Neighborhood-Wide Yard Sale
MARCH 9, 2019
SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE AND HAVE A YARD SALE AT YOUR HOME.
Multiple homes in Garden District Neighborhood
are having Yard Sales
Each year GDNA has multi-home yard sales on the same date across the neighborhood. 2018's sale will be on Saturday, March 24, starting at 7 am. The more sellers we have, the more buyers we will attract! Local merchants are encouraged to plan special promotions or sidewalk sales to coincide with the event.
If you commit to the sale, I will make a map of all the locations having sales and this will be posted on the neighborhood website. It will be advertised to the public and they can access our neighborhood webpage to see the map on the day of the sale. If you change your mind and decide not to participate after all, please, please, PLEASE let me know. One year, we had many people back out at the last minute. We had lots of disgruntled shoppers searching through the neighborhood for sales marked on the map and discovering that there were no sales where they were supposed to be. They were not happy shoppers.
We will be advertising that the sales will be starting at 7 am since that is the traditional time that Yard Sale shoppers expect to start buying. If you wish to start later, post a sign to let buyers know to come back later.
The neighborhood will update the yard sale map on the night before the sale. We will advertise it on:
Next Door - the neighborhood social media site that reaches residents in GDNA and nearby neighborhoods.
Garden District Facebook page
Ward VI newsletter
Our GDNA webpage, kiosks, and newsletter
You will need to do your own advertising, too, and post to your own social media sites. You will be able to refer your friends to the neighborhood website to view a map of the yard sale locations. thegardendistrict.org
On the day of the sale, you will need to post your own signs directing traffic to your home and your sale. Be sure to take the signs down at the end of the day. The neighborhood will NOT be putting up any signs.
