run an add in the paper for a full week before the sale. list all of the general items that will be for sale. tools will bring people from miles around, and baby items is another big attention getter! sell clothes for a set price per piece, separating them into categories if you can. (new clothes $x per piece, gently used $x per piece, ect) trying to price every single item will make you insane. know the value of what you're selling, and only expect 1/3 or that amount at best. items like coins and jewelry, and art, should be sold under "make offer". have the bottom # you're willing to accept in your mind, and see what the customers are willing to give. don't sell yourself short, but consider all offers. when someone asks "how much for the picture?" you say "how much will you give me?" sometimes their answer will be well over the bottom amount you had in mind.
