Under Southfield City Code, a permit from the City Clerk’s Office is normally required before residents can hold garage sales. Permits and permit fees will be waived for the seven-day event and registration at city hall is not required. Residents can make or purchase their own signs; however, placement can only be on private property and not in public rights-of-way. Permitted garage sale hours of operation will remain the same from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Participation will also not be counted against the limited number of garage sales that residents are permitted to hold annually.

“This is an opportunity for our residents to celebrate in the summer tradition of good, old fashioned garage sales without the typical added expense of fees and registration,” commented City Clerk Sherikia Hawkins. “We hope that entire neighborhoods come together with block sales and other related community activities as we clean out the closets and shop for those great bargains citywide!”
