How To Market A Garage/Yard Sale

Next » « Previous


Advertise at least a week before your sale date.

  • Advertise in your local newspaper and penny-saver.
  • Put up notices on community bulletin boards and boards in stores such as supermarkets.
  • List your sale on line. For example:
  • List your sale in applicable apps. For instance:
    • Garage Sale Rover
    • Garage Sales Tracker 
  • Put up signs on street corners with an arrow and your address for at least a few days before your sale.
  • If there is a sale nearby, post signs with arrows leading to your sale.

Ads should be simple and include:

  • The days
  • Hours
  • Location (including driving directions if you live out of the way)
  • Some of the categories of items you intend to sell. For example: Women's clothing size 6 - 8, Children's clothing, Household Items and more.

Some experts suggest that signs only say TODAY, even if the sale continues over several days. Advertising "today" keeps potential customers from postponing coming or thinking the best items were sold the day before.

Signs should be large enough so people can read the writing as they drive by.

NOTE: It is advisable to take down all neighborhood signs as soon as possible after the sale. Keeping the signs up longer can hurt your relationship with neighbors, and possibly lead to a fine.
