Add Your Sale to the List

Things to know about adding your sale to the list

Cost

There’s no cost to add your sale to the list, though we do ask sellers to consider donating a couple of dollars to help cover the expenses (time and money) associated with organizing such a big event every year. You can decline if you like, but we’d sure be grateful if you’d throw a couple bucks our way. Even $5 is a big help.

How and when to add your sale

When the list opens, a form will appear on this page. Please don’t send me your info via email; everyone needs to fill out the form.

At 7:00 AM on Wednesday June 5, we’ll finalize the list. Please don’t procrastinate. This is a hard and fast deadline. 

What the list includes

The list will include your sale address, dates and hours of operation, plus a description of what you’re selling. You’ll need to know what merchandise your sale contains before you submit your sale to the Master List.

Who to contact with questions

Email Lydia or call 319-435-8281.

How to change your garage sale listing
