You have questions and we have answers!
Can I use my registration form from last year?
No. We need you to download this year’s form. It has all of the correct fees, deadlines, and contact information for this year’s event. If you use an old form, you may get important deadlines wrong, or send your registration to the wrong address. We don’t want that!
Where can I get a 2022 registration form?
Click right here!
I can’t find a link to the Town Hall form anywhere!
You need to email email@example.com for a copy of this year’s Town Center Form.
Is this event even safe?
We are hopeful that since yard sales take place primarily outdoors (or in opened up garages that have a lot of airflow), that the level of risk in hosting or shopping a yard sale is minimal. We ask everyone participating this year to please follow state and local safety guidelines and restrictions. This includes, but isn’t limited to: wearing a mask if required by local regulations, perusing goods while maintaining a reasonable distance between yourself and others, washing and/or sanitizing your hands frequently, and sanitizing frequently touched objects.
What will you be doing to ensure social distancing?
We are reducing the number of spaces available at the Town Hall and Damon House this year to help enable social distancing. We will also be restricting foot traffic flow through the Damon House area and counting people entering the area to ensure we are not going over the state mandated limits for outdoor gatherings. Because of this, you may be asked to wait before entering this area. We appreciate everyone’s patience with things needing to be a little different this year.
How do I submit my registration form?
For the first time ever, you can email your filled out registration form directly to firstname.lastname@example.org! If you do this, please keep in mind that we need to get your registration fee before you can be listed on any of our materials. The registration fee due is based on the day we get the fee, not the form, so in your email, please set up a drop-off time for your payment.
If you prefer to print your form, you can either mail it to the address on the bottom of the 2022 form, or email email@example.com to coordinate drop-off. If you’re getting close to the registration deadline, we recommend setting up a drop-off appointment, since we will be accepting forms based on the date they are received, not the postmark date.
Where do I send my registration form?
Send your form and a check for the appropriate amount to the address printed on the 2022 Registration Form. If you’re getting close to the registration deadline, we recommend setting up a drop-off appointment, since we will be accepting forms based on the date they are received rather than the postmark date. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I didn’t get a confirmation email. Is that okay?
You should get a confirmation email within one week of receipt, but if it’s been a week and you’re still waiting, contact email@example.com!
When are registration forms due?
1) If you want your address to show up on the printed version of our town map, we need your registration form and payment by 6pm on Wednesday, May 4th. If you can’t get it to us by then, we will still accept forms through 6pm on Friday, May 7th, but your address will only show up on the printable list and on the interactive google map.
2) If you want space at the center of town and don’t want to pay a $10 late fee, then we need your form by April 27th. We will accept your forms until 6pm on April 30th with a $10 late fee, but we do recommend getting this form in early, since we again have less space this year and anticipate these spaces to go quickly.
I think I missed the deadline! What can I do?
If it’s after 6pm on May 4th, we’ve already brought the map to the printer. If you still wanted your address listed online, though, we will be accepting forms until 6pm on May 6th.
Can I sell food?
As long as you get the proper permits from town hall, you are more than welcome to sell food at this event!
Does it cost more to get space at Town Hall or Damon House?
Yes! It costs $5 more than listing your address.
How much does it cost to register my address?
It’s $20 to register your address by April 29th, 2022. If you miss that deadline, we’ll still be taking forms until 6pm on May 6th, but the fee is increased to $30. Please note that you will only be on the printed map if you submit your form before 6pm on May 4th.
How much does it cost to get space at the Town Center?
As long as you get us your form by April 27th, it’ll cost you $25 to reserve space at the Town Center. If you’re running late and miss that cut-off date, we’ll still accept your form (if there’s still space! These spaces are first come, first served) until 6pm on April 28th for $35.
Sometimes you say “Town Center,” but other times you say “Town Hall” or “Damon House.” Which is it?
This year the town has given us permission to use both spaces, so if you request space with the Town Center Form, you may wind up having some space reserved either at Town Hall or, more likely, across the street at Damon House. Because we are trying to enforce social distancing this year, there are fewer spaces available at Town Hall than usual, so most of our Town Center spaces are at Damon House.
Who do I make checks payable to?
“Holden Girl Scouts”
How can I pay?
We prefer checks (they’re safer for you and for us!), but if you absolutely must pay with cash, please arrange an in-person drop-off before hand so we have a receipt handy!
A receipt helps us both track whether you’ve paid, so it’s very important that you arrange an in-person drop off. We don’t want cash payments getting lost in the mail or stolen!
And as for online payments, we are still not accepting those at this time.
