Maybe I'm just paranoid. My job tends to cause that.

The way the wiki works, that's not really practical.
The list is available now, just the maps are not populated.

I'm also not certain how hosting a garage sale makes you more prone to burglary?
Your accumulating stuff in your garage that you don't want.
In any case no ones required to provide advance notice of expensive items.



damn dude, just take a compliment

Number of sales so far:
  • 48 Wicklund
  • 47 Bethany
  • 42 Altamont
  • 2 Questa
Come on Questa... sell some of your stuff.

Anyway,  Thursday noon is the dead line for inclusion on the handout.
Also, please review you listing.

In particular, let me know if you'r not planning to participate both days.
It's frustrating to drive around on Sunday looking for sales to discover people changed their minds or didn't advertise Saturday only.


winedude@gmail.com is the best way to reach me for the sale.

If you want to be a wiki editor, e-mail me your real name and e-mail address.  As a wiki editor, you'll be able to add you own sale, or edit an existing one.  For that mater you'll be able to edit the whole wiki.

I travel almost all the time and like last year will be on the road when this sales event happens.  I was hoping someone might sell some things I want to go away, on a sort of consignment idea.  If anyone would not mind doing that, can they PM me?

The maps are not done yet.
Probably won't be till a couple days before hand.
It's difficult to update them piecemeal so I generally wait and update them all at once when I get ready to print.
patience

Times running out for inclusion in the printed handout.
After noon today, you'll be able to make the wiki, but not the handout that's going to be printed for distribution.

Please e-mail me ASAP if you have not already with your sale details.

Also, we have so many participants this year that the handout will only have the street addresses and a map for each village.  People will have to print the wiki page itself if they want to travel with the full list of items.

Is anyone selling boys clothes sizes 4T - 6T? 
 
If so, will you pm me? 
 
I would love to run over on Friday evening if possible.  I can't make it to the garage sales on Saturday or Sunday.
 
Thanks in advance!

The handout is ready:

I'm ready to get my bargain on!

Nice article on promoting a successful garage sale:

Big reminders:
  • Get some change today... in particular at least $100 in $1s, $5s and $10s
  • Have some bags or boxes available for shoppers
  • Hide items tools not being sold that might be in garage.
  • Please remove any signage you might be tempted to put up after you sale
  • Park your own car out of the way so that shoppers can park in front.
  • Have fun

To suggest people take signs down "after" is silly because it's against the CC&R's to put them up at all.

I would suggest that if anyone feels a need to put up signs, that they do it legally and put them on their cars and strategically place your cars where you want them.
