Default Garage/Yard Sale Question

Does anyone know if we need a permit to have a yard sale here in Knoxville? Also, are there any rules about where/how signs can be posted?

Thanks!

No, no permit is needed. Signs are usually on telephone poles rather than trees, but I don't know if there's a law about it.

My friend in Halls had a garage sale today, and her signs kept getting taken down. I could understand if the signs were old. Her neighbor said the same thing happened to her a few months ago. I saw signs on phone polls in Fountain City, is this a Halls thing? no signs allowed? What about other parts of Knoxville? If people can't afford to place an ad, and they're not allowed to post signs in Halls, how do you advertise for it?

Does he/she know who took down the signs?

If its in the city, it was probably city maintenance. I am very familiar with the drill, being a local musician. Put them at the beginning of the week, maybe Sunday. Thursday or Friday are the removal days. A better idea is to get small yard signs. Ask a neighbor along the main thoroughfare if you may temporarily post in the yard. This seems to be the main method in west Knoxville.

No she doesn't know who took them down, but she knows that some congressman Larry something doesn't like signs up. If it was city maintenance, I still don't understand it. It seems they were only taken down on the main roads, but that's where people need to see them. There aren't any houses, just businesses and churches. Well thanks for the info.
