Portland garage sale season is June-October.
Since we’ve all spent a lot more time at home these last few years, this might go down at the best garage sale season in history.
If you love a good find and a good deal, plan your garage sale hunting around these neighborhood events. Portland neighborhood garage sales offer a full day of summertime fun, as well as a cool way to see the various residential areas of the city.
Tips for shopping at a garage sale
Before you embark on your garage sale adventure, make sure you are prepared for whatever awesome finds the day has to offer.
- Have enough cash or mobile payment app. These sales take place in neighborhoods and some are not close to an ATM. Help your fellow sale-goers by bringing small bills and coins. Or if you prefer a mobile payment option, like Venmo or PayPal, have the app ready on your phone.
- Choose your time. Do you want to get there early and be first in line for fabulous finds or do you want to make a deal at the end? Either way, have a strategy for what type of experience you want.
- Be hands free. These neighborhood sales can be very busy and you may have a walk a while back to your car. I recommend an empty backpack to put stuff in and a comfy pair of shoes.
- If you don’t love it, leave it. You don’t want to have to sell it at your own garage sale next year.
