How to Organize and Run a Yard/Garage Sale
Getting Everything You Need
Find some tables, blankets, or empty boxes.With the tables you can set them in your driveway and put your items on them. Boxes can contain free items or items all costing the same. Blankets can be used to put clothes/shoes on them.
Get price labels or tape to write on.With pricing labels you don't have to write all the prices down. If you can't find any just buy a large roll of duct tape or white/blue tape and write prices on it with a marker.
Get a sign That says you have a yard sale and an arrow pointing down the direction it's in.If you can't find any you can make your own with cardboard, a stick, and duct tape.
- Use duct tape to tape stick to the back
- Make letters and arrow with duct tape, or find markers.
Buy something to safely lock your money away in.A jewelry box with a lock, a cash box, or anything else can work if you don't have the money to buy anything.
Have a few chairs around to sit on.If you have somewhere to sit down you won't get as tired.
The Day To Be Held
Pick a day and time that works well.
- day with no rain!
- a weekend
- from morning to afternoon (more time to let people buy your stuff)
- not too hot, not too cold. (if it's hot sell drinks also.... more money)
Put the date and time on your sign.So people can know in advance.
Letting People Know
Use Facebook.Post a status about it. Say when it is and the address,and ask your friends to tell their friends as well.
Put your sign up at an intersection near your neighborhood.If you do this make sure it has your address on it and the date and time!
Decide all what you're selling.
Inspect the items.If they're in good condition and cost a lot make the price higher. If they're in bad condition make the price low or free
Put up the tables in your driveway so that people have a space to walk and look at everything.The more space the better.
Put some large blankets in the front yard.If you have them near the tables people won't have space to look.
Make a place for you to put your money holder and chair for yourself.
- a small fold up table and chair will work
Put the boxes on the ground beside the tables and/or blankets.Label how much the items inside it costs by using a marker to write on the box. Make sure people can see them.
Put the items on the tables, blankets, and in the boxes.
- books go with books, shoes go with shoes. Put everything that is the same close to each other so it's easier to find others
- double check everything is priced
Running The Yard Sale
Make sure no one is stealing anything.It's against the law, and you lose money.
Be kind to the people buying things.If they have a question then answer it. If they're being rude or disruptive then ask them to leave nicely.
Have a calculator with you if you aren't good with change.You'll need it if you're bad at math; some people will get mad if they're short of change or will try to make you think you didn't give them the right amount when you did.
If someone looks like they're having trouble ask them if they need help.Being kind may help you with sales.
Gather the unsold items in empty boxes.You can hold another yard sale or donate them. Put them in your garage (another yard sale) or car (donation).
Put up the tables and chairs.
Fold up your blankets.
Get rid of the boxes.If they're recyclable then recycle them, please.
Get your money and count it.
QuestionHow do I figure how to price items?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAsk yourself what you would pay for it at someone else's sale and add a few dollars to it, so you can drop the price a bit if people want to haggle.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I don't live in a big neighborhood?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can always ask a friend/relative who lives in a bigger neighborhood if you can run it there.Thanks!
QuestionShould I go through all of my stuff the day before the sale?Community AnswerThat seems like a stressful idea, leaving it to the last minute. Start collecting stuff for the sale days or even weeks ahead. The day before the sale, sort and price everything, and decide how you are going to display it all.Thanks!
QuestionHow much would I sell shower curtains sets for?Community AnswerThat is up to you to decide. It depends on their quality, how clean they are, how much they have been used.Thanks!
QuestionNew towel sets. How much should I ask?Community AnswerThat is up to you to decide; it depends on how much you paid for them. The goal of a yard sale is to get rid of stuff, so if you have priced them too high, you should let your customers talk you down to a price they are willing to pay.Thanks!
