National Garage Sale Day comes on 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 may be a treasure for another person. On this Garage Sale Day, you will see people finding the great deals at these neighbourhood 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 National Garage Sale Day. He created the day after seeing neighbours 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.
