With spring in the air everyone wants to do a little clean-up around the house. Well the Garage Sale Committee is giving you a chance to make money on that old stuff. On Saturday May 18th and Sunday May 19th the City Wide Garage Sales in Flat Rock takes place. The City will do all the advertising for you. All you have to do is get a permit from the City Hall clerk’s office. 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. You can donate those remaining from your sales the Society of St. Vincent DePaul by bring them to the city hall parking log at the end of the day. Remember, NO mattress, chemicals or gas driven devices are accepted.
Once the permits are paid for, the city compiles the list and with a city map, Sue Farrar hands out the list the weekend garage sale at City Hall.
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.

The first Euro-American settlers in Flat Rock were Michael Vreeland and his five grown sons between 1811 and 1820. Michael had been captured by British Rangers during the Revolutionary War and released after American independence.
The family purchased 800 acres (3.2 km2). The town was called the Village of Vreeland until 1838 when the Vreeland family sold off the majority of the land and relinquished control of the area. The Vreeland families built the first grain and lumber mill, having brought the grinding stones from New York.
Descendants of Michael Vreeland still live in the town and attend Flat Rock public schools, being the seventh generation to reside in the town their family founded.
