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 from]. It has all of the correct fees, deadlines, and contact information for this year’s event. If you use an old form, you might get confused and we don’t want that!
Where can I get a 2021 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, 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?
Either mail your form and check to the address on the bottom of the [2021 form] or email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a contactless 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 [2021 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 email@example.com.
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 Julie McCarthy (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
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 April 30th. Registration forms received by 6pm on May 7th, 2021 will make it on the map only with an extra $10 late fee. If you get it to us later than that, or without the late fee, your address will only show up on the online 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 23rd. 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 there is less space this year and it will fill up even faster than usual.
I think I missed the deadline! What can I do?
If it’s after 6pm on May 7th, we’ve already brought the map to the printer and you’re out of luck.
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 23rd, 2021. If you miss that deadline, we’ll still be taking forms until 6pm on May 7th, but the fee is increased to $30.
How much does it cost to get space at the Town Center?
As long as you get us your form by April 23rd, 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!) until 6pm on April 30th 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”
Can I pay online?
Not this year! We’re working on getting online payments up and running for next year!
Who can I contact if I have questions?
Julie McCarthy is our registration maven this year. Contact her at email@example.com. Alternately, you can always contact Holden Girl Scouts on this website or on our Facebook page!
