Having a garage sale?
Garage sale season is ramping up. If you’re planning to have one, keep in mind that signs of any kind should not be posted on utility poles, traffic signs or public structures, nor in a public right of way like a sidewalk.
In Marysville, signs may be displayed no more than three days before the sale and must be removed within 24 hours of the sale. Marysville residents are permitted no more than two sale events for any home per year, and they can’t last more than three consecutive days.
Everett has the same rules. And residents are reminded to remove unsold items from their yards when the sale is over.
Lynnwood is more stringent. Signs can be placed no more than one day before a sale — and you’re only allowed three signs off your own property. They also must be no bigger than four square feet.
Monroe may have the longest list of garage sale sign do’s and don’ts. There are detailed rules about where signs that help folks find your sale can be placed, as well as what times of day. The rules even limit what you can write on the signs. Signs that break the rules can be confiscated, and you’ll need to pay $25 to get them back.
Look up your city’s municipal code for local rules.
