When should I go?
Shoppers who want to get first dibs on the bargains—and appreciate a high energy atmosphere should head to Le Garage Boutique Sale first thing on Saturday. Shoppers begin lining up in the hour prior to doors opening, so expect a crowd. Then again, if you prefer a more leisurely shopping experience, come later in the day Saturday or Sunday. FYI, many retailers will re-stock overnight—and often mark their prices down even more on Sunday! With over 85+ boutiques/designers in attendance, you are not going to miss out whichever way you decide to do it!!
How do I pay?
Admission is $10.00 per person, per day on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets for VIP Pre Shop (EARLY Admission: 10 a.m. on Sat.) are $20. Tickets are available at the door (CASH only)—or SKIP THE LINE and buy tickets in advance (see orange button)!
There are ATM’s on site (bank transaction fees apply).
Who do I Pay for Merchandise?
Every retailer processes their own sales, so you must pay for your merchandise at each boutique. Le Garage Boutique Sale advertises cash only but many stores will accept credit cards….just ask them.
What is the entrance fee used for?
Door charges cover venue costs, advertising, insurance, staffing, and all the millions of little things that have to happen to make this event a reality. Remember, the stores are selling at or below cost, so Le Garage Boutique Sale keeps their participant fees low so they can pass those savings on to you!!!
Parking is available at the Palmer Parking Garage, adjacent to the facility with two entrances (from Barton Springs Road or Riverside Drive).
Cost: Parking is $8 for most events, with a “Special Event” parking rate of $10 when posted.

Are there change rooms?
Some stores set up a change room area but most do not. And because it’s final sale, unless you are comfortable “le nu”, dress accordingly. Many women wear biker shorts, bathing suits, modest lingerie. And voila! You’re prepared to score une grand affaire!!
Are strollers allowed?
Of course!! We love the little ones! Navigating is definitely easier after the first two hours of opening day so you might want to plan accordingly!
What is there to eat and drink?
Coffee, snacks, sandwiches, salads—and a full bar!
