FRIDAY TICKETS: Friday tickets are on sale at Austin-area Randalls beginning Oct 12! Purchase your $8 ticket at the Customer Service counter in advance. Tickets will be $10 at the door.

PARKING: The Settlement Club is happy to underwrite parking for our shoppers. Preview Party and Friday tickets have a garage parking pass attached to them. Hand that to the parking garage attendant when you enter. Saturday and Sunday shoppers will be handed a parking pass when they pull into the garage driveway. While parking is free to shoppers, please know that the garage does fill up. We encourage you to carpool with friends and family to save room.

SHOPPING: At The Sale, Palmer Events Center is divided into 21 departments. Once you have found all the items you want from a department, please take it to a volunteer in a blue vest so that they can price and bag the items for you. Volunteers can only bag items from the department they are in, so be sure to do so before you move on to the next department. Once you are completely finished shopping, take all your priced items to the checkout tables in the lobby to pay.

PREVIEW PARTY: If you have a ticket to the Preview Party, there will be two lines. One is a 6 pm ticket line for the Private Shopping hour for sponsors. These are blue tickets. The other is a 7 pm ticket line for the Preview Party. These are white tickets. Please make sure you are in the correct line when you get there. Once you get in the doors, you’ll exchange your ticket for a wrist band. The wrist band will get you in to shopping, a drink ticket and a food ticket.

Giving for Living

The Annual Garage & Estate Sale provides an opportunity for The Settlement Home for Children to not only help the children we serve, but also the Central Texas nonprofit community. Through our Giving for Living program on Sunday, The Settlement Home provides certificates to more than 35 Central Texas non-profits and each student at Lanier High School. These nonprofits distribute the $25 certificates to their clients who are in need of essential items, such as linens, baby clothes and toys, kitchen items and more. The clients can then use them pay for items at the sale. In 2016, we provided $61,600 worth of merchandise to people in need by redeeming 1,232 certificates!
Sponsors are needed to support this program. If you are interested in sponsoring Giving for Living certificates, email: [email protected]
