2024 Community-wide Yard Sale

Want to sell some old clothing, collectibles, or anything else you might find at a garage sale? This is your best opportunity of the year.

  • We obtain the permit from the city.
  • We advertise the sale on websites with a total reach of more than 20,000 people. See an example here.
  • We provide maps and street corner placards to direct buyers to your home.
  • You keep the sale proceeds.

Saturday, March 23, starting no earlier than 8 a.m. and lasting no later than noon. Sign up NOW and pay the $17 fee, which will help support this and future neighborhood organization activities. The online form below allows us to accept donations by credit card, PayPal, Venmo, and Google Pay. The donation platform, Givebutter, will ask you for a “tip,” but it’s entirely up to you whether you want to change the default tip from $2 to a greater amount or $0 and whether you want to agree to pay our processing fee to cover this convenience. (Click here to ask any technical questions about online payment.)

The day of the sale, participants should plan on beginning setup at 7 a.m. But planning already has begun. In order to obtain the permit and place the advertising, we need you to sign up now. Simply email your full name and address to the estate sale coordinator, our neighbor Sanford Cohen, along with photos of your best items. These will be advertised (without your name and address) on websites like EstateSales.org. If you pay for multiple permits, you must provide information for each address.

We suggest sellers view these security tips.

If you don’t have much to sell, but want to participate anyway to meet new neighbors, please let us know. We need some homeowners to offer their driveways to neighbors in the Canyon South One HOA, which does not allow garage sales on its property.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If Sanford doesn’t have your name and address on the permit application he submits the week of March 11 and you decide to participate anyway, the city’s code enforcement officer can cite you for a permit violation.
