Garage Sale Shopping Tips


Secrets to Shopping the Timbercrest-Woods Garage Sale
Neighborhood Garage Sales offer the widest selection of almost anything imaginable.  Finding the items you are looking for – before anyone else, is both exciting and rewarding.   These tips will help you get the most from the Timbercrest-Woods Garage Sale.

Plan Ahead
With an average of 100 homes holding a garage sale on the same day, it is nearly impossible to visit each one early enough to find that special treasure.  Check out the Garage Sale Shopper Flyer before you leave for the Garage Sale – and see who has the things you want.  The Garage Sale Shopper Guide has a list of participating homes, their special items for sale, and a map of the neighborhood.  The Guide can be found at participating garage sales on the day of the sale, or you can preview the Guide before the sale on the Timbercrest-Woods Garage Sale web-site.

Beat the Crowd
Most shoppers park and start their shopping near the major streets that enter the Timbercrest / Woods neighborhood – such as Schaumburg Road, Roselle Road, and Weathersfield Way.  One way to beat the early morning crowd is to start your shopping in the middle of the neighborhood – before the people starting at the edge get there.

Take a Break
Whether you’re looking for a start-up coffee, a cool drink, an ice cream treat, or a great meal – you are just around the corner from many of Schaumburg’s favorite places.  The closest eateries to the Timbercrest-Woods neighborhood are along Roselle Road – between Schaumburg Road and Weathersfield Way.

Hauling Your Treasures
Be prepared to find several (or many) items that catch your eye.  Remember to bring a sturdy shopping bag or even a small cart.  It will really make a difference!

Take Time to Visit
You will find yourself in one of Schaumburg’s most beautiful and popular neighborhoods.  Take time to notice the variety of distinctive homes, wonderful trees, great parks, and friendly neighbors.  If this is a neighborhood that you, or someone you know, would like to be a part of – just give me a call.
