Would you buy drinks and snacks while yard sale shopping from a 5 year old?

My sister and I are having a yard sale next Saturday and my 5 year old wants to sell drinks and snacks at his own little snack shop stand. We plan on buying prepackaged foods and drinks such as little debbies, cokes, bottled water, etc. So, if you were going to buy what types of drinks and snacks would you want?

  • Sure would. I would buy a drink over a snack cake though, so I wouldn't buy too many of those if I were you. I would make sure to keep the stand near the money table so you can keep a close eye on him. Make sure the drinks are COLD! I would also buy some bottled water.

  • Aw sure I would! That's such a cute idea. I'd definitely go for the drinks, because I'm always thirsty. ;) For snacks, um, probably a small bag of chips, popcorn, muffins or a piece of fruit, like an apple or nectarine. Good luck and have fun. :)

  • Heck yeah! I can't count how many times I've been yard saling and THIRSTY as heck! But usually you are hitting "piggy back" yard sales on the same street and you don't want to leave to go to the store or the store is away from where you are, etc.

    Plus how cute would he be? :)

    I would buy water, nature's valley bars, etc. :)

  • I like to buy from kids.
    But I notice that they do not sell much.
    I buy because it is a good experience for the child.
    Keep the prices very low, so more people will buy.
    I do not like the kids to get discouraged.
