Regulating Garage Sales....Really?
Posted by Dave Trabert on Wednesday, September 05, 2012
I just experienced a new government intrusion into free market activities...I had to buy a permit from the City of Wichita to have a garage sale at my house.  I even had to certify that "I have not held, nor has any member of my immediate family held within the last six months, a miscellaneous sale the at address listed on this form"

Really?  The City of Wichita feels the need to restrict how frequently I can hold a garage sale?  And boy, do they mean business.  "Only two sales are allowed in a calendar year for a maximum of three consecutive days.  Holding more than two sales per household in a calendar year and/or not allowing six months between sales is punishable by a maximum fine of $100 per day of violation."  Can I get in trouble if I buy something from an 'illegal' yard sale?  If so, could I cut a deal by tipping them off to the black market lemonade stand down the street?

This is really getting out of control.
