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. VIP Pre-Shop Shoppers begin lining up an 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 100+ 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: 9:30 a.m. on Sat.) are $25. Tickets are available at the door — or SKIP THE LINE and buy tickets in advance (see orange button)!
There are 3 ATM’s on site (bank transaction fees apply)-- one is in the Palmer lobby, two are inside the hall : at the front near concessions and at the back of the hall near the bar.
Who do I Pay for Merchandise?
Every retailer processes their own sales, so you will pay for your merchandise in each booth.
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!!!
Is there Parking available?
A four-story parking garage is available right next to the venue (to the east). It has two entrances, one on Riverside Dr. and another on Barton Springs Rd. Pro Tip: If there is any traffic, enter on Riverside. You can also carpool with friends -- or use Uber/Lyft.
Cost: Parking is $10 for most events.

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?
We discourage strollers as it is VERY difficult to navigate the aisles and booths with a stroller. If you do need to bring one, you may want to come later in the day when it is typically less crowded.
What is there to eat and drink?
Coffee, snacks, sandwiches, salads—and a full bar!
