Weekly Garage Sale Tip - October 27, 2009

When creating your garage sale environment, try and mimic what most retail stores do. This includes itemzing things together by “departments” and also by putting on soft rock music. It’s a lot easier to walk into a garage sale and talk about items with a friend when there is background noise and everyone can’t hear what you’re saying.

Weekly Garage Sale Tip - October 13, 2009

When selling books at your garage sales, make sure the titles are visible to buyers rather than just piling the books in large boxes. If you are selling a bookshelf, leave a few out on this shelf.  Don’t put too many books on the shelf in case you sell it so you won’t have to find a place for too many books.  You can also lay the books out on a table or put them in a box with all of the spines showing in the same direction making them easy to read.
