Everyone mark their calendars early for our next community garage sale. We will also be sending out announcements when the date comes closer so everyone can prepare and get ready to participate.
We have been asked from our surrounding communities this week, if we would like to join them in having a joint garage sale with them once again. Last year’s event was a successful one. The event will be advertised on Craig’s List, and we are going to be doing marketing clustering and mapping.
Here is the information, to get prepared:
Date: Saturday, September 9th and Sunday, September 10th
Time: 9 am – 4 pm (if you would like, you may start at an earlier time)
**Please feel free to post signs directing them to your street of Garage sales. Please have your signs removed by end of day on Sunday, September 10th. (Thank you!) Also, please reach out to your neighbors to have them participate for this fun event.
Here are some tips to have a successful garage sale:
1. Collect the clutter around your home.
2. Have a plan (A successful garage sale does not happen without organization. At least a week before the sale go through your home from top to bottom and clear out clutter. At least 2-3 days before the sale, take an afternoon to price everything and organize it. And then the day before getting the cash on hand to manage your cash drawer (for example: a roll of pennies, roll of nickels, roll of dimes, roll of quarters, 20 dollars in dollars and 20 dollars in fives).
Do not wait until the last minute to pull off a garage sale 🙂
3. Clearly mark your prices.
4. Price things to sell.
5. Mark things down as the time goes and closing time approaches.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and thank you for your support (….the more homes that participate creates a successful day for everyone)
