Annual Seven Coves Garage Sale

Annual Seven Coves Garage Sale

If you’re like most people, you probably have items in the attic, garage, closets and off-site storage that you don’t need, use and maybe even forgot that you had. Garage sales allow you to make space in your home while making money.  Below are some helpful tips to get you ready for the annual Seven Coves garage sale on April 26th!  

  • Create an inventory sheet of what you’re selling and their prices, in case the tag is missing.
  • Price it right.  Although you want to price your items slightly higher to account for haggling, don’t price them so high that you can’t sell them. Remember, shoppers expect bargains.
  • Get your items ready to sale. Clean your sale items, and make sure that they’re in good shape. If you’re selling electronics, make sure they’re in good working order, and have the cords attached.
  • Set up an hour or two early on the morning of the sale. Experienced shoppers will show up at the posted time so that they can score the best deals. So if you plan to open your sale at 7 a.m. then start setting up around 5 or 6 a.m.
  • Greet your customers and ask if you can help them find something.
  • Encourage them to buy more by offering them a plastic or paper grocery bag to carry their items.
  • Tidy up as the day goes on so that shoppers can see what you’re offering.
  • Negotiate for the sale. Shoppers love to haggle, so be open to negotiation.
  • Bundle items that go together to give shoppers the impression of a better deal (e.g., 6 glasses for $5).
  • Keep your cash on you in a fanny pack or a sales apron.
  •  Don’t let people into your house. Instead, direct them to the nearest gas station if they have to use the restroom.
  • Always be aware of who’s there, especially if you have bigger ticket items for sale.
  • Always have an adult present if your children are helping you.
