Locations across the United States that hold town-wide or community-wide garage sales include Fulton, New York; South Orange, New Jersey and Clinton, Massachusetts. All of these events happen yearly and are normally announced with rain dates already in place.
The town-wide event in Fulton, New York, takes place in July every year. It is always held on the last Saturday in the month, though some people set up their stands on Friday and keep them open until Sunday. This allows more people to shop, more sales and allows people who have to work on Saturday to still make the sale.
South Orange's community garage sale is held in June annually, but the date itself is different each year. All members of the community are welcome to participate, but it does require a town permit. The community produces a list of the homes participating so that people interested in shopping can find the locations easily. The items for sale can vary from home goods to tools.
Clinton has two options for shoppers to find sellers. They can be found on a list of people selling from the comfort of their homes or they can come to the central park, where sellers have booths set up for people to shop.
