The City of Hartsville must have a record of yard sales on file to differentiate personal sales from business sales. Personal sales are limited to four sales per year by one person or at one location before the city will require a business license.

Yard sales held in the Hartsville City Limits are required to have a permit from the City. The permit must be obtained seven days prior to the sale and is limited to three consecutive sale days. Only four permits per calendar year will be approved for each individual and/or location.
