Garage Sale tips

I'm doing a garage sale this weekend to get some xtra money for my "junk". When you go to sale's what do you look for?

What stands out, draws your attention, or makes you confirm the choice on that $30 item?

Well, the funny thing is, you are totally wrong on both points.

1. We go to a lot of effort to make large clear signs with arrows and put them on 12 different street corners in our town. They are large, white signs with clear black lettering. They are very simple. They just say Garage Sale and the address with an arrow. We have many people tell us they really like our signs or they would have never known about our sales except for our signs. We have swarms of people every time we open our doors. Time and effort devoted to signs is a must.

2. Clothes...... specifically womens clothes, especially women's shoes are a BIG deal. Put them on a clothing rack out front where the women can see them. Make sure they are clean and organized and easy to hunt through. My wife is making a killing on her clothes. And the women shriek with glee when they see a table full of quality, clean, stylish shoes! My wife doesn't mess around. She puts pretty good prices on her clothes, especially the name brand stuff. She may go down a little, but usually she demands a good price. She's got good stuff and knows what it's worth. But, it is true that baby clothes are a dime a dozen at garage sales. And men don't really shop for clothes at garage sales.

We just made $800 this weekend. The last time we had a 2 day garage sale, we made $1000. If you take it seriously and put in the time and effort, you can get rid of your "gently used" or "pre-loved" junk for good money.

I ended up making a few hundred from that sale. Mainly off the video games though. Nobody wanted my old WWF magazines, haha.

This is absolutely true in some cases and on certain items.

I have a garage sale to get rid of shit I don't want, the money's just a bonus. If you have a good local advertising web site to advertise the good stuff early, do it. Price most of your stuff to move so you don't need to have another garage sale later. It's fine to overprice a few things but if I go to a place and see overpriced crap, I usually just turn around and leave. I guess that's how I see it. My time is worth more to me than messing around with haggling too much. If you move most of your junk and make the same you would have and still have crap at your place to deal with, is it really worth doing a second sale, etc. To me it isn't, to some people it might be. I'd rather spend my weekend fishing.

Hire a bunch of actors to come in and be all excited about your stuff, and it'll make people buy faster.

That shit probably does work. Just ask some family and friends to "look busy" when you see cars driving by.

Just push all of your old shit out of your garage and into your yard and catch it on fire. Make a bonfire. Sell marshmallows on a stick, s'mores, hot dogs, etc. And bottled water/cheap soda for a dollar a piece. Then bury the burnt out crap in your back yard the next day. Done.


P.S. It's not my fault if this doesn't work. I took an Ambien about half an hour ago but I'm pretty sure I'm still awake. Your mileage may vary.

Yup. Never, ever again. I won't lose $400 a day and then give up my day off so you can make a couple bucks. It's not worth the headache at all.

Be prepared to hear a lot of Mexican.

Be prepared to have a lot of your crap stolen.

Don't let the Mexican-speaking woman let her kid use your bathroom.
