When is the sale?

I'm looking for a specific item, is there a way to search online?

Yes, the residents that registered and provided a list of items are now searchable through the box on the left.

Can we bring a golf cart to drive around?

People have brought golf carts in the past; however, it is not legal to drive a golf cart on city streets, as they are a non-licenseable vehicle.
We are not aware of anyone receiving a ticket, but legally you are not allowed.

How do I sign up to participate?

This sale is intended to be a way for our residents in Countrywood to make some money getting rid of their used stuff. It is not a place for people to come from all over Memphis and set up on the side of the road or in a vacant house's yard to sell things. With the help of the Police, we will be actively looking for people set up on the side of the street/ sidewalk or at houses that are vacant, bank-owned, or HUD homes. People selling used items (typical yard sale stuff) do not need any special license; however, vendors selling items they have made or new items will need to obtain a license from the Shelby County code enforcement. In the past, St Francis opened their parking lot for those interested in selling that were not Countrywood residents. Below is their information.

St Francis Information - is still to be determined if they will have spaces available
