Autumn is the perfect time to hold a garage sale, and The Forbes Phoenix is here to help. Garage sales are an easy way to transform trash into treasure. Selling unwanted items also eases the burden on the environment, allowing people to reuse and recycle goods.
What to do? Collect all the unwanted items from your house, and figure out a price. A general guide is to ask 25 to 35% of what it cost new. Clothes sell for about 5 to 10% of the original cost. Place any free items towards the back, so buyers see your priced items first. Make sure you have enough change and plastic bags to give to buyers.
Advertise your sale in the Phoenix Trash & Treasure Trails to let over 2,000 readers know where to bag a bargain. For a quote contact Sylvie Maloney on 0490 517 590 or email sales@parkes- phoenix.com.au
