Yard Sale season at www.garagesalegold.com

Brrrr! It’s getting chilly outside in some parts of the country. But, guess what? The fall is one of the absolute best times to have a yard sale. Yard sale season is in its height in October and November. Many folks are out looking for something to do besides picking apples. And what better way to shop guilt free than at a yard sale?   A Yard sale can take place in a yard, but can also include indoor areas such as barns, garages, etc.  So, while you might have some items outside, it certainly does not preclude you from having inside items as well.  In fact, the colder it gets, the less competition that you will have for your yard sale and therefore the more people might show up at yours.

This summer, there were weekends in my local paper that advertised 30 different yard sales on one day. That is competition! In the colder months, your yard sale may only be one of three 0r four advertised. Therefore, with less to pick from, chances are you could get MORE people on colder days than in warmer months, just due to the lack of competition.

Remember, a yard sale does not have to be in a yard any more than a garage sale has to be in a garage.  The term yard sale connotes a slightly higher level of merchandise than a garage sale so you may even be able to charge more for your items.

Please also remember that at www.garagesalegold.com, we always promote giving a percentage of your haul to your favorite charity. Or at least donating your left over items to a charity.  Times are tough and charities really need our help, so make that extra money and save alittle for the causes that pull at your heart strings.

Happy saling!

Occupy Yard Sale at www.garagesalegold.com

The Occupy Wall Street movement is sweeping the country. I say, Occupy Yard Sale! I would like to see people camping out to get their hands on the greatest deals at their neighborhood yard sale. I would like to see people having a yard sale and making some quick cash so that they can pocket some quick cash to help pay the bills.

Of course I am upset that large corporations don’t pay their fair share of taxes, but instead of camping out and getting arrested, I would rather fight back by selling great things to people at great discounts.

I went to a yard sale last weekend and got an outrageously great 10 speed bike in perfect condition for $10. Now that is something to camp out for. I also got at a Yard Sale a book that I had really wanted to read for a long time for $1.  I got lots of other items as well for fantastic prices. In fact, I have furnished all of my homes with yard sale goodies and no one would ever know!

It’s time for Occupy Yard Sale. So the big corporations got bailouts. Time to bail each other out and buy each other’s stuff.
