adirondacks, usa — More than 200 miles of deals will be open for business Memorial Day weekend with the Great Adirondack Garage Sale.
The Great Adirondack Garage Sale will consist of more than 115 individual garage sales across 18 towns, villages and hamlets in five counties of the Adirondacks. And more sales are being added daily!
Items for sale range from vintage antiques and rustic furniture to jewelry and housewares, toys and clothing to restaurant equipment and sporting goods, and much more.
The event originated in Old Forge and eventually grew north to Inlet then farther to include most of Hamilton County. But this year, it has expanded to stretching from one end of the Adirondacks to the other along Routes 28, 30 and 3. The trail begins in Old Forge and Piseco, reaching up through Hamilton County plus a stretch into Newcomb. The route funnels through Tupper Lake, then out to Childwold and Cranberry Lake, and back up through Lake Clear and Paul Smiths to Malone.
"This has always been a hugely successful event, so we're looking forward to seeing it expand," said ROOST CEO James McKenna. "It's a great way to build momentum for our upcoming summer season."
"Expanding the route to more than 200 miles is exactly what our visitors have been asking for since we started this event, so we are thrilled that it's expanding. This year we'll have more miles, more sales, and more opportunities to shop, and people are getting excited about the sales," said Alex Roalsvig, Long Lake's recreation and tourism director. "At our local tourism offices, we're making sure that we have plenty of places for visitors to find their own unique treasure."
The event runs Friday, May 27 through Sunday, May 29. Each location holding a garage sale has chosen their own hours within those dates. Check out GreatAdirondackGarageSale.com to find sales and map out your route, look for specific items being sold, and find out the times and dates of individual sales.
Shoppers are invited to use the hashtag #ADKGarageSale when posting about all the fun on social media.
For those interested in holding their own sale on the route, there's still time. A sale has to be submitted by Sunday, May 22, in order to be included on printed maps.
