Garage Sale Trail

May 3 @ 8:00 am - May 5 @ 5:00 pm

Back by popular demand, Ramsey’s second annual Garage Sale Trail!

Meet your neighbors, find bargains, and rummage through miscellaneous treasures. The week of the garage sale, a final map and list of all registered garage sales will be published. The map will be available at www.cityoframsey.com/941, at Ramsey City Hall or at the Public Works Facility.

If you are planning a garage sale at your house, here are some tips to remember:
– Always have at least two people working.
– Lock the doors to your home and do not let shoppers into your house to try on clothes or use the bathroom. Post a sign stating that a bathroom/changing area is not available.
– Keep only a minimal amount of cash on site.
– Keep the money on you at all times, not on a table. A fanny pack or money belt usually works well.
– Have a phone close by to report any suspicious activity.
– Do not accept checks.
– Place expensive items near you.
– Try to place all items outside of the garage and keep the garage door shut.
– Be observant and wary of distractions.
– Acknowledge all shoppers.
– Do not advertise the sale as a “Moving Sale,” which implies the house may be vacant for extended periods.
– Do not answer questions about alarm systems and daytime/nighttime occupancy.
– Do not buy or sell used car seats.

City Ordinance restricts the number of sales at a residence to two per year, each lasting no longer than five days. Always obtain permission from the owner before posting signs on another’s property. For more information on having a garage sale and other home safety tips, contact the Ramsey Police Department at 763-427-6812.

If you have additional unwanted items, we are offering a Spring Recycling Day Event on Saturday, May 4 from 8 a.m.-noon. Some fees are associated. For more information, visit www.cityoframsey.com/1049/SpringFall-Recycling-Events
