Garage Sales

Are there year-round garage sales where you live? Please list your general area (closest metropolitan or SE Tennessee or whatever) and how many month of the year there are garage sales. I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area and they are all year except when we have ice storms once in a great while.

  • sherri... everyone seems to have a different concept of where the south begins. if you feel comfortable responding with where you are - even a state will help and whether or not you do i'd be grateful.

  • Well, I'm in FL..... year round!

    I've lived up north and trust me... no one wants to have a garage sale in the winter! They sometimes have moving sales or estate sales in the winter though (that goes for all states that experience snow in the winter).

  • Florida, year round though I never do mine until January because it's just too darn hot!

  • We live in NE Oklahoma and yard sale season is March or April (depends on when winter decides to leave) through October or November. I don't start hitting them until September because I hate the heat.
