i've seen hot dogs, chips, candy, pop, water at neighborhood garage sales. people were totally into it. we bought sealed drinks and were very grateful!
carimeli:Yeah, that's why I was trying to figure out if there were rules...I want to do it! I keep hearing having a few refreshments are big sellers. Maybe I'll just plan on doing it until someone comes along and says I can't. :)
My philosophy in instances like this one... It's better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission. LOL!
LoriZ:Maybe it depends on the city? I know my hometown (north of Dayton) makes a huge deal of stating in the newspaper that no food can be sold at any garage sale.
People have been selling food at my annual neighborhood yard sale (city of Dayton). The fee to sell anything is only about $5 for ad costs so I really doubt they're buying a permit. I say just sell stuff and plead innocent if anyone tries to stop you. I think you'd be small potatoes for the board of health or police so they're not likely to issue a fine. I'd think of it like a bake sale or lemonade stand!
Oh, and I think the pre-packaged food would be even less of an issue.
Also, my neighborhood has a form you fill out listing the highlights for your stop. I'm pretty sure there's a food box-so they're actually encouraging food sales, IMO.
