  • Decide if the garage sale is to make money or to just get rid of stuff. If its to make money then price a little higher and see what you make. Remember there are stores that buy used clothing and baby stuff so if it doesnt sell at your prices you can always save for the next garage sale and mark it down or take it to the resale shops afterwards, eighter way its a win situation. IF your just wanting to get rid of the items then price it as an offer to good to refuse type deal. also you can base your garage sale price on what shape it is in and how much you actually gave for it. Say you gave 10.00 for a toy and its still brand new then you might want to put a couple of dollars on say 20-25% of the actual price... give or take depending upon opinion. Hope that helps.

  • I've gotten clothes at .50-$1.00. I've also pd a little more than that.
    Stuffed animals don't sell well. I donated mine.
    Depends on what the toy is.
