I'm having a garage sale in the southwestern portion of the US and want to advertise in Spanish, craigslist etc. for primarily Mexicans who make up a large part of potential buyers. Anyone know an idiomatic or common phrase for "garage sale?"

  • mindreader - even if you add the missing "g" in "garage", a sale of the garage "venta del garage" still isn't the same as a "venta de garage" - geofc Jun 6, 2010 flag
  • lol-that will be interesting when someone shows up to buy the garage - 0074b507 Apr 28, 2011 flag

Wow, that's a good one, I am interested to see if there is a term. If not you could just say something like 'Venta de objetos usados' Not real catchy tho is it.
