Shop smart, local, and green at Northfield's biggest garage sale. Carleton's 19th annual Lighten Up! Garage Sale will be held on Friday, June 26, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, June 27, from 8 a.m. to noon in Laird Stadium. Saturday will be the “bag sale” ($10 for a full IKEA size bag)

Students donate clothing, winter apparel, furniture, household items, books, bedding, sport equipment, and other fun things! All proceeds go to our community partners: Project Friendship, Special Olympics, and The Northfield Union of Youth. Each organization dedicates over 400 hours to prepare for the sale.

Lighten Up! diverts thousands of pounds from the landfill each year, finding a home for every usable donation through the sale or community vendors.
