Adirondacks, USA – Now in its ninth year, the Great Adirondack Garage Sale will take place Memorial Day weekend, May 24-26 and the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism is encouraging people to sign up as sale locations.
The 200-mile garage sale “trail” follows state 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. An interactive website showcases garage salelocations and allows sellers to list items along with an unlimited number of photos to enhance their listings.
The listings include the hours of operation and a sampling of items for sale. Each community will also have a printed map to hand out during the event showing garage sale locations based on the website data. Registration is free. Participants can visit GreatAdirondackGarageSale.com for more information and to register.
“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 of parks, recreation and tourism for the town of Long Lake. “This event is also a great way for nonprofits, 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 Tim Helms for more information.
