The Best Yard Sale Signs

It’s summertime and the yard sales are in effect. The best signs I’ve seen so far are these mysterious arrows, so I copied them.

The technique is to have arrows all over the place, so people see them and follow them.

It’s the opposite of having a big sign with an address on it. Have many small signs leading people to the destination.

The people driving around know what the arrows mean!

Still Not Gone! Second Summer Giveaway

Of all the things to take, somebody took the plastic chest of drawers.

They left behind the wood stuff, which I thought was much nicer.

I’m not really sure how to deal with this.

One possibility is to sand down the nightstand, glue it tight, and then sell it, unfinished. Maybe list it for $30.

The two cabinets have faces. They might go easier if they didn’t have those on. I suspect plain wood boxes would be more popular.

The scanner is still a good find. The VCRs might be of interest to people who do repairs – if they aren’t taken, they’ll get hoarded in the garage for another giveaway.

First Giveaway Summer 2019, Craigslist

This batch took a couple weeks. I initially tried to sell it, but that failed. A detailed Craigslist freebies listing that got a couple people to come by. I followed up with a FB marketplace ad. Once that was done with, I put it on the curb on Friday, and posted a curb alert to the freebies and to FB marketplace. Trash pickup was on Monday, but someone took it all by Saturday night.

A few of the things were just pickups from the street, and wouldn’t sell on Ebay. Some were purchases. Some were things I just happened to find in my stuff.

The ad was:

Miscellaneous things. See the photos for the current inventory. I will update frequently, and keep adding things.

Take what you want. “thank you” to everyone who took stuff.
