Tips for a successful Garage Sale

March 03, 2013

Today I had my first ever Garage sale, although I've been selling online for months now this is actually
the first time i decided to hold a garage sale.  I am very hesitant at first because i know it would be
a lot of work, knowing i have to arrange this and that but we the help of my family i was able
to deliver it all. 

I could not really say that i had the best and successful garage sale. My sales wasn't that high at all (well except for my 7 yrs old niece who made a lot of money selling her pre-loved clothes too lol)  after all it was my first time to hold one and i admit that i wasn't able to plan it ahead but nevertheless I'm still happy that i was able to make it.

Here are 5 things i learned from my garage sale today:

1. Plan ahead 
2. Try to have a joint garage sale - the more the merrier
3. Advertise - though online, posters, flyers etc.
4. Everyone loves a freebie - yeah because i do too =) so try giving your customers
something they can bring home for free. =)
5. Allow Haggling

What do you think? Any advice for a successful garage sale?
I'll be planning another garage sale soon so please share your thoughts =)
