~~ Garage Sales ~~

~~ Garage Sales ~~

Postby PennyMoney » Fri Jul 23, 2010 10:07 pm

Garage sales/yard sales/rummage sales are the ultimate Renew-Reuse-Recycle! Make a few dollars, spend a few dollars. And the ability to park your car in the garage again, whoopee! A few tips:

FOR SELLERS:
Make sure your signs are readable and remove them immediately after your sale. Include directions in your craigslist ad.
Put prices on your merchandise so shoppers don't have to ask about every little thing.
Expect reasonable offers, so price accordingly.
Have fun! :D

FOR BUYERS:
Drive slowly and park carefully.
Watch for kids and pedestrians.
Don't leave your engine running.
Respect the neighbors.
Bring small bills and change. (no $20 bills for a 25 cent item!) ;)
Have fun!

I enjoy going to garage sales. I guess I'm a member of HOGS.

Thank you PTownLove!

I'm bringing this subject back up because it's that time of year.
Folks, please be careful driving and parking -- and watch out for kids!

I was out walking last Saturday and saw a near-collision from a driver who was not paying attention to a car that had slowed up in front of him.

Just saw on the news that National Garage Sale Day is Sunday, August 12.

I think around here the more popular day for yard sales/garage sales is Saturdays. Sundays seem pretty quiet.

The article said that the average price for an item is 85 cents! What a deal ;)

Garage sales are great, we try to hit them weekly. Problem is the leftover signs, I am constantly picking up and removing signage from the hood. Please be responsible after the long and hopefully profitable day and take that final step!! :x

People have been very good about removing their signs promptly after their sales. I've noticed that there are rarely any "leftover" signs!
