When city wide garage sale is over pack up what is left and place it in a designated area. Take down your signs and count your money. Take money that you initially put in for change, and then take change out for next sale. Use remainder to purchase more items at city wide garage sales in weeks between your garage sales. Mark new items as soon as you get them home, and place them with rest of items. Repeat this cycle as often as you like.
Another option is to rent space at a local flea market. Many people do not like to do this because of need to haul items back and forth. However, if you live in an apartment or in an out-of-the-way area, this may be perfect solution.
You can also have online garage sales. In this instance, you sell items as you wish, and can continue year round. There is no getting up early or setting anything up and taking it down. It is almost completely virtual.
Many garage sales online have blossomed into online auction sites, such as Amazon.com and eBay. There are printed books, e-books, periodicals, and classes to teach you how to make money on these sites. These virtual online garage sales can be done at anytime of day or night and anytime of year. Online garage sales may be wave of future.
Whichever you decide to do, or if you decide on a combination of two types of garage sales, you will always have items to sell. City wide garage sales are constantly going on in some area, but auctions, estate auctions, and thrift stores are also good hunting grounds for items to sell on your garages sale online or in your front yard.
It is a little work to get it started but more you do more you will understand mechanics of these sales, what sells and what doesn’t, and how much to ask. In no time, you will be making money in your front yard and online garage sales.
