A Sucessful Yard Sale

Hints for a successful yard sale

Plan at least 2 weeks in advance so you can schedule advertising.

Organize everything that you will be selling. Keep like items together from the beginning.

Prepare signs to be put up the night before the sale. Locate areas where signs can effectively (and legally) be placed.

Put prices on everything before the sale. It will save you a lot of time answering questions and buyers will feel more comfortable. But, be prepared to negotiate!

Have as many tables available as possible to place items for sale on.

Have $25 or $30 in small bills and coins for change.

The day of the sale get up early and prepare. Your first customers will probably be early!
