One of the most discussed days on the calendar in Grain Valley arrives this Saturday as the City Wide Garage Sale is set for Saturday, May 20th. Traditionally held the 3rd Saturday of May, the event is not a city-sponsored event, but a spring cleaning tradition in the community.
Valley News has published a Garage Sale Directory (link below and on the 2023 Garage Sale Directory page). Shoppers may click on any of the pins on the map to see more detail about the hours and items at each location.
For those with garage sale leftovers, Your Truman Thrift Store, a local, family-owned thrift store located in Historic Old Northeast Kansas City, is offering pick up service on Tuesday, May 23rd.
Jill Althaus with Your Truman Thrift Store said the store supports the Jennifer Ireland Foundation, Inc, a non-profit organization based out of Blue Springs which provides financial assistance to people fighting cancer in the metropolitan area by giving grants to help with their expenses.
Items must be bagged or boxed so drivers can load and go. A tax receipt will be provided at pick up. The store will accept clothing, household items, gently used furniture in good condition, (no stains, tears, and cannot be broken), and many other miscellaneous items.
To schedule a pickup, call their donation line at 816-554-0870 or visit their website www.yourtrumanthriftstore.com. They can also be contacted via Facebook at Your Truman Thrift Store.
All items must be bagged/boxed so our drivers can just load and go. We will leave your tax receipt once picked up.
