Our neighborhood garage sale in 2019 gave us all an excuse to walk around the neighborhood and chat with neighbors on a lovely May day. In addition to the 21 families who publicized their sales, many others put out their “giveaways” at the end of their driveways, and some enterprising kids had lemonade stands.
That event was such a success that we planned to do it again last year, but had to cancel it due to the pandemic. Now that we know that it’s safe to be outdoors and to chat briefly with others if masked, we will hold the sale this year on Saturday, May 1.
If you are planning a garage sale (big or small), this will be the ideal day to attract the most customers. (Due to city staff having to work remotely, there will be no city-wide garage sale this year.)
If you would like to hold a sale at your home, send a message via the Contact page to have your sale posted on our website. Include your name, address, and sale hours. Most families chose the customary hours of 8:00 to 2:00, but you may set your own hours.
Mentioning the types of items you’re offering is helpful. If your sale will continue on Sunday, say so and include the hours. For privacy reasons your name won’t be included. If you also want your exact address (house number) omitted on the web, please specify.
