Every spring, the Fallingbrook Community Association organizes a community-wide garage sale. On that day, any family wishing to participate simply holds their own garage sale. The advantage is that we do the advertising, and there are many, many participants. People come from far away in order to shop at our garage sale.
To enhance your experience, we suggest that you place posters at the end of your street, advertising your event. Don’t forget to take them down afterwards. During the week before the event, we place dozens of signs on major roads like Tenth Line, Trim and Innes, to remind everyone that the big event is coming.
Garage Sale will be on Saturday May 26, 2018
In the event of rain, try putting out your stuff on Sunday. Use your judgment, as we cannot coordinate a rain date with so many people. You are free to extend your event to Sunday in any case, because it’s your garage sale.
After the event, please don’t forget to remove any signs that you may have put up on street corners.
What to do with unsold and unwanted items?
Leave them by the curb, with a sign saying “Free”.
