On Saturday, September 15, 2012 it seemed that every house in Mayfair had a big yellow sign declaring "Garage Sale" here. And with more than 100 garage sales across Mayfair, everyone who participated said it was a big success and they are sure next year is going to be bigger and better. However if it is bigger and better, one participate noted, "We may have to hire a traffic cop".
Mayfair residents held sales at their own homes with common advertising organized and paid for Mayfair Neighbors, Inc. All participants received a yard sign in advance and sale locations were mapped and promoted on Craigslist, Mayfairdenver.org and other online services. Printed maps were available at each sale location. While advertised times were from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., many participants stayed open longer.
