his home address, to Instagram and Twitter, encouraging the public to score some of his things for cheap.
A source told CBSLA that Chris Brown didn’t do this for the money, but did it to give back to the fans.
Crowds lined up outside Brown’s home at 19602 Citrus Ridge Drive hoping to snag some designer gear at deep discount prices.
“I’m into fashion, I’m into clothes,” said fan Brently Barson. “If Chris Brown is having a yard sale, I’m showing up.”
According to the flyer, the sale featured “significantly marked-down, high end designer items,” on a first-come, first-served basis.
Fans were let inside in small groups for 20 minutes to shop, but that didn’t help cut through the long line.
Earlier in the day, there was concern that the garage sale would be shut down because of crowding in the residential neighborhood.
The yard sale was held until 7 p.m. Wednesday, at which point people who were still in line after waiting for hours were told to leave and come back Thursday.
“Me and my best friend came out here at 10:40 to be out here all this time to be told we can’t get in,” said one disappointed fan.
The garage sale is happening again Thursday morning starting at 10 a.m. — Some fans say they aren’t coming back for round two.
