*Give yourself plenty of time to get organised before the day of the sale so you
can arrive early to attract eager bargain hunters when the site opens.
* Turn up with tables, plenty of small change and carrier bags, as well as pens and
paper for marking prices. Also bring a chair with you so you’re not on your feet
*Household goods and kitchen items that you no longer use tend to sell well as do
CD’s, DVD,s and garden tools. If you take a mobile phone remember the charger.
* Make your site stand out, for example with a bright tablecloth.
* Display your most saleable items where people can see and touch them, with less
saleable things such as bric-a-brac and general household goods spread out on the
ground or in boxes. Use coat hangers for clothes and try to get your hands on a dress
rail to show them off.
* Know how much you want for your items before you go, write everything on a list
or put price tickets on them. But let any buyer know that you are willing to negotiate.
* Sellers are likely to haggle and while you should try to get the best price for
your things, consider whether you really want to take them home again at the end
of the day.
