With looming, I spent the weekend helping my dad prepare to participate. I know you're jealous.
Now, for a little background, I think my family maybe held two garage sales in my entire life. So we lack some major experience in this area. (However, my uncle was notorious on 10th Avenue for his epic garage sales back in the day.) And while you would think it would be easy enough to pull off, after 20 hours spent, the next five days will require just as much, if not more, work.
And it may kill me. OK. That's a little dramatic. But, really. I need help: Office and school supplies, copper plumbing pipes and fittings, tools unlimited, books, and, of course, an original Atari game system—and that's just the tip of the iceberg. (If anyone is or knows a plumber, we got it all!) I guess this could really be called a "Man Sale."
So this is where I ask for your friendly tips on how to pull of a successful, or semi-successful, garage sale. How do I price items? What things are good sellers? What should I just toss in the garbage to save a price sticker?
Please give me your advice in the comments section below. Also, if you are participating in the garage sale this weekend, POST A PHOTO of the wackiest or coolest item you are attempting to sell.
Thanks in advance for your insight!
