Subsequent arrivals who are going to stay and wait, add your name to the list. You can go sit in your car, but don't leave or you will lose your place. Your friends can put their names on the list when they show up in person.

We accept cash, checks and credit cards with proper id. Tag sale items are are sold "as is", and cannot be returned. We keep plenty of packing paper and boxes on hand for our buyers.

Helpful hints for folks who don't usually come to tag sales:  

  • come early if you have your heart set on something.  The "good stuff" goes early. 
  • put your name on "the list" started by the first arrival, and stay in the area.  
  • when you park, don't block neighbor's driveways or mailboxes.  
  • the sale is ONLY IN THE GARAGE (tools and equipment) AND ROOM OVER THE GARAGE (books, collectables, airplanes).    There is a lot of stuff to look through.   The main house and backyard are occupied, and are 100% off limits.  
  • prices are firm on day one , discounted on day two
  • All items are "as is", used, and may have flaws.  ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  Examine your items carefully before you buy.  
  • we accept cash, checks, and credit cards with ID.  We do not charge an additional fee if you pay by credit card.   Cash is faster and helps the line move along.  
  • there's little to no cell service here, so if you need to look up stuff on your smart phone, do it ahead of time.  
  • there's little to no cell service here, so I cannot answer your phone calls/questions ahead of time.
  • after everyone lines up on the morning of the sale, I will give a little speech outlining how this works and can answer any questions at that time


This is a really fun, interesting sale!   Thanks as always to our clients and great shoppers!
