Discover Hallowell at Our Community Yard Sale

Saturday, May 26 (Rain Date: Sunday, May 27)

Time to clean up and clean out for spring and then sell you items at our Discover Hallowell Community Yard Sale. There are two ways to share your items no longer needed with those who are looking for that one, perfect item.

  • Host a yard or garage sale at your Hallowell home. Hallowell city ordinances apply and you will be responsible for making signs pointing toward your location. Optional: register your address with us to be included with our handout placed in stores. There are no specific hours for individual yard sales, your choice.
  • Join us at Stevens Commons where you can set up your own table and have access to shoppers from the Farmer’s Market. We’ll take care of advertising, but you must bring your own table(s) and items to sell, and you absolutely MUST take everything with you when you leave. The hours for Stevens Commons will be 9am to 1pm.
  • Most of all, we’re looking for shoppers! Drive or walk around Hallowell and shop at all the yard sales! Don’t forget to visit the Farmer’s Market at Steven’s Commons!

If you’re joining us at Stevens Commons, you’ll need to register so we can insure enough room for everyone. If you’re hosting your own sale, you only need to register if you would like your address listed in our handout made available to shoppers the day of the Yard Sale-available in local stores and at Stevens Commons. Register at:
