Rummage sale tips???
Ok, the summer is going to be over in a few weeks and then all those rummagers on the prowl will be without a good sale to hit. I've decided to set up a rummage sale on "off season" because I won't have a lot of competition then. My family members and I are going to tag our items with our initials, that way I can keep a tally during payment time of who gets what monies from the sales. I'm going to have as many surfaces as possible out there, tables, cabinets, sawhorses with boards set up across them. I really didn't want to load junk all over the lawn unless I absolutely had to. I'm going to display my own hand crafted wares also, my jewelry, my crafts, my polymer fairys, and so will hubby with his wooden crafts. Those items are not negotiable but everything else is. I'm going to play music.... nice CHILL music to invite a soothing shopping atmosphere. The youngster is going to be serving cups of lemonade for a quarter. Everything will be clearly marked but of course I'll haggle because if I don't sell this stuff it's going to Salvation Army or one of the homeless shelters. I'll post an ad in Craigslist. I'll post an ad in our rinkydinky town paper. I'll post colorful signs on street corners. What tips or tricks to you have for sales?? What has worked for you? This one's going to be a medium sized one, full of stuff. I've already started tagging items. Domestic Divas, what words of advice do you have for me?
