Community-Wide Garage Sales

Saturday, April 25 in Dubuque and Manchester, Iowa
Saturday, May 9 in Platteville, Wis


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.

How you can participate in the Community-Wide Garage Sale:

  • Host a sale. Register your sale in advance (it's free!) beginning March 19. All registered sales will be included in the online directory. To be included in the printed directory of sales, your sale must be registered by the deadline (5 p.m. on Monday, April 13 for Dubuque and Manchester, and 5 p.m. on Monday, April 27 for Platteville.) Registering a sale is absolutely FREE, and is a community service made possible by Dupaco and garage sale sponsors in each community.
  • Shop at local garage sales. As 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! Printed directories, including a map of registered sale locations, sale times and descriptions, will also be made available through The Manchester Press and The Dubuque Advertiser, andThe Platteville Journal.

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.

Saving favorites & route planning

When logged in I can filter the sales, but I cannot save my favorite sales and plan my route. I've tried in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Any ideas?

Beth, I logged in and am seeing the same issue on my end. We're having the tech team look into fixing this asap!

 

see the whole list?
Rita

I cannot seem to view the entire list of sales in either city--Manchester or Dubuque. I get the amount that fits on one page and that's it. Any suggestions?

Rita, for best results please access the site from a computer (vs a tablet or mobile device). In some older browser versions, the site will only show the first 15 sales when you are in "List View". (We know that the site doesn't display the whole list of sales when viewed in Internet Explorer version 8, for example.) If this is happening, you will need to update your browser and that should solve the issue. If not, please call Dupaco: (563) 557-7600, ext 2778. Thanks!

I keep trying to add a sale to my favorites and it won't let me add it. Not sure what's going on? I tried different browsers-firefox and explorer, neither of them work.

Please check that you are logged in. If you are logged in and the site still won't let you save favorites, please give us a call and we can help you troubleshoot: (563) 557-7600, ext 2778. Thanks!
