The list is closed for submissions

We will open the list to submissions on Thursday, May 24

Important dates for the Master List of sales

  • Opens for submissions:  Thursday, May 24, 2018
  • Closes to edits and new submissions: Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 8:00pm sharp
  • Distributed to the public: Wednesday, June 6, 2018 by 9:00am

The form will ask for your sale address, days of operation, and hours each day; it’ll also ask you for a description of what you’re selling. You should be aware of what merchandise your sale contains before you fill out the submission form.

Adding your sale to the list

Cost to add your sale

Free! Can’t beat that, huh? At this point, the garage sales aren’t a moneymaking venture for me. I love garage sales and I love serving my community. This is a good way to combine the two.

How and when to add your sale

When the list is open—see the “IMPORTANT DATES” above—I’ll add a big ol’ button on this webpage. The button will take you to a form that collects your sale information. Please don’t send me your info via email; everyone needs to fill out the form.

At 8:00 pm on June 5, we’ll finalize the list. No edits after that. Please don’t procrastinate. This is a hard and fast deadline. As soon as 8:00 pm hits, I begin prepping the list for distribution.

How to change your sale description or hours

After you submit, you can edit your description and hours of operation. Look for the confirmation email you received when you submitted; it has an “Edit Response” button at the top of the message. There will be no more edits allowed after 8:00 pm on June 5.

How to remove your sale

Plans changed and need to cancel your sale? To remove your listing, email Lydia at After the list closes, I can remove your sale from the Google map, but I may not be able to remove it from the list documents.

North Liberty sign ordinance

Every year, especially for the Citywide Garage Sales, we get special permission from the city to temporarily waive the City of North Liberty’s sign ordinance relating to garage sales. This is super nice of them, so please be equally generous and pick up your signs when your sale is over. Only two parts of the sign ordinance apply to citywide garage sale signs:

  1. Garage sale signs shall be displayed not for more than 48 hours before or more than four hours after the end of the sale.
  2. Such signs shall not be larger than four square feet.
  3. A permit is not required for garage sale signs.
