IT'S ALL IN THE NAME
Be funny, smart and snappy to cut through the clutter and grab shoppers attention. As the song says "Express yourself!".
TELL PEOPLE WHAT YOU'RE SELLING

ADD SOME EXTRA YOU
You’re one in a million trillion, so reflect yourself in your sale promotions. Green thumbed? Offer gardening tips with every purchase. Love Dolly Parton? Get your best country outfit on and get ‘em down to your Dollywood sale.

Garage sales are just one side of a very sexy, consumption-friendly dice. So we say get rolling. Good old fashioned game of Yahtzee, anyone?

It’s almost sale day. Sit back, grab a cuppa and eat up these simple tips to help you crush it.
