Help our community stay healthy

Expectations of Shoppers for COVID-19

Take these simple steps during citywide garage sales to keep yourself and our community members safe and healthy.

  • Wear a face mask or shield while shopping.
  • Do not shop if you’re sick or have symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath), tested positive for, or have knowingly been exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks.
  • Keep 6 feet between you and other shoppers. (We’re advising sellers to set up their sales to facilitate this.)
  • Keep hand sanitizer with you and use it often.
  • Avoid touching items unless you’re seriously considering a purchase. If your children can’t abide by this, they shouldn’t come with you.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Set up Venmo (an easy-to-use mobile app) on your phone beforehand and use touch-free payments as much as possible. Otherwise, pay with exact change.
  • If you must handle money, a credit card, or use a keypad, use hand sanitizer right after.

Download the master list of sales

Click to download your selected list.

The Master List and Day-by-Day lists are PDF documents. You’ll need Adobe Acrobat to view PDFs; most computers come with Acrobat by default, or you can download it for free here.

Really want to nerd out? Check out the Microsoft Excel version and plan your route so you can level up on your garage sale shopping. 

 

Google Map of Sales

The map includes all of the 2020 sales, with descriptions. You can open the map on your mobile phone to look at it on the go.

TIP: For the best experience, download the Google Maps app for your iPhone or Android.

There are multiple layers — 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.)

All that’s in the PDF version, plus:

  • Address (they’ll be organized by neighborhood; see neighborhood map above)
  • Hours/days each sale is open
  • Description of items for sale
  • Categories of items for sale

About categories: Sellers indicate basic categories of items they’ll sell. For example, ‘Clothing: Girl 2T-5T,’ Housewares, Lawn & Garden, Baby Toys/Games, Electronics, or Books/Music/Movies. This info helps you easily find certain items. You can also sort by sales open on specific days and their open/close times. For you Excel nerds out there, it’s nirvana.

Lists for each day

In addition to one big list with all sales/all days, we also provide separate lists for each day. These include sale number, address, hours, and description.

In what format will the list be available for download?

The Master List will be available as a printable PDF or a downloadable Excel spreadsheet. You’ll need Adobe Acrobat to view the PDF; most computers come with Acrobat by default, or download it here.

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!)
