lillian as long as those are sold prices you are using for compairson some times it is a fishing price like how much can I ask for this ? customers always want a deal.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on April 16, 2013 at 10:21am

I research what I can through etsy, ebay and local classifieds, the  get an average price, then cut that in half. This is the price I ask.

lillian, people have been told be cheap you just want rid of this stuff,

I have people in my store every week make offers of less than 1/2 of the sticker, IE, I had 2 unique fruit jars not rare but unique had 12 each, gal picked them up and said would you take 10 for both I said no, she later picked them up and brought them to the counter and asked what would you take for them, I told her 11 each and she bought them

I had my first sale of the season this past weekend. I don't know what most people are looking for, but apparently it's something I don't have. People were stopping, but few bought, and almost everyone asked for a huge reduction in the asking price. However, I did sell a a dresser for $35 (full asking price) - that was the "big" item for the sale. And considering I made $62.50 all weekend, you can see I didn't sell much else.  The cold , damp weather may have put people off. I have some old wooden soap (Octagon) boxes my step-grandfather made over into tool boxes. I had them priced $30 each or both for $50 - one man offered me $5 for both! Needless to say I refused that generous offer. One woman wanted a solid metal patio set I have for $30, but said she only had $10 on her. This offer I also refused. One woman picked up an armload of small stuff. When I said $5 for everything, she just dumped it down on a table and walked out; didn't even bother to negotiate. It seemed nobody wanted to pay the asking price. My reply to these folks is that it's too early in the garage sale season to let things go for practically nothing and to come back in October and if I still have the item they want, I may be more inclined to bargain. I had several young guys stop and ask if I had guitars - that seems to be the hot item this year. Another woman just wanted wool blankets. Our community-wide sale is the weekend of May 18th. Hopefully the weather will improve by then and put people in a better buying mood.

Hire a kid - teenager in your neighborhood - very unlikely he would get hurt and for a few bucks, most young guys are happy to help.

Even if someone were to get injured your home owners would cover it anyway - think your being to cautious dear! :)

I've been storing a dresser in my detached garage. I want to bring it inside and upstairs, but it's too heavy for me to jostle around. I have no one to help me and hiring a mover would cost more that the dresser is worth. If I have a neighbor or relative help and they get hurt, I would be liable. Any suggestions?

LOL Charles at these great reviews and creative signs!! :)

Just one comment re: Brenda's Question Estate Sale vs Auction.

I think both have their advantages and disadvantages. That being said. If you sell off all the "high end" items from an estate sale, you will not bring in the high dollar collector's and dealers.

In my case, I feel that when we have more "high end" items, I do get the price I'm asking, or close to it, and once the person is there they look around and tend to buy much more stuff.

On the other hand, I've been to many auctions where a higher end item may go "out of this world" in price, or it may bring a very low dollar amount - seems more of a "crap shoot". Now, I'm sure that's not true for all sales/auctions. Just wanted to add my two cents! :)
