  1. Great tips, Lora! I’ve walked away from more than one sale that didn’t have price tags! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

      You’re definitely not alone, Cecilia!

  2. Loved your ideas. When I was foolish enough to do a yard sale, I used whole sheets of neon pink and green poster paper and painted the signs with 1″ foam brushes. Got their attention! I, too, hate unpriced stuff. I’ll usually ask the prices for a couple of things and if those are reasonable, I usually assume everything is reasonable–works for me!

    Also, keep the bulk of your money in a pocket so thieves aren’t tempted to clean out your cash box, good jewelry, etc. Those people are out there; they often work in pairs; one to distract, the other to steal.

    If kids aren’t selling their own stuff, let them have a lemonade, water, soda stand; yard saling is thirsty work!

      Thanks for more tips, Kathy!

  3. Thanks for the reminders! I need to have a garage sale, but it probably won’t be until the fall at this point.
