Yard Sales

Planning a Yard Sale

Rules that Town of Clayton code requires you to follow when hosting a yard sale: 

  • We only allow yard sales on the property owner's property.
  • The Town only allows yard sales once every four months at the same house.
  • And we don't allow yard sales to last more than 3 days in a row.

Yard Sale Sign Requirements 

  • You can not post yard sale signs on street lights, power poles, or in the medians of the road.
  • You can not post yard sales signs in the right-of-way. A good rule of thumb for locating the right-of-way is to consider any land that is between a utility pole/sidewalk and the street will be right-of-way.
  • Yard sale signs can not exceed 4 square feet in size.
  • You can not put your sign up more than 7 days before your yard sale date and you need to take the signs down within 2 days following the sale.
