How To Determine The Date(s)

  • Try to hold your sale on a weekend when there is a large sale in your area. For example, when a local church or civic group is holding a sale. Or when there are other sales in your neighborhood.
  • Think about whether your sale should be one or two days. Check to find the norm in your area. (The disadvantage of a two day sale is people on the second day may think all the good things are gone). The norm will also indicate whether to include Friday (which is considered a good day for garage sales in some areas).
  • Avoid holiday weekends when people are busy.
  • Check the weather forecast (for example, on offsite link). If rain or snow are likely, postpone your sale to another weekend. 

How To Set The Opening and Closing Time

  • Check the norm in your area.
  • As a general matter, it is advisable to start about 8:00AM  so you have time to set up, and to catch the early birds.
  • End the sale when traffic stops or follow the norm in your area.
