Tips for a Successful White Lake Garage Sale

There are many things people can do to ensure a busy garage sale with crowds of people coming and going all day
Sept. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- White Lake, MI – Why do some White Lake Garage sales do so well while others flop?  Check out the yard sale down the street and see how many cars are stopping and how many neighbors are walking to the site.  Look at another garage sale and notice how it appears as if no one is even at home.

When White Lake residents have a garage sale many are hoping to get rid of lots of unwanted household and garage clutter and make a few dollars too.  Selling outgrown baby clothes, tools, books and household items for a bargain ensures getting rid of the clutter and creating a more organized area.

Another reason to have garage sales in White Lake is to meet the neighbors and socialize.  In any event, a White Lake garage sale can only be a success if lots of people visit and shop.  Here are some tips for having a successful White Lake garage sale:

Advertise online about a week or two before the event.  Placing the ad early helps it appear on page one of a Google search when people are looking for White Lake garage sales for the upcoming weekend.

Put bright colored signs on the main road leading to your neighborhood, with dates and location clearly printed.

Put another sign at each end of the street with arrows pointing in the direction of the White Lake garage sale.

Put a sign at the end of the driveway.  Put a few balloons on the sign to help attract attention in case a visitor parks their car in front of it when they come shopping.  

If the purpose of the White Lake garage sale is to raise funds for a community event, church or other cause, be sure to have signs indicating this purpose.

Price everything to sell and be willing to bargain.  

Remember, there is more to having a successful garage sale in White Lake than making a lot of cash.  Meeting people and offering a great bargain to those who are less fortunate is part of what makes the event successful.  Getting rid of unwanted items and having someone else carry them off means not having to pack them up and take them to the Salvation Army or other thrift store.

White Lake garage sales are happening all over the place from early spring to late summer and early fall.  Get out and socialize, meet the neighbors and find great bargains too!  Visit for details of a White Lake garage sale in a neighborhood that always has several yard sales going on every weekend.
