I’ve been busy in the “back room” of roseway.org. As always, I’m hoping things go flawlessly and that you haven’t noticed. That’s the way it’s supposed to be.
Sometimes when I mess around with the gears and sprockets of a website, something goes wrong. If, as you browse around here you notice something isn’t working quite right, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help.

The deadline to submit forms for the Roseway Garage Sale ended today. Thank you to everyone who submitted your forms! Below, you can find printable signage for your sale, but we suggest if you really want to attract buyers, pick up some florescent neon signs and write in big bold letters and post in conspicuous areas like major cross streets.
For our sellers – Here are some tips for a successful, fun and SAFE garage sale
- Clearly mark the price of each item. (Printed stickers from retail stores, like Target, are very effective)
- Price items to sell. Remember buyers are looking for a bargain and you don’t want to have items left at the end of a day.
- Signage is important. Spend a little time making quality signs that are clear and easy to read and Remember to take them down at the end of the day…don’t leave them up.
- Organize your merchandise. Use tables, stands or whatever you have to provide shoppers a clear visibility of your items.
- Remember you are inviting the public into your space. Don’t leave money in the open. It’s also probably best to not allow strangers into the house to use the bathroom. Direct them to the nearest public restroom (Safeway, Albertsons, etc)
- Protect yourself from sun and heat. Stay Hydrated!!
- Never leave your sale unattended.
- Involve your children but keep them protected from the sun and strangers.
ADDRESS MAPS WILL BE AVAILABLE THURSDAY MORNING. We are still compiling all the addresses and imputing them into a map format. Please check back Thursday morning the 17th.
Good luck and happy garage sales!
