It is not easy to find parking at the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale.

Scoring a parking spot right on Greenwich Avenue during sidewalk sale days will feel like winning the lottery.

Fortunately, there are several parking lots behind the shops on Greenwich Avenue.

You can try the East Elm parking lot behind Saks between Lewis Street and East Elm street.

There is also another Amogerone parking lot behind Sephora between Amogerone Crossway and Lewis Street.

There are also parking lots off Lewis Street between Benedict Place and Greenwich Avenue and the BOE N parking lot near Restoration Hardware off Arch Street and Bolling Place.

If you can’t find parking at the parking lots, you can try to find street parking on the streets adjacent to Greenwich Avenue such as Mason Street, East Elm Street, Lewis Street, Amogerone Crossway and Putnam Avenue.

Pro Tips: Greenwich Sidewalk Sale

I just came back from the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale and here are my tips.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Wear comfortable shoes because you will be doing a lot of walking during the sidewalk sale. Trust me, Greenwich Avenue is a long avenue!

Plus, there is a high chance that the parking spot you get is on one of the side streets away from Greenwich Avenue so you may have to walk a few blocks just to get to the shops on Greenwich Avenue.

Expect Long Lines

The lines will be long at popular stores like Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer! You will have to wait in line just to try on clothes, then you will have to wait in line again just to pay!

I spent 1.5 hours at the Vineyard Vines. 30 minutes of that was waiting in line to pay! But the deals are great. It’s worth it!

Bring Water and Snacks

I suggest bringing a bottled water and a little cracker for snack. I got a little hungry and thirsty while I was standing in line (and I couldn’t just leave the line to go buy a drink because I don’t want to line up again!)

Fortunately, I had bottled water and a little cracker to keep me going!

Take the Day Off

Shopping the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale can take hours! I took 3 hours just shopping two stores- Lilly Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines!

If you plan to shop the entire avenue, then you need to take the day off. Don’t expect to go back to your office because shopping the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale is a whole day activity!

Leave the Kids at Home

It’s both hectic and fun to shop the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale. You will have your hands full digging through the sale bin and carrying all the stuff you want to buy.

Do yourself a favor and leave the kids at home!

It’s too much to have to watch your kids and shop! It’s worth it to hire a sitter for the Greenwich Sidewalk Sale!

Bring Your Teen

If you have a teen, bring him or her. Your teen will be helpful in standing in line for you while you continue browsing. It’s a major time saver to have another person stand in line for you.

Don’t Forget the Side Street

Stores located on the side street also participate in the sidewalk sale. Shop the side streets, you can find great deals!
