11th Annual Highlands of Hoffman Estates
Neighborhood Treasure Hunt Garage Sale
YOU ARE INVITED ~ Please Join Us!
Friday & Saturday June 22nd & 23rd from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
We are happy to say that over the past few years we have had an increasing number of homes join us for this neighborhood event. Last year we had over 40 registered homes participating and hope to have just as many this year if not more. The subdivision welcomed over 250 visitors to the sales coming from near and far. We hope to continue this annual event every summer. Check back the week prior to the sale to find out how many homes are participating and what types of things will be for sale. Don’t forget, to get your ‘treasure map’ at home base: 1480 Highland Blvd. ~ Hoffman Estates.

Village of Hoffman Estates requires permits. We will be making sure that the garage sales that have registered with us for the community treasure hunt are registered with the Village of Hoffman Estates. There is a link to the Village of Hoffman Estates website on our registration form for more information on their rules and regulations. Please make sure that you read it so that you are aware of what they required. Please provide us with your email address so that we may send you the permit for your sale.
Map Ads: As one of our Highlands Homes on the map, participation is not required both days. We do ask that you tell us which days/times your sale will be open as a courtesy to those shopping to put that information on our Treasure map. We also allow a short description of your unique items for sale. Please supply us a list of items of interest on your registration form or contact us at (847) 230-7044 by June 15th, 2016.
Advertise Your Garage Sale: While we will be placing an ad in the Daily Herald for the entire neighborhood garage sale, you may feel free to also advertise your sale individually if you wish. Also, we will have signs directing traffic into the neighborhood, but you might wish to have a few signs as allowed by the village rules to direct people to your individual sale.
How to Have a Successful Garage Sale: There is a lot of information on the internet about hosting a successful garage sale. Remember, that while items you sell are things that you no longer want to keep, others will expect them to be clean, usable and well priced. Feel free to ask me for a .pdf file that I can email to you for a wonderful compilation of information that contains checklists, price tags and signs.
Charities & Donations: We encourage all participants to consider donating the items that aren't sold at their sale. We organize a truck to come pick your clothing and small household items (anything that one person can carry) so that you don't have to bring them back into your homes when your sale is over. Please let us know via your registration if you are interested in that option so that we can arrange the pick up. If you can not decide now, please give us a call 847-230-7044.
