Today is a big subdivision garage sale. I received notification of it too late to participate and I haven’t been out looking at what was on offer.
I’ve never been a big garage sale shopper. For one thing, most sales start much earlier than I want to get up on a Saturday. For example, the participants in the sale today had to have their stuff out by 7 a.m. Yikes!
But as I thought about the sale, I began to wonder what I could put out IF I wanted to participate. The only thing I could think of was books. I’m a voracious reader. I have tons of books. Some I’ve had for many years. I occasionally go back and re-read favorite authors. But I’m being buried under all these books. I do sometimes donate some to a charity when it’s collecting items.
So if I wanted to participate in the next subdivision garage sale, do you think I’d have any customers if I stacked up a batch of books on a table in the driveway? Would I need to organize them by category? I also have lots of magazines I could add for variety on the table. What kind of pricing should I set?
