Dupaco Community-Wide Garage Sales

Community-Wide Garage Sales 

Why does Dupaco sponsor the garage sale event? As a credit union, Dupaco is about people, thrift, and the community. That's also what the Community-Wide Garage Sale is about, and why it's a perfect fit for us.

Dupaco's community-wide garage sales ended the 2016 season with over 790 registered sales in the following communities: Dubuque, Manchester, Platteville, Cedar Rapids, and Carroll.

Stay tuned for 2017 dates to be announced by January 1, 2017!

Here's how you can participate in the Community-Wide Garage Sale in 2017:

  • Host a sale and register your sale. Registering a sale is absolutely FREE, and is a community service made possible by Dupaco and garage sale sponsors in each community. When registration opens, register your sale here at no cost for free publicity online and in the printed directory. Then, stop by any Dupaco branch and pick up a free sale kit with price stickers, signage, balloons and more.

  • Shop at local garage sales. When the sale dates near and garage sales are registered, their locations—along with a description of sale items—can be searched online. Save your favorite sales, and create a printable shopping route online, all at no cost! Printed directories, including a map of registered sale locations, sale times and descriptions, will also be made available the week of the sales.

Hi Char, garage sale directories are available at the Dupaco branches in the community that the sales are in by Thursday the week of the sale. Otherwise, you can build your own itinerary online at www.dupacogaragesales.com

Hi Jim, yes, you can list a car on your garage sale! When you create your new sale on the garage sale site, there is a Vehicles category, and you can select the vehicle type that you're trying to sell.

 • 80 days 6 hrs 6 mins 46 secs ago
do you have to be in the cities listed to post? for example Maquoketa city wide is on April 16th would we be able to post and get the kit or is it only for those cities?

Hi Jacob, we keep our sales within a close proximity to the communities they mainly reside in. In addition, the Maquoketa sale is a different date than the Dubuque area, so we would not publish them.

The garage sale directories will be published in local newspapers the same week of the sale. You can find the sale dates at the top of this webpage. Thanks, Erica!

I would have to agree with Georgia- the way it was put together last year was super confusing. I had no idea what anyone had-was very disapointed in the set up. Please go back to listing...Also Thanks for having this every year!

Thank you for your feedback. We're looking for a way to organize the printed sale directory so that it is useful to users, but doesn't require as many hours to assemble. Organizing the sales by quadrant (aka neighborhood) was done for years by hand in each of the communities we host a sale. As you can imagine, it is a big task requiring several days of work with the added complication of having printer deadlines. However, we'll keep looking for ways to better organize and present sale info to shoppers!

please go back to the way you listed garage sales last year....many people complaining about not being able to find the sales this year because you didn't post them by area they are in!! But thanks also for having this every year!!

Georgia, since the community sales have grown, the process of manually putting each sale into a map quadrant has become very time intensive, so we opted not to group sales by map quadrant in the directory this year. We'll put it into our notes to discuss again next year. Thanks!

Hi. Why isn't there an Asbury Community Site? Asbury is different that Dubuque and it would be nice to post and ad. Thanks

The City of Asbury coordinates their own sale, and typically Asbury sales are on a different weekend than Dubuque's. Asbury sales happening on the same weekend as Dubuque's can be entered on our site and will receive publicity. Thanks!

 

Bring back street search!!!

In the past one could enter the street name and see if any sales were on certain streets. Easy to plan a route on day of sale. I cannot find this on the new site--if you did away with that feature many are saying we REALLY miss this feature.

Shirley, You can still search by exact address or street name, but we are presently working on improving the accuracy of searching with street name. If you have questions, email me at jhanniford@dupaco.com.
