Tips for sellers

  • Early birds and professional bargain hunters may arrive at your home in advance of our 9 a.m. starting time. You are in no way obligated to comply with demands for a preview. You will likely have many buyers visit your home before the day is over, so don’t fret the threat of a lost sale.
  • Be prepared with adequate change for shoppers. If personal checks make you uncomfortable, have directions to the nearest ATM handy.
  • Keep your money in a fanny pack or a zipper pocket. As you collect much cash, stash your excess in a safe place.
  • Keep your pets confined and your children nearby
  • Do not invite strangers into your home to view your sale items or for any other reason.
  • Mark prices on your sale items in advance.
  • Keep most valuable items close at hand. A garage sale is not the best venue for selling heirlooms. Garage sale pricing should start at around or below one-third of the items when they were new.
  • Place any giveaways away from sale items, marking them with a “FREE” sign.
  • Have clean bags, newspaper and boxes available for items you sell.
  • Be honest about the condition of your sale items.
  • If you cannot participate due to illness or emergency, post a “Sale Canceled” sign.
  • Relax and enjoy the day. Good luck on a profitable sale!
  • If you put up signs directing buyers to your location, PLEASE remove them at the end of the day.
