Yard-Sale-Template-2-300x225A continuation from SSC’s spring yard sale tips…

1) Best Items to Sell in The Spring:

  • Sports Equipment
  • Camping Gear
  • Gardening Tools
  • Children’s Clothing
  • Patio Furniture

2) Start Early: Don’t wait until the last minute to gather everything up. Use this handy checklist to stay organized3) Enlist some help from your family and friends. The real bargain hunters show up early so make sure you have some man power.

4) The main thing to remember is not to overprice. Although it’s nice to make money, clearing out that excess clutter should be your ultimate goal. A good rule of thumb is to sell things for one-half to one-third their original price.

5) Create Ambiance. Just because you’re setting up shop in your front yard doesn’t mean it can’t have the vibe of a classy boutique. Play some nice background music so shoppers aren’t perusing in silence. If your kid is really into it, he could even open a lemonade stand and sell packaged snacks or your favorite homemade cookies to make some extra cash. Make sure to have a garbage can nearby to keep things tidy.
