Spring Is Garage Sale Time



Warmer weather means garage sales will start springing up in towns across America. For those hosting a garage sale beware of new laws that have been imposed since last year.

Depending on where you live there might be new laws concerning garage sales in your locale.

Some cities have started to require permits or have limits on how many garage sales a year one household may have.

A new twist on the rules is also the starting and ending times. In one Arkansas town, for example, a time frame of 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. is the new law. In still another U.S. city, the time frame is 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Fines for those who don't comply can be as high as $150.00.

Garage sales are fun and profitable. So check with your local chamber of commerce before starting to put up those garage sale signs.
