Richfield residents, hold a garage sale at your home during the City-Wide Garage Sale (on any or all three days) and we'll help spread the word!  Hold your sale, rain or shine, at your Richfield address. 

LISTING IN THE OFFICIAL SALE LIST & MAP    Richfield Recreation will list your sale, along with your open days/times, featured items for sale, and a pin on the garage sale map.  An interactive map will be posted on our website (www.cityofrichfield.org), as well as a printable/downloadable/viewable list and map in pdf format.  The list and map will also be printed and made available for free at most City sites, beginning the previous weekend (All four liquor stores, Wood Lake Nature Center, the Community Center, and the Municipal Center).

PUBLICITY    We advertise the City-Wide Garage Sale in the Garage Sale section of the StarTribune, TV Times, CraigsList, on the City website (www.cityofrichfield.org), on cable channel 16, and any available TV and radio event listings.  A display ad will run in the Richfield/Bloomington/Edina editions of the SunCurrent.

OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES

  • You are advised not to open your sale before May 18 or earlier than 8:00 am on any day. 
  • City regulations prohibit the posting of garage sales and other forms of advertising on city boulevards, sidewalks or street corners.
  • Road work will be in progress on 66th Street between Humboldt and Xerxes Avenues, and Oakland and 16th Avenues, at various sections, during the City-Wide Garage Sale.  Sections may be temporarily closed or reduced to one line or otherwise disrupted during this time.  Please take this into consideration when deciding to participate, as this work may or may not have an effect on the number of visitors to your sale.
  • We hope that our ads and listings will send lots of visitors to your sale!  Participation in the sale does not guarantee a successful sale or good weather.
