    Good Luck Danelle!!!
    I wish that I lived closer to you, as I have a ton of things that I need to sell! I have been saving my items in my large Garage, and I need the space so that I can work out there on some of my Furniture projects which are currently residing out there…..lol.
    The last Garage Sale which I had, I made well over $1000.00!!!! I sold small items, some clothes, a bunch of Antiques, and just general “things”
    If you really wish to move something, price it cheap….But leave room to haggle, this is what I do!!! if you are not sure about an item, if it is an Antique, it can be worth much more than what you think the value is. I am Excellent at pricing, so if you have any questions Please contact me with Photos. I will be very glad to help you.
    If you do not have enough tables for all of your items, you can use old sheets, ect. It helps to price everything, however some people change tags on items I have found. It pays to write a small description on items, Example:Antique Sewing Basket $70.00 or Offer. if you are selling say mixed glassware, or such you can put all of the items in a box and mark it Each item of Glassware: fifty cents, ect. Clothes sell better if they are hung up….People seem more eager to browse thought them that way.
    Please make sure that you have at least Fifty one dollar Bills and at least Thirty dollars in change to start with, as the Early Birds are normally Flea Market Dealers, and since it is so early they do not have change for smaller purchases. If you have any newspaper and plastic store bags that is a huge help, also.
    I use a legal pad and write down everything with a price that sells and I keep a Calculator and money box with me at all times.
    i have never sold food at one of my Sales, but I have heard about people who do. They set up a grill and make inexpensive burgers/hotdogs and sell them with a drink. A drink stand is a good way to get small children involved, also.
    I hope that these tips help you…..If you have any Antiques/Uniques Please contact me. I will be Thrilled to help you with the prices!!! :-D
