HOW Community Garage Sale

Garage Sale Tips

Register Your Sale
Send an email no later than May 1st to the Garage Sale Coordinator to join in this FREE community activity. In your email, include your full name, street address, brief description of items for sale, and which days your sale will be open.
It's a fact! Community garage sales are always more successful (and more fun) than going it alone. More stuff draws more traffic. HOW sponsors and organizes this event by advertising the the Grayslake Journal and in the Advertiser, posting large road signs throughout Wildwood, posting fliers at area businesses, and supplying a map, listing and description of all the participating households.

Buyers: Lots of sales means lots of great deals. Stop in and shop!

The HOW Community Garage Sale is held on the
2nd Thursday, Friday and Saturday in May
Thursday & Friday 9AM to 4PM, Saturday 9AM to 3PM
