Add Your Sale | View Map with Sales & Info | Important Notes

VIEW LOCAL SALES or ADD YOUR OWN!As a service to Winthrop Harbor residents and visitors, the Village posts a listing of Winthrop Harbor garage & yard sales, including dates, times and locations, here on the community Web Site. There is no charge to add your sale to the listing, and the only requirement is that the sale is located within the Village of Winthrop Harbor.

For shoppers, we encourage you to visit this page often, as we'll update the list each time a new sale is added!

Garage sale information should be submitted no later than one week prior to the date of the sale. All submissions are subject to review by Village staff*. This service is provided as a courtesy to our residents, who are also encouraged to advertise their garage sales in the local media for best results.

Current sales are shown on the map below. Click each marker for dates, times and details. (Zoom out to see all sales!)
