2012 Minnesota City Wide Garage Sales List

UPDATE:  See the 2013 Minnesota City Wide Garage Sales List HERE

The 2012 list of city-wide, town-wide and neighborhood sales in Minnesota is here!  I would say that is a sure sign of spring.

All of the sales below are those that I have been able to confirm the dates. If you have confirmed information of additional sales, please e-mail me (or leave a comment here) and I will get it added to the list.

Please help support this list by “liking” us on Facebook, subscribing to Thrifty Minnesota (see upper right corner), checking out our advertisers or telling your friends about Thrifty Minnesota.  Any help is appreciated!
