  • Price them what you would be willing to pay for them if you were to purchase them at another yard sale.

  • Don't go too high, but go a little higher than what you want to sell for. That way, when people come up, you can say everything is negotiable and when someone asks you to come down on something you will still get what you wanted.

  • Trash the carseat, people are supposed to start new for safety reasons.
    2) $10-$20 depending on cond.
    3) $20? I think wooden ones are pretty expensive new aren't they?
    4) $10-$20/bag of clothes?
    5) $1-$5?
    6) $50?
    7) $20?
    8) $5-$10

    People really look to find things for $1 or less at yard sales, but it looks like you are getting rid of some nice stuff. Hope I helped. Maybe take all peoples answers and average them, then you should have a fair price. :)

  • It would really depend on the type of condition they're in and the type of area you live in. We just sold a carrier with base (also a Graco, I believe) at our garage sale last month for $10.

  • I, personally, would not price anything over $10.00. If the items are used, I could buy a new one at Big Lots of Walmart for about $20.00.

  • The bigger items I would say $10-$20 except the day bed I would do like $40 on that. The clothes I would sell individually.
