I am having a yard sale on Saturday. I am going over my prices today while my son is with his dad and I want to get an outsider viewpoint.



clothes - $1.00
jeans - $2.50 (they are all like new and "fashion" jeans. mostly TCP)
$60.00 umbrella stroller - $10.00
brand new in box food processor - $30.00 (going for $50 & up on ebay)
brand new in box smoothie maker - $25.00
2 lamps - $10.00 for both
kids shoes - $3-$5




Too steep? Fair? What are your thoughts?

I think it's fine. If people don't like it they'll haggle.

That's what I figured. And I will probably give deals if they buy enough clothes or whatever.

Exactly. Like if they buy a huge amount round it lower for them.

yes! I just need the money and the stuff gone so hopefully it all works out. I just hate haggling because I WANT to be nice, but I NEED the money lol

Everything sounds pretty good. Be prepared to give the food processor and smoothie maker for less though. People don't like to pay more than 5 dollars for something at a yard sale. So they will end up haggling.

I figured. I just want to aim a little higher because they have literally never been out of the box, but I'd be okay accepting less than what I posted. I just don't want to start at $5.00 for BNIB crap and end up with $2.50 when I could put it on ebay for $50 haha

I have never had a yard sale before. But I am a very avid thrifter with Goodwill and rummages. I would never buy something that was higher than Goodwill's prices. So I think its safe to kind of go off of what they price things!

I don't shop goodwill enough to know their prices! Any input from you about that?

clothes - $1.00 (Are they sets of clothes like outfits?)
jeans - $2.50 (they are all like new and "fashion" jeans. mostly TCP) (I'd maybe do $2 even for the sake of my stupid OCD rofl)
$60.00 umbrella stroller - $10.00 (Seems a pretty good price. If it doesnt sell the first day I'd mark it to $5 the last day)
brand new in box food processor - $30.00 (going for $50 & up on ebay) (I have no idea what a food processor is but I just know there are very few things I'd spend $30 on at a rummage sale....I usually only bring that much with xD)
brand new in box smoothie maker - $25.00 (Same as the food processor)
2 lamps - $10.00 for both (Are they just the bases or do they have shades too?)
kids shoes - $3-$5 (I paid $5 for a pair of baby boy converses once at a garage sale but I probably wouldnt do it again)
