Even many longtime Austinites might not realize that this tradition has been around since 1977, when gas shortages inspired the idea of having all garage sales in one location. The City-Wide Garage Sale has evolved since then to turn the Palmer Events Center into the vintage and collectibles marketplace, but the second-hand spirit remains the same.

Dedicated shoppers can show up at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday only for a chance at getting early-bird deals.

Details: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. $6-$12. Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road. citywidegaragesale.com.
