Garage sale season is underway, and I’m one of the many people who has decluttered a winter house full of stuff to sell at a yard sale. Yes, this weekend I’ll be trying my luck (hoping for sun, not rain) at selling all the clutter.
Lucky for me, my friend Barb from The Forever Neighbor will be joining me to sell some of her garage sale clutter as well. There’s nothing like making a day of it with a good friend!
Lucky for me again… one of the best ways to get more people to come to your garage sale is to advertise that your yard sale is a multi-family venture. Potential shoppers will realize that 2 families have more junk to sell than one!
Here in Fairbanks, Alaska, the fashionable garage sale trend is to have an early morning Friday sale, and then a day-long sale on Saturday. Our garage sale will be from 8am to noon on Friday, and we’re sure to have tons of early birds. Wouldn’t it be nice to sell everything Friday morning and have all day Saturday for fun and games with the family?! If not, we’ll be peddling our goodies Saturday from 8am to 3pm too.
With three bloggers, lots of blogs, twitter, and wi-fi, I don’t think we’ll be bored if the garage sale crowds don’t show up. I’ll have to take some pictures to post, and might even have time to share my tips for having the best (most profitable) garage sale. Wish us luck!
