Village-Wide Garage Sale IV

This year’s village-wide garage sale will be June 2, 2007! All households in Scotia and adjacent areas of Glenville are invited! Suggested hours of the sale are 9 AM to 4 PM, but each family can set their own hours to suit their sale.

Once again we’ll create a map showing where all the sales are. On the back of the map, all the sales will be listed alphabetically by street. Together the map and the list will make it easy for everyone to find the garage sales all over the Village! We’ll also take out a general ad in the Schenectady Gazette for publicity in the days leading up to the sale.

The map will be available at many Scotia businesses on Friday, June 1. Business with maps will have a neon-orange sign in their windows saying “GARAGE SALE MAPS HERE”. These maps will only be available at the businesses, so stop in your favorite Scotia business and pick one up!

To put your sale “on the map”, please give us the address of your sale and make a contribution of $7.00 to cover costs of printing the maps and the newspaper ad. All proceeds from the Village-Wide Garage Sale will go to the Flint House Museum and the Children’s Museum. Checks are preferred. Please make them out to "Cash" so they can be turned over to the Museums at the end of the sale after costs are covered.

The critical dates are:

May 29 - Last day to register a sale, Deadline 5 PM
June 1 - Maps available at local businesses
June 2 - Sale Day!

If you’d like more information, call 372-6919 or email Scotiasale@att.net I’ll get back to you promptly with the information you need! Questions? Click Here

Well, there was some thoughts about putting the map online but one of the goals is to introduce more people to what's available in the Village of Scotia.

Having the maps available in local participating stores only is intentional. ;)

This might seem like a rude question but does all profit have to be donated?

While this pertains to an old post I think I can answer you
The profits only refer to the one time fee to put your Garage Sale in the Village Map. So whatever remains of the fee to be included will go be donated. You don't have to donate any of profits from your sale. Once you pay the initial fee to be on the map and any other promotion done to garage sales.
