My Mom was one before she started working a couple of years back. She tried not to rip off people much, but if she thought it was worth less she would ask for it.

I know her buying kids clothes for my son has saved me a TON.

Uh, you have stuff in a garage sale because you don't want it. If you don't take a quarter for it, you are stuck hauling the crap back into your house or down to the Salvation Army.

I'll take the quarter and be glad someone is paying me to haul off my trash.

I think they might just enjoy the bargaining part of it. Even if it is over a $0.05 item. Next time, try this:

(Customer picks up item marked for $0.50)
C: "How much is this"
You: "Fidy cent"
C: Would you take twenty-five cents?
Y: Would you give 75 cents?
C: You said it was 50.
Y: It is.
C: Then why do you want me to pay 75 cents?
Y: Because it's more?
C: Why would I want to pay you more for this?
Y: Why would you want to pay less?
C: Because I don't want to pay 50 cents for it.
Y: You can afford 25 cents, but not 50?
C: Of course I have 50 cents.
Y: Just not 75 cents? Someone here can probably loan you 25 cents if you leave a drivers license or something.
C: Yes, I have 75 cents.
Y: But you don't want to pay 75 cents?
C: It's 50 cents.
Y: OK, I'll take 50 cents.

(You won't make any money from the garage sale, but if you were pricing your items at 50 cents, you weren't going to be financing a new car with your earnings anyway)

One time are subdivision was having those when he lived in a palce a long time ago. We were not having one ourselves and for some reason we forgot to close the garage door that night. The next morning there were people randomly walking through our garage looking at stuff. My dad walked in there to get something and 6 people are just standing there...before he could say something a person asked how much something was...

heh.

Price it right, watch the junk fly outa your life.

Most people I know labor for far too many hours in preparation for a garage sale that won't make them much money, and will tie them up an entire day if not 2. Total waste of effort (except for the relatively few pricey items you'd like to sell).

Gather those few non 50cent items. Sell them at a sale or craigslist them. Then haul the rest away to goodwill or something, and go enjoy the rest of your Saturday. Let the other people sit all day to make 10bucks.

My wife and I used to hold and buy at a lot of garage sales. We'd do them with friends a bunch, and we'd always laugh at our friends who overpriced their stuff and ended up having to haul it all back to their house while we got rid of all of ours and made several hundred dollars. A dollar here and a dollar there adds up pretty quick.

As for bargaining: it's part of the garage sale culture. I used to get embarrassed at my wife's cheap haggling ways, but I figured out that it's just part of garage saling.
