Garage Sell Prices For New Clothing

Are clothes a successful sell at garage sales??

Actually I was surprised to find they do well....I had a bunch of clothes I was going to donate to the Salvation Army in a side box and accidently put them out for my yard sale ..I think I ended up selling most of them ....but I sold them very cheap and didn;t make a thing out of the sizes etc...so the next year I put out more and hung them up and had them nice and clean and I sold lots of them again....I had so many I sold them $1.00 a piece or 6 for $5.oo if they were just so so condition and nothing super special ...The good condition sweaters and such I sold for about 2 or $3 each....Good luck....If you think you would make more with tax deductions by donating them instead think about that too.....

How to price items in garage sale?

Last year I had a very successful yard sale. You are best off pricing things a bit higher than the price you want, because people will always ask you for a better price. Here are some things I did:

With clothing, I had luck with pricing things in pairs, for example I priced women's jackets at $15 a piece, or two for $25. I did the same with women's tops; $7 each or 2 for $10. When you do that, they see that they are already getting a "deal". Most of them flew out the door. But they were nice tops, fairly new and in excellent condition.

With things like household, small kitchen items, it helps to put them all together and have a set price, say coffee mugs for $1 each. I had a "handbag" table at a set price of $15 on all of them. People went crazy over them.

As for your TV, it will help if you can keep it plugged in to show it's in good working condition. Put a big sign on it because people may walk by and not know it's for sale. Same with the computer monitor. As for prices, even if it's in great working condition, if it's not a flatscreen, you'll have to go low on price. Most people now want a flatscreen, so basically you're paying them to haul off your old "fossil" TV. You should have the wedding dress in a see-through plastic bag, and a place set up for women to try it on; most wedding dresses you can price between $100-$250, depending on the dress, how much embellishment it has, if it's excellent condition with no stains. Again, if people are interested they will bargain with you on those.

It also might help for you to go to another yard sale, or two before you have your own, that way you can see what others are charging for what. Good luck!!

Garage sale pricing?

The problem with garage sales is that people expect rock-bottom pricing. Expect them to haggle. Some will see the value of your new items and will be willing ot pay. I'd say make them half price on day one of your sale and 1/4 the price on the second. No matter what you do, don't bargain with people on the first day. They will approach you right away as the sale starts asking for bargains. Tell them, everything is half price after such-and-such time on the second day.

Another thing to consider is to sell the stuff in ebay. If it's got tags and is in new/like-new condition, people are willing to pay more than if they go to a garage sale. I'm always shocked at what second-hand brand-name stuff sells for on ebay--more than I ever pay a garage sales.

Good Luck!
