Here are some of their top tips to make your sale a smashing success ! Tips for a successful garage sale Vide Greniers, a flea market organised by Marie Anne Perrier
Quality is key
At flea markets, people expect a dignified shopping experience. You may be tempted to get rid of torn clothes or damaged objects, but it won’t reflect well on your stall. Be respectful and only put items in good condition up for sale. And remember that clean objects and ironed clothes sell better !
Prepare a checklist
Make sure you have everything you need ahead of time, including a chair or stool, a calculator, a pen, a piece of paper or receipt book and price tags. “We take sanitation very seriously”, add the organisers, “so be sure to bring your mask and some hand sanitizer for your customers”.
Start collecting items now
Make it a habit to collect and sort items on a regular basis. Go through the things in your house first, and then start asking friends and family if they have anything to sell.
Bring a helping hand !
It’s much easier to deal with customers and take a break if someone is there to help you out !
“Don’t limit yourself to clothes”, suggest Marie Anne and Anik. “People are looking for good deals on all kinds of stuff”. Accessories, bedding, electronics, fishing equipment, tools, musical instruments, vintage objects… The sky's the limit! Think outside the box!
