Get Ready for National Garage Sale Day on August 14th!
6 Best Tips to Have a Successful Sale
Bargain hunters, rejoice! Get ready for National Garage Sale Day on August 14th! The event is held on the second Saturday of August each year.
It first took place in 2001 when C. Daniel Rhodes of Alabama observed his neighbors having garage sales on different dates. He thought it would be a great idea to coordinate the sales and have them all at the same time. The idea took root and so National Garage Sale Day became an annual event.
Whether you’re buying or selling, you can take part in the fun of National Garage Sale Day.
If you’re staging your own sale, Breast Cancer Car Donations offers these six tips to have a successful sale:
1. Sort your items.
Organize your items by category so your buyers won’t have problems looking for what they need. You can make it easier for them by using signs for toys, pre-loved clothing, garden tools, and other household items.
2. Keep prices reasonable.
Make sure to price your items reasonably because there will be plenty of competition on National Garage Sale Day. Do not ask for too much or too little and assess your items based on their condition.
3. Be willing to negotiate.
Leave room for negotiation, especially for items that you need to get rid of. It won’t be a successful sale if you return your items to your garage at the end of the day.
4. Make sure your items are presentable.
Wash and dry used clothing. Wipe down the dirt on decorative items. Check whether toys and other devices are functioning. Do not sell defective items just to get rid of them, unless you clearly indicate it on your sale. You still have your credibility as a seller to think about.
5. Prepare small bills.
Get ready with plenty of change so you don’t spend half the day breaking big bills.
6. Advertise your sale.
Before your garage sale, you may want to advertise the event on social media. You can even include snaps of items that will be up for grabs. This will create anticipation for your customers.
