Area Garage Sales

Coordinator:  Gail Ann Briggs,   728-2187

Area Garage Sales are usually held each spring and fall.  Dates are determined with input from people having sales, and considering other area events and holidays that might impact the number of buyers and garages that will potentially participate.  A small fee is charged to each garage to be included on a map and with the list of sale locations and items that is distributed, and in the group ad in the area newspaper(s).  Sellers are asked to prioritize the items they have for sale since the amount listed for each garage depends on space available.
