With money in your wallet, empty bins / shelves and possibly a sun burn. Our sale was no different, except that it was FREE Ice Cream Day at Friendly’s! “Ice cream if you’re good” is a great bribe to keep 5 kids content during a Tag Sale. We followed some of our own rules, but folded on the no selling food. However, I am pretty sure I bought more brownies and cookies than any one coming to the sale.
We followed all the right steps. Posted a sale event on TagSellIt.com so that people could find the sale, as well as posting on a number of other local sites to maximize our exposure. We posted the town with big easy to read signs. We organized our sale items in groups, placing the most eye catching out front for people passing by. At the end of the day we packed up what we had left, and got it ready to bring to our local Goodwill store. While the amount of money wasn’t substantial, it will be more than enough for my wife and I to have a night out some time soon. In addition the added room in our basement and living room is more than enough reason to hold our yearly Tag Sale.
There were some great stories today, and I took quite a few pictures. I’ll try to get this all into the post sometime tomorrow. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
While I’m lucky enough to be able to host my own sale, as well as take advantage of online resources. Having the room to host a physical event is not something everyone has, see the other owner of Tag Sell It’s virtual sale. This is one of the key reasons Tag Sell It is around, to provide a way for those living in apartments / condos / etc or that are just too busy to be able to host a virtual sale of their own.
