There is a local classifieds paper for our town I usually advertise in. I also post it on various local facebook selling groups. Finally I put up signs near my house to get impulse buyers.

Just put signs out when we are ready for people to come..

No need to do more, get tons of people.

One time we advertised it and we just got flooded, it was too much to handle, people parking everywhere, blocking the street, it was nuts.

Problem is the police officers, if their are too many people they will shut you down..  As soon as the traffic you create, creates a road hazard, they will make you close it down.

No, I don't believe anyone uses them to find yard sales in my area.
