Calling all Yard Sales! Yard Sales! Which ones can people participate in?

I’m interested this year in doing a yard sale but my location isn’t very good for one.  We are looking at doing a yard sale in a neighborhood or community center.  I’m sure I’m not the only one in the same position.  I love going to Yard sales.   My family are yard/garage sale enthusiasts.

In addition, I’m sure there are people out there that want to advertise their yard sale.

To all of my readers do you know of a neighborhood or community center that is planning a yard sale event this spring?

If so, please leave a comment with your Yard Sale Participation information or email me at redberrydeals (at) gmail (dot) com.

  • Where is it?
  • When is it? Day and Time.
  • Does it cost anything to participate? If so, how much?
  • Any additional information please provide!

Thanks!

Northern Virginia Fall Consignment Sales and Yard Sales

It’s that time of year!  Time to start looking for Consignment sales and Yard Sales.

Thanks to MoneyWiseMoms for posting this great information!

Here are the major sales for NoVA in order by sale date:

Check out each of the websites so you know how each of the Consignment sales work. Some offer discounts if you help and volunteer such as free admission, early admission and other benefits. If you plan on selling your kids nice clothes these are the places to do it. You might get a little something for each of the items but don’t expect to get a lot since the consignment company wants to make money and you want to sell it.

I’ve been to the Classy Kids Consignment Sale in Manassas and lucked out because I went on the last day which everything is a $1! It was slim pickings but all of the money goes to charity at that point.

My mother-in-law has been to the Christ Church Children’s Consignment Sale and says that is a very nice sale. I hope to stop by that day.

Besides consignment sales this is the time of year for more yard sales. I haven’t been to too many yard sales this year but I hope to this fall since my daughter is growing out of her clothes fast.   Look at, Craigslist and GarageSaleTracker for sales in your area and hitting the multi-family or neighborhood sales.  We have a lot of large neighboorhoods in my area and frequently in the Fall the yard sales are very common place.  The locations that I recommend include a look out for yard sales in South Riding (Fairfax/Loudon County), Franklin Farms ( Chantilly) and Centreville neighborhoods.

Best Yard Sale of the Year – Troop 893 Annual Tag Sale – 5/9/2009

A couple years ago my mother-in-law and I started to drag the rest of the family to yard sales all over the area.  She found this wonderful yard sale called the “Troop 893 Annual Tag Sale”, located every spring at the Chantilly Expo Center.  It is huge!

This year it is on 5/9/2009! Mark your calendar!
