It was a busy weekend for garage sales in Baytown, as people tried to make sales before a new rule requiring garage sale permits.That new ordinance takes effect today. Baytown residents are now required to purchase a $5 permit for any future garage sales. They're also limited to only two garage sales per year.

The new garage sale rule also forces people to put down a $25 deposit. They'll get it back once they take down all their garage sale signs.
