Garage Sales

Hamtramck residents who desire to hold a garage sale (yard sale, rummage sale, basement sale or any other similarly termed sale) must first obtain a permit form the City Clerk. The permit must be posted at the location of the sale so as to be visible to the public. Residents are limited to (2) two permits within any 12-month period and each sale may not run longer than (3) three consecutive days. The cost for the permit is $5.  No signs advertising a garage sale shall be placed upon any public property. (2) Two signs are allowed on private property with the consent of the property owner and must be removed within 24 hours of the conclusion of the sale.
