Yardsale Tip of the Day

People love to buy junk. But you have to disguise your junk as a treasure, and the best way to do that at a yardsale is to creatively market it. For example, who wants to buy a used litter box, or kitten chow, or a cat cage? No one. BUT, if you advertise a "KAT KIT" and write "GENTLY USED" on it, you'll attract the big spenders. Got books and CDs? Create the "book nook." Have a loofah sitting around? Advertise, "Used Once! Got Chafed!" The true test of your signage/marketing skills is if you can sell a bag of trash/fun for $1.
