Summertime = yard sale time! In fact, this Saturday is known as "Garage Sale Day" so obviously this is a thing.
A few weekends ago, the Watkinezes had their annual sale. We try to only do this once a year because it requires so much work. However, this year felt like one of our more successful ones! I would like to think that these printable tags had something to do with that. :)
Having big tags like this pulls practically anyone into your sale. When you see a sign that says 50 cents for a shirt, doesn't that make you want to browse around for every more items? I know that makes me dive right in!
I also think we tend to forget that a lot of yard sale shoppers don't like bargaining or haggling. Even asking for a price can get annoying, especially if the hosts are busy with other guests. Having items tagged eases their shopping experience tremendously, which means they'll stick around for more and most likely spend more. All they would have to do is grab the item and go to check out. Win-win for both you and your guest!
I created five different print-outs for the sale: 25 cent tags, 50 cent tags, 75 cent tags, dollar tags, and blank tags (for bigger price points). Print as many as you need!
Here are a few quick tips for your yard sale pricing:
1. Use 25 cent increments. This makes payment and giving change back much easier.
2. Price to sell. Unless you're selling for multiple dates, you want to get rid of as much as you can. My rule: Nothing comes back in the house!
3. Tag your items before the date. Don't wait to tag everything the morning of. You'll be so busy setting up and helping guests. It's an unnecessary stress that you can avoid if you do it a few days before.
I hope these tags help you out. Be sure to let me know how it goes!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
