Yard Sale Permits

Yard Sale Permits

The Borough of Denver requires a Yard Sale Permit to conduct a garage sale, lawn sale or home sale in the Borough.  The permit is free of charge and shall be valid for two (2) consecutive days. In the event that inclement weather causes postponement of the sale, the permit will be valid for a new date provided the Borough is notified prior to the new date. 

The permit must be displayed at all times during sales.  Garage sales, lawn sales and home sales shall be limited to two (2) per calendar year per residence.  Items to be sold at garage sales, lawn sales and home sales must belong solely to the household where the sale is held. It shall be unlawful to bring in and sell goods belonging to others or to purchase items specifically to sell in a garage sale, lawn sale or home sale, with the exception of such sales conducted on behalf of a charitable or service organization.   

Garage sales, lawn sales, and home sales may be held anytime between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  A permit granted under this chapter does not permit encroachment on the right-of-way (sidewalk or street).  To obtain a permit, please stop at the Municipal Building to complete an application.
