3. Price your items. Nothing worse that feeling like the homeowner is feelin’ you out to see how much you’ll pay for an item.
If you have a ton of small items, throw them in a bin and mark the bin “each item $2.”
4. Be organized and clever. Untangle your jewelry and hang it on something. A vintage sprinkler, a paper towel holder…
5. Use an apron to carry your money. Nothing worse that leave the cash box sitting alone.
6. If you’re selling clothes, quilts, linens, etc… hang them up so people can see what they’re purchasing.
You can also sell clothing with a by-the-bag price. Like fill a bag for $5.
7. Stage things like you would in your own home.
8. Make mystery goodie bags (mostly with kids knick knack toys in them). I guarantee every kid that stops at your yard sale will be mesmerized and purchase at least one bag.
9. Give people ideas of what they can do with your crap.
Tear images out of magazines and put them on display to give your customers inspiration.
