Free citywide garage sales this weekend


The Shawnee 2017 Spring Free Citywide Garage Sales are this weekend, April 21-23.

I spoke to Shawnee city staff today and was told they do not issue directional signs or post garage sales on the city’s garage sales page for the free weekend. If you have additional questions, please contact the Shawnee Planning and Code Enforcement office at 405-878-1616.

Here are a few tips to help you get organized:

  • Get Supplies. Make sure you have everything you need at least a day before the garage sale starts
  • Don’t forget the change. Odds are you’ll have to make $19.95 in change for your first customer
  • Price your items
  • Sort your items by price
  • Organize and arrange your sale
  • Draw people to your sale by putting up signs at each turn from a main road

Good luck, and I hope you make lots of extra cash!
