National Garage Sale Day comes on the second Saturday in August of each year. Garage Sale Day is a day to clean out some old junk as the junk of one’s maybe a treasure for another person. On this Garage Sale Day, you will see people finding great deals at these neighborhood sales. For those having the sales, this is a way for them to find new homes for items they no longer need.
“I think there’s a bargain in every garage sale – not as much as there used to be, but they’re still there.” – Judith Miller
History of National Garage Sale Day
In 2001, C. Daniel Rhodes of Alabama created the day. He created the day after seeing neighbors having sales on different weekends. Daniel Rhodes thought it would be more convenient if they all had them on the same weekend. C. Daniel Rhodes is also the founder of Brother’s Day and Mulligan Day.

How to Celebrate the day
The best way to celebrate the day is by putting a table on your lawn or garage, putting up some signs, and raking in the eager crowds for a chance to walk away with a modestly priced, pre-loved treat. You can use the hashtag #NationalGarageSaleDay to post on social media.
