Are permits required for yard sales?

No, permits are not required. A yard sale cannot exceed five consecutive days and only two sales are allowed per calendar year whether alone or as a group. Sales are prohibited from storage units and signs are not allowed on public property and must be picked up after the sale.

While there is not a fee for private yard sales, there is $5 permit fee for a rummage sale.

If you need to contact Planning with any questions, please call 509-585-4416.
