Good morning Dorie. Your garage sale announcement brings back memories of the annual garage sale in the community when we lived in Ft. Myers. It was a blast but sure created traffic jams. Enjoy your day.

Hello Dorie - following your posts over the years, I know the Canyon Creek HOA Garage Sale is a popular event.  Good luck to all the sellers and bargain hunters alike.  The adage you include is so true.

Hi Dorie... I've seen yard sale signs slowly popping up at various neighborhoods here in Charlotte as well... but weather's been a tad cool... I suspect we'll see a flood of them later in May.

This week-ends weather is going to be glad as many have lots of things to sell!

I have always told myself that I should check out some of these community garage sale events to find items I could use for staging.  I think I keep procrastinating since I am not confident that I will know what will work and what won't, haha.  Perhaps I need to make sure either Kathy Streib or Sharon Tara are available for me to send photos to and they can tell me yay or nay, haha.

I'll bet your judgement on staging items would be favorable. There are always the basics to have on hand Brian England

Hi Dorie,
I love that the community is doing a garage sale at the same time. I wish my community could do that but it's against our HOA policies. I've never tried to ask for an annual exception but you've planted a seed for that idea.  I hope it all goes well.

Carol Williams ,

The HOA does not allow random garage sales but they have 2 times a year its permissible in the Spring and Fall. It was one way to address many who want to be able to have one.

Hi Dorie- I love community garage sales!!! It is a great way for everyone to edit what they have and for someone else to find something they can use. And to have it at the same time makes so much sense. 

Brian England I had a stager/friend who would pick up furniture from garage sales and paint them to use for staging!!

I have always loved yard sales...both shopping for bargains and having my own to get rid of unwanted items! A ton of work, but always have so much fun!

It is a ton of work Sharon Tara but for many well worth the time spent.

Hi Dorie - this is the only community wide garage saw that I know.  We did one a few times in our cul du sac.
