Is it too early to plan for a good yard sale?

December 16th, 2017 at 11:59 am

So...for those of you who don't remember, I had a yard sale this past August. No signs or posters, just threw caution to the wind. Total sales....$2.00.

This winter already I have accumulated some very expensive tools from the estate of a deceased family friend. Getting them out of the families hair was actually the best thing I could have done. That said, I am loaded with tools to sell. I am not savvy when it comes to selling on line but have always enjoyed yard sales. I was thinking about organizing and pricing some items out. Is it too early. Any tips or tricks to making my sale a success?

    My mom was a garage sale pro. She would plan it for around the first of the month because many people got paid around then and had money to burn. She advertised in the paper back then. I'm sure Craigslist or a local Facebook page would be helpful. People won't come if you don't tell them about it. And be sure to mention you have tools. Or, you could try posting them yourself on Facebook to your friends first with the price. We have a couple of sites on Facebook locally that people sell stuff and it's free.

    It's a lot of work to hold a yard sale. It's faster, easier and efficient to take photos of hand tools, possibly in sets if that seems practical. Add a brief write up, mentioning any brands like Craftsman, DeWalt, Stanley, Channellock etc. Set might be slot, Phillips, torx/star, Robertson/square, diagonal pliers, claw hammer, utility knife & level.
    OBO ' [or best offer], after all the point is to turn estate tools to cash. If any are damaged, mention & show details.

    Repeat for electric tools. If your community has a community-wide promotion, get the details and plan to participate for more traction.
