Register now for the Great Adirondack Garage Sale
Adirondacks, USA — Now in it’s eighth year, the Great Adirondack Garage Sale on May 25-27 has grown to encompass an over 200-mile “trail”, stretching from Malone to Speculator, and Old Forge to Newcomb. Residents are encouraged to sign up to sell during the Memorial Day Weekend event.
“Signing up is easy and free, so make sure your sale is on the map,” said Michelle Clement, director of marketing at the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism.
The 200-mile trail follows NYS routes 28, 30 and 3 and includes Old Forge, Inlet, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Long Lake, Tupper Lake, Lake Clear, Paul Smiths, Malone, Cranberry Lake, Piercefield, Newcomb and Speculator.
The interactive website showcases garage sale locations and allows sellers to list items along with an unlimited number of photos to enhance their listing. The listings include the hours of operation and a sampling of items for sale.
“Memorial Day weekend is traditionally the time when second-homeowners open up their camps and we’re hoping we get people motivated to clear out their garages, attics, and basements, said Alexandra Roalsvig, Director, Parks, Recreation and Tourism for the Town of Long Lake. “The more participation, the bigger impact the event will have, so we encourage our residents and second homeowners to sign up and sell, sell, sell!”
“This event is also a great way for non-profits, churches, and school groups to fundraise,” added Roalsvig. She said the Town of Long Lake will have space available for outside vendors to sell their wares both in Long Lake and Raquette Lake. Call 518-624-3077 and ask for Steph Hample for more information.
Each community will also have a printed map to hand out during the event with mapped Garage Sale locations based on the website data.
