Greater Longfellow Garage Sale 2019!


By signing up to participate in the Neighborhood Garage Sale, you are also agreeing to take part as a potential vendor to Greater Robot Grab participants (detail about the GRG can be found here).

What does this mean for you?

By registering to take part in 2019’s Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale, you are also agreeing to be a “vendor” in our collaborative community art project, the Greater Robot Grab. Twenty-Five participating youth will receive a $5 voucher to purchase found objects at a garage sale of their choice (any listed on our map of registered participating residents).

  • Vouchers are NOT exchangeable for cash BY THE PARTICIPANT (Only vendors can redeem them for cash)
  • Vendors will NOT GIVE PARTICIPANTS CHANGE for the voucher’s remaining unspent value. Vouchers also cannot be combined to purchase items exceeding the cost of $5


How do Vendors exchange received vouchers for money?

After the Garage Sale venders with vouchers, have one (1) month (Deadline:  Tuesday, July 9, 2019) to redeem their voucher with LCC for cash:

  • Bring vouchers in to the LCC office during business hours (10am-4pm M-F)
  • OR mail them to our office [Longfellow Community Council, 2727 26th Ave S., Minneapolis, MN 55406] postmarked by July 9, 2019

Any other rules you should know?

Yep! Here are the rules participants are also given:

  • Vouchers are NOT redeemable for cash at any garage sale site, they are only good for purchasing “robot parts”
  •  A voucher can only be used at a single garage sale location, no returns and no change will be given (We want to make this process as easy as possible for residents hosting garage sales.)
  • More than one “robot part” may be purchased with a voucher if combined total is $5 or less
  • Vouchers cannot be combined to purchase larger items
  • Limit of two (2) vouchers per family/household
