I’m having my very first on-my-own yard sale this weekend, hoping to get rid of some of our stuff before our upcoming move. (If you’re in the area, stop on by!)
I asked for tips on our Facebook page and am loving the helpful responses. Here are just a few of them:
- “Price as much as you can beforehand. It’s a big turnoff for customers if there are no prices on items. And price a little above what you’ll accept, because most people like to bargain.”
- “Display is the key to a successful yard sale . . . make things easy for people to see. If you have clothes try to hang them up. Organize like items together. Put things at different levels . . . have some things on a blanket on the ground, others on a table.”
- “If you have any bright colorful kids stuff put it right out by the street where it can clearly be seen. Also advertise well…post in newspaper, craigslist, & GOOD signage (put up several days ahead).”
And many more helpful tips! Head on over to the Facebook page to get in on the discussion or leave a comment below!
