-TIPS FOR SELLERS

.    Schedule a yard sale on Fridays and Saturdays around the 1st or 15th of the month as people tend to have the most cash available.
.    Have a large quantity of items to sell with a lot of variety and price appropriately! Sentimental value will not increase the value for others
Clean all items! Clean off items if they have been sitting around collecting dust as they will present *better and possibly garner more interest and a higher sale price
.    Place an ad in the local newspaper, local bulletin boards and websites (like Bookoo!). Highlight special or high value/high demand items that will draw attention (e.g. brand name items, large pieces of furniture, technology, etc.)
.    Another way to sell items that didn't find a home during your yard sale is to post it online on a site like Bookoo where it will be exposed to even more potential buyers.

-TIPS FOR BUYERS
.    Do your homework and look at classified ads and sites like Bookoo to set up a strategy
.    Keep an eye out for moving and estate sales when people are emptying out their closets and storage
.    Shop early for the best selection, go the day it starts
.    Carry cash in small bills and avoid wearing flashy jewelry or expensive clothes
.    If there are certain types of items you are looking for, don't hesitate to ask
