Garage Sale Questions

I am getting ready to have a garage sale this Friday and Saturday so posting will be sporadic. I do have some questions for you though. I have never tried to sell stockpile products at a garage sale before. Any advice? Any idea on what would be a good price? Has anyone had success selling these at a garage sale? Thanks in advance!!

I have sold them before, and I plan to do it again this year. A good rule of thumb is to price things at about 25% of retail, so I only sell things I got free or as MM usually. I took 80 products to my mom's sale last year - and they were gone within an hour!

My tip is, set up a table and have a clearly marked $1 section, $2 section and $3 section. This worked very well for me, I made about $70!! Also, have grocery bags available for your customers.

I put out a table for garage sale items almost every week. I price things at about 25% of the retail price (just as Sarah mentioned). And yes, they will be gone in an hour.

Thanks for the tips. I could not believe all the stuff I found once I started going through all my areas that I've put my stockpiled stuff :) I hope that stuff sells :) I figure I'll use that money to buy a CVS gift card for future shopping trips!!

Let us know how you do at the garage sale please.
I'm going to try to sell some stockpile this summer too & I've never done it before.

I'll let you know. Hopefully it will fly out the door :)
