Annual City-Wide Yard Sale - June 12 & 13

Join the fun, clean out your house and make some extra $$$ all at the same time! With dozens of yard sales all over the city, bargain hunters from throughout the area will converge on St. Marys these two days.

Don't forget to register Your Sale!
Registering ensures that your address will be listed on our official Town Wide Yare Sale Map flyer, online sale map, and special Facebook Yard Sale Event page. The deadline to be included on the printed maps is Monday, June 8. Late registrations will still be posted online. Click here for a printable registration form.

Registered sellers can pick up two complimentary Yard Sale signs at the Chamber office. You can also choose to have your house specially maked as a 10% Sale by agreeing to donate a minimum of 10% of your yard sale proceeds to a local charity of your choice. You can pick up a special "10% House" poster at the Chamber office to display at your sale.

We encourage local charities to schedule their own fundraising yard sales, rummage sales or bazaars on the weekend of the Town Wide Yard sale, and local businesses are being asked to have sidewalk sales during these days as well. A separate list of business sidewalk sales will be included with the map. There is no charge for businesses to list their sidewalk sales as long as they feature regular merchandise and not yard sale items.

The New ChamberChoice
With the inception of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health insurance companies were held to new mandated coverages and benefits, restrictions to medical underwriting, and new parameters in determining a premium cost for an employersponsored health plan. And with those changes, discounted premiums for health insurance were no longer offered. For more information about how ChamberChoice is responding to these changes, please read this document entitled "A look back, the steps forward, and now". In the coming months, we will provide more information on the new ChamberChoice and what it can do for you.
