The Ultimate Tag-Sale Guide
Tips for Setting UpGive Items Some TLC
Make your items look as appealing as possible. “Use a hose to spray the dirt off outdoor kids’ toys,” says Callahan. Display two pieces of clothing together as an outfit, or arrange china as a charming place setting instead of leaving it stacked in a dusty box. Also, be sure to keep breakables away from the outer edges of the table.
Display a show-stopper at the end of the driveway or in clear view. “If you treat your sale like a store, these items are like your window displays,” explains Callahan. A colorful quilt, a great piece of furniture, or a striking piece of art will attract attention.
Group Similar Things Together
Some shoppers will be looking for a specific item, so don’t make them wade through all your merchandise. Clothes and accessories should have a section, as should electronics, tools, kitchenware, and so on.
Make It Personal
A little tag of information―“Made for walkin’: vintage cowgirl boots, straight outta Nashville”―will give an item more character. Suddenly your piece of so-called junk will have a lively history and thus be more attractive to a potential buyer.
