National Garage Sale Day
You have to get rid of some junk. But one person’s junk could be another person’s treasure. National Garage Sale Day gives you an excuse to put up a table on your garage or lawn and let people know that you are offering a bargain!
Garage sales are also called a tag sale, moving sale, yard sale and many other terms. Whatever you call it, National Garage Sale Day is the perfect day to honor it. A garage sale is an informal way for people to sell their old goods. Sellers do not need to collect sales taxes or get a business licence to participate in such an event. Garage sales are often organized by people who simply want to sell items that they don’t use anymore. People may also hold garage sales when moving house and want to get rid everything they own.
Garage sales are a great place to find items like board games, old clothes, gardening and lawn tools, toys, books, decorations and household decor. Sometimes, larger items like furniture and household appliances can also be sold. Although garage sales are most common in suburbs, they can be held in any location. People who are looking to save money and those who want to buy unusual items not found in traditional stores are attracted to these events.
National Garage Sale Day was established in 2001 by C. Daniel Rhodes, Alabama. He noticed that his neighbors had garage sales on different weekends and decided it would be more convenient to have them all on one weekend. C. Daniel Rhodes had a tendency to create days. He also created Brother’s Day and Mulligan Day!
