With many people doing their summer cleaning, garage sales have been a common sight in Wayzata lately. However, the City of Wayzata does have some guidelines for sales.

According to the 2009 Wayzata City Code (Section 801.16.19), garage sales have the following rules:

1. Merchandise offered for sale shall be the personal property of the occupant.
2. Sales shall be limited to a maximum of four (4) consecutive days and occurring
no more than two (2) times within one (1) calendar year per property.
3. All goods shall be confined within a building and improved driveway with no
display occurring within other portions of the front yard.
4. Signs shall be governed by Section 801.27 of this Ordinance.

Section 801.27 states that "Rummage (garage) sale signs only on private property not exceeding six (6) square feet in area and displayed only during the time of the sale."
