Annual Garage Sale Weekend in The Trails of West Frisco

Garage Sales

Yard Sales

Garage Sales are more hip than ever right now! I remember a time when it was a potential embarrassment for others to know you purchased your side table at a garage sale. Not any more my friends. We are proud to uncover bargains!

The Trails of West Frisco neighborhood-wide garage sales occur twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. This year, 2011, the Fall Yard Sales will occur on September 24 and 25, Saturday and Sunday. They start at 7:00 am and are allowed to go until 8:00 pm. Depending on the heat and families’ schedules: these are the real deciding points for the closing of anyone’s sales.

The Trails of West Frisco neighborhood consists of over 1,700 homes. The homes in this community range in price from $180,000 to $750,000. Tell me there’s not gonna be some good bargain shopping in there! Sales may also be found in the two community pool parking lot areas, both are located off of Trails Parkway. The majority of the sales will be within the neighborhood streets at people’s homes.

The residents are instructed to hold the sales in their front yards, not the garages! I’ll say it again, “not the garages”! The garages back up to alleys, and the neighborhood is very conscientious of people blocking alleys. Signs will notify passers-by of sales, but you may want to grab a map and head up and down the streets! Idea: mark the houses off as you go, therefore, you won’t waste time going by the same house twice!

Head out early, the best goes first! Don’t forget to haggle. If they really want to get rid of it, they should work with you on the price. Bring cash, cash is always good.

As they say, ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” I guarantee you there will be plenty of treasures to be found in The Trails this coming weekend. The Trails of West Frisco neighborhood is located off of Main St. in Frisco, between Teel and Eldorado Parkway. I will see you there!

    If you click on the word map above it will take you directly to a map of the Trails neighborhood showing the streets. There is not a map showing who has garage sales though. Thank you!

    I am so sorry, they were last weekend! The Fall garage sales will occur, but I do not have the dates yet. I’ll post an article with the dates once it’s decided. Thank you for reading!
