The Great Macalester-Groveland Garage Sale takes place usually the last Saturday in August, rain or shine. The fee is $20 for households, $30 for businesses. Registered sales receive one Garage Sale sign, and are included in all advertising.
How to Participate
REGISTER YOUR SALE BY AUGUST 6, 2018
The registration form will be available here on July 2nd. The fee is $20 for households and $30 for businesses, which pays for printing, advertising, signage, and to support programming of the Macalester-Groveland Community Council.
PLAN FOR YOUR SALE
Mark your calendar with the Great Garage Sale date, Saturday, August 25th. Then, start organizing your junk – someone else’s treasures! Determine which items are usable and sellable and label them with a price. Figure out how you’ll display the deals and borrow some tables if you need to. Plan for supervising the sale and for keeping track of your earnings.
The Community Council will create a map of neighborhood sales. The map will be available beginning Tuesday, August 21st at the Council office (Edgcumbe Rec. Center at 320 S. Griggs) and online. The Great Garage Sale will also be advertised in Craigslist, the Villager, and Pioneer Press newspapers. The community council will create a sign for your sale, too, and you can pick it up outside the council office (in the vestibule) located in Edgcumbe Recreation Center (320 S. Griggs Street) from August 21st through August 24th. The Edgcumbe Recreation Center is open 9:00am—8:00pm Monday through Thursday and 9:00am—6:00pm on Friday.
GET READY, GET SET, SELL!
Post your Great Garage Sale sign in your yard and be ready to sell on Saturday, August 25th from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.! Plant yourself in the sun (hopefully) and offer some deals to those who treasure your junk (definitely). At the end of the day, pull up the sign and save the leftovers to bring to the Fall Citywide Drop-Off Event scheduled for Saturday, September 29th, 2018 on Shepard Road between Alton and Davern.
