Can I set up a food stand?

Yes, you may set up a food stand or hold a bake sale.    

  • Midwestern cooks have a reputation for having “great cooks”,  and travelers are looking for “the very best” food they have ever tasted.
  • You may sell home baked items, home canned, home grown or commercially prepared food items.
  • However, a word of warning:   It is your responsibility to learn about and abide by the Nebraska Food Laws. (see link below)
  • Mobile food stands must have a Restaurant or Food Service license and a Nebraska Sales Tax license, as they are considered Commercial Food Services.
  • Remember, you will realize better sales with a Junk Jaunt® Vendor Registration.   At least 15,000 Junk Jaunters will read the Shopper Guide listings..

ALL prepared food or fresh produce sales are subject to state and local health laws, as published by:

Must I charge sales tax on my sale items?

As the JUNK JAUNT® Motto states, “You are limited only by your imagination and the law.”

The sales tax laws, according to the Department of Revenue representatives, say:

“If you have more than 2 garage sales per year you are considered a business, and required by Nebraska law, to charge and submit sales tax, both Nebraska sales tax and city sales tax, where applicable.”       Not all towns have a city sales tax, so check it out.

The Nebraska’s  JUNK JAUNT®  General Committee,  does not require proof of a Sales Tax License or Food License, however, we have no control over spot-checks by the Department of Revenue or the Department of Agriculture.    If in doubt, we suggest that you obtain the proper licenses.   It is always better to be safe than sorry!!!!

What and Who is a JUNK JAUNT® Vendor?

ONLY  Registered Vendors ARE WELCOME.   

A VENDOR is anyone who sells …. A garage sale, food, merchandise, services, etc.

AREA VENDOR:   Anyone who legally resides within one of the Junk Jaunt® counties.   The nine (9)   counties that make up the Junk Jaunt® area are:  Blaine, Loup, Garfield, Wheeler, Greeley, Valley, Custer, Sherman,  Howard plus the portion of Hall County that lies north of Interstate 80 and the portion of Buffalo County where the Hwy 2 town of Ravenna, NE is located.

OUT–of-AREA VENDOR:  If you resides anywhere else, you are an “Out of Area” Vendor. 

All Vendors are expected to comply with Nebraska Tax & Food Laws (if applicable). 

Am I limited to what I can Sell?

Our motto is: “You are limited only by your imagination and the law.” However, we ask that your merchandise be in good taste and not the kind that must be hidden when children or the preacher is present.
