Citywide garage sales are May 1-3
The city will host the 8th Annual Tecumseh Garage Sales event on Thursday, May 1, Friday, May 2, and Saturday, May 3.
Residents are encouraged to take part in the citywide event, held each spring. The Garage Sales are permit free, as the city will waive its usual permit process for the three-day event.
The starting time for the sales is 9 a.m., with closing time to be at the seller’s choice. Some sales will run all three days, while others will operate on selected dates.
Maps will be provided for garage sale shoppers and will be available at Tecumseh Big Boy, any Perky Pantry and Tecumseh City Hall. The list will also be available on the city’s website at mytecumseh.org.
Tecumseh Township residents will also be hosting sales during the event.
The following suggestions are provided for those participating in the garage sales:
• Several garage sales on a street bring many buyers, so residents should encourage neighbors to participate.
• Residents should ensure yards and walkways are free of holes and debris that might be a trip hazard.
• The city allows only one garage sale sign per property and no signs displayed in the city right-of-way.
• The Appleumpkin Scarecrow Committee needs clothes for scarecrows, so donations of leftover clothing would be welcomed. Items may be dropped off to Stephanie Dinius at the main branch of United Bank and Trust in Tecumseh.
