Community yard sales ?????
« on: February 25, 2012, 02:59:48 AM »
Has anyone tried this?

We have a local town famous for antique shopping. Advertising a yard / side walk sale. thinking we could take some of our higher end stuff and antiques we have.

It is on the 3rd First of the month. thinking of trying that on Sat. then the Flea on Sunday.

any thoughts or experience appreciated.  got go off to the Flea.

i love shopping at community sales, i dont know what i would bring to one to sell though.
if your bringing high end stuff ,especially larger items be sure to bring plenty of business cards there will bee a lot of people that just see the sale and wont be in shape to buy/transport larger or more expensive items if they show up on a whim

Finally got more info will have to call on Monday.

No charge to set up for the community of the that town. Town being it has a post office LOL

So will call and see if we can sell there. We are in about the same size town.  ;D

If not will hit the Flea on Saturday.

If they have it every month it may not be a "big" affair.  In my county they have a "county yard sale" at the fair grounds once or twice a year.  Normally that draws a large crowd since it's pretty big and is a rare event.

Large chruch yard sales and the like do ok as they draw the yard sale crowd first.  When you can hit 3-5 family yard sales in one location beats hitting 3-5 in seperate locations.

With gas prices going up even higher I suspect many of the group yardsales will get hit first/hardest by buyers in the future.
