With the support of many volunteers, the City of Flat Rock Garage Sale brings winners to everyone involved. The homeowners get to thin out the items it their home and make some money, customers get great deals from the sellers, the city makes a little on the permits and the Society of St. Vincent DePaul gets items for resale at their stores.
Once the permits are paid for, the city compiles the list and with a city map, Sue Farrar hands out the list the weekend of the sale at City Hall.
This fall resident of Flat Rock residents bought 125 permits compared to 146 in the spring. I talked to one resident who said that they had a continuous flow of buyers compared to past sales. This is the fourth year Sue and her group of volunteers has operated the garage sale.
The City Wide Garage sale is conducted twice a year, one the weekend after Mothers Day in May and one the weekend after Labor Day in September. If you would like to help in any way with the next garage sale please contact the city clerk’s office at the Flat Rock City Hall at 734-782-2455 x6 or call Sue Farrar at 734-782-9476.
