Garage Sale Tips

  • a group sale will have more stuff than a 1 family sale, bringing in more shoppers
  • price items according to how you feel...do you want to get rid of it or do you want to make money
  • make signs with fat lettering...what looks big to you will look small to someone driving by
  • put the nice stuff closer to the road, and the "man" stuff so they are more likely to stop
  • price something anywhere from 10-25% of what you paid depending on its condition
  • DON'T let strangers into your house to try things on
  • you add up the prices of what people are buying...you'd be surprised how many people would like to cheat
  • be prepared for the question, "how much for the whole box" by deciding on amount you would take beforehand
