Garage Sale tips and a handy price guide to help you buy and sell seasonal items like a pro!


Seasonal Garage Sale Pricing Guide





Heads up!  Saturday is the best day of the year to buy and sell seasonal items!


"Knowing what to buy is only half your job as a consumer. The rest is knowing when to buy it." - Kelly Hancock, Faithful Provisions.

Everyone knows to shop on Black Friday for the best deals on new Flat Screen TVs and most bargain hunters wouldn't dream of buying a new mattress on any day except President's Day or Labor Day. But that's retail. For garage salers, the best days of the year to buy and sell second hand seasonal items are

the first Saturday in May and the first Saturday in October.




Here's a list of some of the most popular seasonal items you can expect to see at garage sales through December, along with suggested pricing.
