If you’re looking to get rid of the clutter in your home and make some extra money, you can kill two birds with one stone by having a yard sale! Our master-planned community is sharing a few tips to having a yard sale that’s impossible to resist.
Have at Least 100 Items
Try to offer something for everyone by displaying at least 100 items at your yard sale. If you don’t have a wide variety of items, many people will just drive right on by.
Display More Expensive Items on Tables with Tablecloths
You’ll want to let people know which items have a greater value by displaying them properly. Adding a tablecloth to the table that has the more expensive items will draw people’s attention and give the illusion that they are worth more. They’ll also be more likely to pay the asking price when the items are neatly displayed.
Create Individual Price Tags for Everything
Avoid the constant questions of price and create price tags for each item. This may be a lot of work at first, but it will be well worth it. An easy way to do this is to adopt a colored sticker system. Place a colored sticker on each item and have a sign that correlates the sticker’s color to a specific price.
Make Outstanding Signs
If you have appealing signs, more people are likely to show up. This is also the fun part where the kids can get involved! Delegate this task to the children so they can feel a part of the process while taking something off of your plate.
