How long should I wait?

We were selling a swing set in a yard sale today and a lady said she wanted it. Well she looked at it and said she was going to have to get her truck, but she wanted it. It is now almost 9 and she hasnt called or came to get it...
How long should I wait before trying to sell it again?

  • Keep it open till tomorrow. If she doesn't return it is her fault. You can't hold it indefinitely.

  • Yep, I'd agree.
    If she never paid for it, and she hasn't called, showed up or ANYTHING... well, just wait until tomorrow - noon, and I'd resell the thing.

  • I agree with the PP, but if it was me not getting a call back before 8pm is rude and I woulden't sell it to her even if she still wanted it.

  • You should have asked her for a deposit to make sure she was serious and she would come back.

  • I tell them whoever shows up first with cash gets it. I don't hold it for anyone
