Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale

Our second Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale is in three weeks on Sunday, June 7th. Last year we had nearly 100 participants. The more people who participate, the more everyone will benefit, and the more we can promote our community. So, let's get out the word and please tell your friends that the Greater Aberdeen Garage Sale is happening on Sunday, June 7th.

I have set up a website at Registration is free. Anyone residing in the Greater Aberdeen area is welcome to participate.

Here’s how it works:

  • The community-wide garage sale will take place annually, rain or shine, on the first Sunday in June.
  • Anyone residing in Aberdeen, Hazlet, Holmdel, Keyport, Marlboro, Matawan, Morganville, Old Bridge, Pt Pleasant Beach, or Union Beach is welcome to participate
  • Participation is absolutely free
  • Registration is voluntary. Those who register will have their addresses included in the online directory. E-mail addresses will only be used for garage sale communications
  • The garage sales should run from 9AM to 4PM
  • You don’t need a garage to have a sale
I’ve not checked with other municipalities but Aberdeen Township does not regulate garage sales. If other areas are regulated, please let me know. In the meantime, I’ll do my best to promote the community-wide garage sale.

Of course, I’m doing this on a shoe-string budget so I’ll need all the help I can get. Please be forgiving if the site has some bugs. Suggestions for improvement are most welcome.

Last year, our biggest problem was signage - people couldn't find where the garage sales were taking place. This year, we'll be sorting the directory according to area and provide PDF pages that you can print and post in your area. The pages will have arrows (green tip, red end) and a place to insert your street address.

If you are a local resident, business owner, or organization, and would like your website promoted on, please let me know by emailing me at or posting a comment on this blog.

Spread the word! Sunday, June 7th, is our second annual community-wide garage sale. >>> Read more!

Please do. I cannot wait. By the way is CZ doing anything since she left to help the parents of special needs children she said she would be helping when she bailed. Liar!

CZ actually did participate in some behind the scenes stuff for honoring the special olympians at the last BOE meeting. She made no attempt to gain any public recognition from her actions.

As much as it pains me to say so, she did a nice thing.
