The Tangletown Neighborhood Association invites all Tangletown residents to be a part of our neighborhood-wide annual GARAGE SALE Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7 from 8:00-4:00 each day. Gather up all your superfluous household stuff and be part of the ultimate recycling party!
Complete the registration form you can download here, which you will also find on the back of the Tangletown Spring 2011 newsletter and get it to us by April 30th. PLEASE include an email address; it makes it much easier to confirm registrations and addresses, communicate any changes, alerts, sign information, etc.
This annual event has become a drawing card for treasure hunters from all over the Twin Cities, and you can benefit as both a buyer and a seller! Experience has shown us that even Mother Nature can’t dampen this two-day house-to-house shopping romp!
You can sign up to sell on Friday, Saturday or both days. If you don’t think you have enough stuff to host your own sale, talk to your neighbors and combine your goodies in one location.
The TNA Annual sale will get advertised in the Star Tribune, the Southwest Journal, on Craigslist, and on signs throughout the area. Participants get official TNA Garage Sale signs to post in front of their sales to make it easier for buyers to find them. Maps showing the location of all the participating sales will be available at Fuller Park, at each garage sale location, and online.
Steve Bieringer, who heads the committee for this event, had this to say about last year’s sale; “I think all in all sales were good even though the weather didn’t cooperate.”
He also suggests that all sellers be watchful of petty thieves looking to grab valuable items not under the seller’s watch and walk off undetected. Guard your cash box to avoid any problems, or wear a fanny pack or carpenters apron for your money.
And be sure to have fun!
