I plan to have one, but it will probably be at the end of summer or early fall. I have so much stuff to go through first though.
I think one of the keys is to price the big items a little higher than what you really want and most likely someone will offer you slightly less than you have marked. Another tip is if you have a lot of clothes that aren't name brand, then let people fill a bag for a $2 or $5 something like that. That way you get rid of stuff that doesn't sell that well by itself. Name brand clothes and shoes will sell, so be sure to mark them. And, finally the biggest key to a successful yard sale is advertising and location. The busier the street, the better the sale. If you don't live on a busy street, advertise in your local paper or trading post with your big ticket items...tv, baby clothes, gas grill, etc. Good luck!
