• Be legal. First of all, check the laws where you live to make sure you don’t have to acquire a permit to host a sale. It’s all fun and games until someone gets fined.
• Set sale hours. Set definite hours for your sale and stick to them. If you’re planning a Saturday sale, consider starting at 9AM and ending at 4PM.
• Be prepared for early birds. There are folks who live for garage sales who will arrive at yours an hour before it starts. You can specify “no early birds” in your ad but that may not stop them. Plan to have everything together an hour before your start time, just in case. Also, don’t be surprised if resellers arrive early and clean out all the good stuff.
• Price everything. Or, if you don’t want to take the time to tag each item, group things by price and create larger signs.
Sometimes your junk is another persons treasure.
