About The Garage & Estate Sale


An Austin tradition, The Sale is a multi-day shopping event open to the public.

Bring your friends and family, and have fun browsing our 21 departments. From jewelry to tools to holiday supplies there is something for everyone!

This event benefits The Settlement Home for Children (The Home). The Home has been a part of the Austin community since it was established in 1916. Our mission is to promote healing and growth in children, young adults and families by providing a continuum of care, support and resources. We serve individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse and neglect.

The 45th Annual Garage & Estate Sale is November 6-8, 2020.

Giving for Living

The Annual Garage & Estate Sale not only provides critical funding to support The Settlement Home but also creates opportunities for other nonprofits in the Central Texas community. In 2001, Giving for Living was established in order to assure that every person, from any socioeconomic status, could benefit from merchandise sold at The Sale. By partnering with nonprofits in the Austin area, we are able to provide shopping certificates to individuals and families deemed to be in the greatest need. Anyone selected to receive a certificate may choose up to $25 worth of merchandise from any of our 21 Garage & Estate Sale “departments” free of charge. To date, more than 25,000 certificates have been distributed to over 100 nonprofit agencies and schools throughout the community. In 2018, 2,632 certificates were redeemed by the clients of over 50 nonprofits at The Sale.
