.... held an antique sale or upscale yard sale?I'm looking for advice or tips on throwing something other than a yard sale. My basement is busting at the seems with antiques, collectibles, and home decor stuff, but I don't want to hold just another yard sale and give the stuff away . I don't expect to get store prices either, I'm just looking for something in between. I had thought about taking stuff to a local indoor flea market, but that is a lot of hauling and work. I could sell it on my blog, but I really hate dealing with the packing and shipping.
So that leaves me with possibly turning my garage into a temporary store for a three day weekend sale. What do you think? Have you ever done it before? I thought I could clean out the garage quite well and then set it up with little vignettes . I would have people enter to through my mudroom door and block the rest of the house off and they would go directly to the garage. That way, I don't have to worry about the weather. I was thinking of advertising it with something like "antique and home decor sale", any thoughts? Would you go to something like that? I want to distinguish it from a typical yard sale, because like I said, I don't want to sell things for a quarter.
There is an annual craft sale here in May and I thought about piggybacking off of that because I know if women are out for one thing they are likely to be looking for more to go to. I also have a friend with some hand made goods who is looking to sell things, so I could possibly have a few people involved.
I know I have mentioned something like this before, but this time I am serious, my basement needs to get clean!
Any words of wisdom appreciated.
