Mapleton Hill Rummage Sale, Boulder Rummage Sale

Frequently Asked Questions


After many years, we've learned a lot about how to make this day smooth, easy and fun. Check out these prompts and answers to make your time as worthwhile as possible.


  • Finding the sales: Official MAP and ITEMS FOR SALE will be available 3 days prior to event. Print these out or save them to your smartphone to rummage like a champ!

  • Planning your route: Everyone likes to go where there is the greatest cluster of sales, but consider starting on the outskirts of the map to beat the crowds and get great deals!

  • Parking: It's best to park nearby and plan to walk or bike here (bonus: exercise!) NOTE: City of Boulder parking enforcement officers will ticket illegally parked vehicles. 

  • Bargains: Best to wait until after 10:00 am once the main rush has passed and sellers are more willing to lower prices (participants have been prompted to stay "open" until 2:00 pm, but this can vary).

  • Cash: bring your piggy bank savings and don't expect to use credit cards (however Venmo may be an option at some sales).

  • BYOB: Bring Your Own Bags - you don't want to struggle with all the great finds you need to carry.

  • Rain or Shine: We likely wont reschedule the sale even if there's a chance of rain. Join us in doing a sun dance and know the sale will go on!
