If you’re going to have a garage sale in Little Falls, you want it to be as successful as possible. After all, it can take time to put a sale together. There are some tips to follow to make it easier for you to hold the sale and maximize the results.
Talk to Neighbors
Talk to your neighbors about the garage sale to see if they are interested in holding one at the same time. Having a neighborhood-wide sale can bring in larger groups of people, increasing your likelihood of selling more of your stuff.
Hang signs throughout your area to tell people when and where the garage sale is. This will make it easier for people to find you on the day of the sale.
Not everyone relies on signage. Market your garage sale online using Craigslist as well as local online forums. This will make it possible for people to plan in advance to attend your garage sale. Be sure to mention some of the items you are selling.
Price to Sell
Price the items to sell. Remember that you are not going to be able to get full price for anything. The average is about one third to one quarter of retail price. You may also want to allow people to “make an offer” on items.
Donate What’s Left
Everything at the garage sale are things you don’t want, so don’t bring it back in the house. Donate whatever is left so you can get the tax deduction and be free of that stuff.
