  • An ad will be placed in the Smithfield Times to run the Wednesday prior
  • Digital postings (e.g., Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc) will be made the Thursday prior
  • Signage will be placed at 4-6 area intersections the Thursday prior
  • Directional signs will be posted in the neighborhood the evening of the Friday prior (this is one reason why we’d like to know who is participating)

Tips for Yard Sale Participants

  • Post specifics of what you have digital for sale sites especially if you have big or specialty items and mention your garage sale the Wednesday prior
  • Be prepared for early birds looking for specific things
  • Wipe things down so they appear clean and tidy
  • Make things easy to see and group into areas (e.g., mechanical stuff, kids stuff, kitchen and household, etc.)
  • Put prices on things (top or front) so people don’t have to handle things too much
  • If you have clothing and plan to hang it up, use hangers you can part with
  • Have plastic bags on hand for check out and newsprint or tissue for wrapping breakables
  • Carry your money on you, don’t have a cash box
  • For you, sunscreen, bug spray and beverage of your choosing on hand
