POSTPONED: Madison & The Chathams Town-wide Yard Sale

April 29, 2023 at 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

$10 gets your address & sale items on a digital map shared with the public

Despite wanting to hold this community event rain or shine, the weather forecast for April 29 calls for continuous and heavy rain. Therefore, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone it to Saturday, May 6. We realize this may be a big inconvenience, but feel it is necessary. We will email all registrants to confirm if you wish to be on the map for the new date.

Note: You are welcome to hold a yard sale on your own on April 29 and you can also be on the map for next week if you choose to do both Saturdays.

Please direct any immediate concerns to the Environmental Commission of The Chathams and Madison at MEC@rosenet.org


Registration Deadline: Wednesday, April 26 @ 11:55 PM to get your address and sale items on the map. 

These documents will also be shared in local media and on town sites.

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Now is the time to start checking your closets, basement, and garage for those hidden treasures and prepare to host a yard sale at the at this community event. Scroll to the bottom of this page and register to have your address and a list of your items for sale to appear on a digital, printable map.
