This weekend Ryan and I are hosting an estate/moving sale in hopes of selling off a bit more of our furniture. Selling piece-by-piece on Craigslist is a little exhausting, and too slow for my taste. It's kind of a crazy venture, and I'm curious to see how this pans out for us. February isn't exactly prime yard sale-ing season, and we have a lot to sell! I am taking some proactive measures to get the word out about our sale though.
Here's what we're doing:
+ We're hosting the sale inside. We've moved all the furniture we want to keep out of the living room, and dining room and moved everything we want to sell in.
+ We've listed the sale on Craigslist, Reddit and announced it on Facebook in hopes of getting people's attention.
+ On Craiglist I've listed the ad in several categories that fit the contents of the sale.
+ I've given price points for some of the larger ticket items for convenience sake in the listings.
+ We are posting signs and flyers in our neighborhood.
+ We are limiting the sale to just Saturday. That way people won't be tempted to hold off their purchase for a discounted price.
Of course if you live in the Roanoke area we'd love to have you stop by! The sale will run from 8:30am-2:00pm, the doors will not open early.
Have any of you hosted an indoor yard sale before? Any tips and tricks to share? big kiss, bekuh
PS- Today is my sister's BIRTHDAY! Sarah, you're the bestest sister in the whole wide world, and I love you. Here's to hoping your day is magic.
