Information for Shoppers
This year’s sales will have lots of great tools for shoppers to find exactly what they’re after. For fun posts and stats about the list before it comes out, follow the Facebook event (link coming around April or so). You can look at last year’s Garage Sales Facebook event if it helps.

Google Map of Sales
When the Master List is posted, we’ll update the map below with the 2018 sales, including full descriptions, no later than 9:00 a.m. on June 6, 2018. You can open the map on your mobile phone to look at it on the go. Click the box icon in the upper right corner of the map to open it in your phone’s Maps app, or you can open the map in your browser.
SHOPPER TIP: Search the map for items you’re looking for, like “crib” or “antiques”.
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.
When to get it
The Master List will be available for download from this site on Wednesday, June 6th, by 9:00 a.m.
Where to find it
We’ll post the list here, on this website, nice and big so you can’t miss it. We’ll also share it in several of the local Facebook “garage sale” groups. The City of North Liberty will share it on their Facebook page too.
What’s in it
- Address (they’ll be organized by neighborhood; see neighborhood map above)
- Hours/days each sale is open
- Description of items for sale
About Categories: Sellers will be asked to select which categories of items they’ll sell. For example, categories might include 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 may not be included on the PDF version of the master list (for space reasons), but they will be in the Excel document version.
Lists for each day
In 2016, when I was out garage sale-ing, I kept spotting sales on the list that I wanted to visit, but they wouldn’t be open that day. That inspired me to create not only a big list with all sales, all days—but also four separate downloadable lists for each day. For example, a Thursday Sales list, a Friday Sales list, et cetera.
In what format?
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!
