April 18, 2022
We know what you’re thinking. Do yard or garage sales still sell this 2022? We’ve seen so many old things sold on social media and with the COVID-19 pandemic, people aren’t so keen on buying old stuff on the streets, especially since most opt to stay at home rather than wander around. Well, news flash, yard sales are here to stay. They cater to a niche market anyway and there will always be people living in a neighborhood who will pass by someone’s house and see that a yard sale is happening. This is where the items you’re selling will tell how much of a success your garage or yard sale will be. People have become more discerning as to what they will buy in this kind of sales, or consume in general. So you better get your game going by selling the right items that will make you money. And oh before we list down some of the bestselling items in a garage sale, we’d like to remind you that COVID-19 is still very much around us. Although people can frolic now like they used to, have been vaccinated against the virus, and have gotten rid of face masks, you can assure your buyers that your yard sale is not a breeding ground for the virus by still strictly implementing health protocols. Have alcohol stations available in your area. Make sure all your items are properly disinfected. Control the number of people allowed to check out the items at a time. Payment should be placed on a tray and if you can, encourage cashless transactions. You can ask family members to man a particular section and give each of them a change. This will help not create big lines. Place your tables and items apart so that people can shop without being too close to one another. Wear a face mask and a smile underneath it because you’re about to have one of the best garage sales ever. So what’s the key to a successful yard sale? One thing is you should know your customers and why they are buying secondhand in the first place. They are most likely looking for items they would want to buy in-store but opt to buy secondhand so that they could save some bucks.
