    When we had a garage sale, somebody took out sign. We notice people stop coming over, so we went to check our main street sign and it was gone. My son took long time to make it and he was very proud of it. He planned this garage sale and he was very disappointed that happened. It might be just fun for some people, but those actions really hurt somebody’s feeling.

      It could be that the local officials took the sign down. Not sure, but in some areas, such signs violate ordinances. Just a thought.

        I agree with some rules about the sign on the street. But if there is a rule to hurt the people who are living in the town, do not need one or need to be changed. Thank you for your comment.

    Wow, that is quite rude.  Is there an issue about signs in your area?  I know some places you need a sign permit for certain things, but for a garage sale?
    Wow.  I know how it is when children are proud of signs that they make.  It is something they had fun doing.  Sorry to hear that happened.

    That is extremely rude and it is theft. I don't know why anyone would find any reason to do this. Also, they didn't show any consideration about the people who are selling their things. What if they were stealing the sign (and customers) from people who had no money to pay their bills? I find it hard to think any authority took the sign down because I believe they would contact you if you were in violation of an ordinance. I hope that next time you get the chance to double check to make sure you are not violating any rules and I hope no one does that to you or your child again.

      Express10: Thank you for your comment. It was very sad especially for my son who planned this garage sale and wanted to sell his toys. But only good thing came out of it… he had learned there are people like that in the world.
