Get the list of sales
This year’s Master List will have lots of great tools for shoppers to find exactly what they’re after.
For fun posts and stats about the citywide garage sales (and to get notified when the list comes out), follow our Facebook page.
The master list will be released on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 by 10:00 AM.
When to get it
The Master List will be available for download from this site on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 by 10:00 AM.
Where to get it
We’ll post a link to download list here, on this website. It’ll be nice and big so you can’t miss it.
We’ll also share it in several of the local Facebook “garage sale” groups and in the North Liberty Mamas group. The City of North Liberty will share it on their Facebook page too.
What’s in the list
- Address (they’ll be organized by neighborhood; see neighborhood map above)
- Hours/days each sale is open
- Description of items for sale
Categories: Sellers are also asked to select basic categories of items they’ll sell. For example, categories might include ‘Clothing: Girl 2T-5T,’ Housewares, Lawn & Garden, Baby Toys/Games, Electronics, or Books/Music/Movies. This way shoppers can easily find certain types of items, and sellers won’t have to write novel-length descriptions. The categories are not included on the PDF version of the master list (there’s not enough room), but they will be in the Excel version.
Lists for each day
In addition to one big list with all sales, all days, we’ll also provide separate downloadable lists for each day. For example, a Thursday Sales list, a Friday Sales list, et cetera.
In what format will the list be available for download?
The Master List will be available as a printable PDF and a downloadable Excel spreadsheet, so you can geek out and customize your own list of sales to visit. Sweet! You’ll need Adobe Acrobat to view it; most computers come with Acrobat by default, or download it here.
Google Map of Sales
When the Master List is posted, we’ll also update the map below to include ALL of the 2019 sales, including descriptions. You can open the map on your mobile phone to look at it on the go.
There will be multiple layers — one for all days, and one for each individual day. Go to the map legend to turn the layers on and off. One thing to note: when you are turning layers on/off, don’t click the CLOSE option—that’s basically cancelling your selections. Instead click the back arrow in the upper left. That will reopen the map and hold your layer selections.
TIP: Search the map for items you’re looking for, like “crib” or “antiques”. (On mobile, you’ll need the Google Maps app to search.)
How to get a printed copy
You can get a printed copy of the list at Alphagraphics for just $1.00. Pick up your copy Wednesday from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM or Thursday-Friday 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM at 1325 Kennel Court in NL. (Our gratitude to Alphagraphics for their support, and the discount!)
There isn’t a free printed list option. That’s because the garage sales are a 100% volunteer effort, run by community members who donate their time. If you’re interested in providing financial support so we can afford to print the list, please email us!
Get sneak peeks at the sales
