Garage Sale

Following a precedent set last year, the Township has scheduled the second annual Springfield “town-wide” garage sale.  On Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18, residents are encouraged to join their neighbors and sell their goods at home from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day in a widely publicized “permit-free” and “registration-free” community sale.

The first townwide garage sale was held last year in October to coincide with the Springfield Patriot Chamber of Commerce Fall Festival.  It was started by then-Mayor Ziad Andrew Shehady and while the permit and registration was not waived last year, the fees that were collected were donated to local charity Springfield H.O.P.E.  In an e-mail, Committeeman Shehady commented about the sale, “I think it would have been more effective to hold this in the early fall when people aren’t away on summer vacation and I did express to the Township Committee my hope that the nominal fee could again be donated to charity, but this is a great community event regardless.  I hope we can make this an annual tradition for years to come.”

Shehady also announced a feature he created on his website “to assist shoppers easily locate current garage sales.”  He explained he put together an easy to navigate map that pinpoints garage sales in town and invited anyone to visit http://garagesales.springfieldnj.us to view the map or submit a garage sale listing.

The Township advises anyone hosting a garage sale to send an e-mail to communitygaragesale@springfield-nj.us with the date(s) and location of your garage sale so it can be listed on the website.  According to the Township website, “The purpose is to have a coordinated community event to get people to explore Springfield and appreciate the pride of Springfield!”
