Never Miss Another Garage Sale!
A long day and our first garage sale

After preparing all of last week, our 1st garage sale is finally over! As we don't actually have a garage, we had to have everything ready last night in the hall, & put it all out this morning. Early customers (only 30 mins early thankfully) meant it took a while to finally get everything out on display. We were well organised with similar things set up in boxes, (eg books, CDs) apart from the odds & ends to just lay out on tables. It was busy for the first hour or so, then quieter on & off for much of the rest of the day. We used colour coded price stickers on most items, and put up a large sign (easily seen) indicating which colour sticker stood for which price. People thought that was a good idea. We didn't make all that much money, but then we only had 1 or 2 big ticket items.

Big Tip

Our car was parked across the street, with a large fluoro yellow cardboard sign tucked under the back windscreen wiper, advertising the garage sale (a fairly busy street). We had a large red arrow pointing to our place. Just large red & black letters done in a chunky texta. We taped it down, due to the breeze. It was hard to miss! This supplemented our flyers on light poles.
