Yard Sales: Sell (and shop) with themes
One of the great things about being a yard sale shopper is that you can time your purchases with the season or an event that’s coming up in your life.
If you’re planning a flamingo-themed birthday party, for example, you can go yard-sale shopping and “think pink” as you browse. That’s when you’re snatching up everything flamingo-friendly that you come across.
On the flip side, yard sale hosts should always organize their wares in such a way that your shoppers can immediately detect a theme. If you’re selling your collection of Rolling Stones merchandise, put it all together and list it in your classified advertising. If you’ve got a lot of Corvette items, then make it known in your ad and display them on the same table.
Sellers should consider the same advice when you know a major holiday is approaching. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are on their way soon enough, so weed through your decorations now and put them in your fall yard sale today.
