You may either leave your vehicle parked in your selling space for the ENTIRE duration of the sale, or park it outside of the selling area.  Your selling space will be marked on the asphalt and you will be provided your space number and a map at sign in.
If you elect to move your vehicle out of your selling spot, you must do so prior to 7:30 am.

Please be courteous of those around you and do not block another vendor's space while loading and unloading.  Please keep traffic lane as open as possible to allow all vendors equal opportunity to set up their selling areas.

Do not damage Mehlville High School grounds in any way.  This includes driving stakes into the asphalt or driving/parking on the grass.  Due to the size and weight restrictions, only residential vehicles and their trailers will be allowed on the Mehlville High School parking area.  If you have questions about the types of vehicles allowed, please contact us for clarification prior to registering.  

You must ensure the safety of your shoppers by double-checking that any large items are properly supported or secured in your space.  We are not responsible for any injury during the sale, (including set up and clean up).

The sale will conclude at 2:00 pm and we ask that you have your items picked up and space cleaned up and vacated by 3:30 pm.

You may NOT move your vehicle back into the sale area earlier than 2:15 pm for safety reasons.  If you need to leave before 2:15 pm, keep your vehicle out of the sale area. Please take extreme caution and consideration for other vendors/shoppers before, during and after the sale.

You must remove all unsold/unwanted items.  This includes boxes, bags, and other trash.

This event is planned to take place rain or shine.  In the event of serious inclement weather, the decision to cancel will be made by the Tailgate Sale Chairpersons and you will be notified via phone numbers on file as soon as possible.  Updates will also be available via Facebook.  If you are registered on Facebook, please "like" us (MHS Tailgate Sale).

Vendors will be required to leave the sale if we feel that our regulations have been violated or if we feel that the sale is being disrupted.  No refund will be provided.

We reserve the right to prohibit the sale of items that we feel are inappropriate for sale on school grounds.  If these items are identified during the sale, the vendor will be asked to remove the item(s) immediately.  Vendors will be required to leave the sale for failure to comply.
