Have you ever spent a Saturday morning going to yard sales? Here are some tips for making the most of your yard sale shopping spree.
By noon, sellers are exhausted. They have been up since the crack of dawn putting out stuff for the yard sale and the morning is the busiest time for them. By lunch time, they don’t care what you pay for that Wedgewood cachet pot as long as you take it with you. It is a great time to negotiate or even get extra stuff for free.
things should be tagged and some things — such as oversized items — should be left untagged to leave room to negotiate with a potential buyer. Some people like to have a $1 table or a $5 table at their yard sale, but this opens up the temptation for some buyers to get a bargain price just by moving an item from a higher priced table onto a lower-priced table.
