I'm pricing out my stuff for the garage sale and I STINK at knowing how much I should charge for things - since I never actually GO garage sale-ing myself.

Help!

Brand New - Never Used Quesadilla Maker?

Used but great condition crockpot?

General small kid toys?

Picnic basket with plastic tableware?

Kids picnic table?

Kids sandbox?

Here's what I, semi-pro garage saler, would pay. ;)

Quesadilla maker - $8
Crock pot - $8-$10
Toys - depends on the size. Little ones a quarter a piece, or bag 4-5 together for $1? Bigger ones it all depends.
Picnic basket - $5-$6
Picnic table - what brand? Condition? $10-$20
Sandbox - brand? Size? $10-$20

Bigger kid items sell real fast around here!

Also, you could check craigslist for prices, and then price just a bit lower than CL since they usually run a little high. As a buyer, I always look for items 10% of retail price new. If you price them there, they will most likely sell FAST! :)

glad it's selling! i saw walmart advertising one of those turtle sandboxes for 6 bucks the other day, so if it's like that, then i'd go on the cheap side. if it's nicer/bigger, i'd go closer to 10.
