i want to come :D i love yard sales
post on craigslist! mention on the ad a few hot items you're selling so you stand out from the others posted on there
price everything...at least most of it. there are shy people and people who would prolly buy an item but after asking a price a few times on different things, they won't bother to ask any more.
big signs with big letters and address...i agree, i miss probably a bunch of good ones while driving by.
display your items in a cool way. a bunch of people "guage" a sale by just driving by. i never stop at a sale with one table, or one tarp and the rest in boxes. put the cool/pretty stuff out front... big items, and kitchen items always tend to do better than a box of clothes or something...
at the end of the day, if you have a bunch of clothes (around 11) you can do a bargain of "grab a bag and fill it for 2) you'd be amazed at how that appeals to people and adds up.
