Clothing Racks and Table Rentals

Rent Clothing Racks and Tables for your Garage Sale   —   First you want to borrow or build as many tables and clothing racks as you can, of course. (A couple of ladders and some plywood will do in a pinch!) Then if you still don't have enough display space to get everything you're selling up off the ground for your garage sale,   you may want to rent a few inexpensive folding tables or clothing racks either for a day or an entire garage sale weekend.

In the Oklahoma City Metro, for example, you can rent 6 ft rectangular folding tables for $7 per weekend and 36" round clothing racks for $13 per weekend. You don't even have to pay a deposit. Both tables and clothing racks fold up for easy transport and fit inside most vehicles.

To reserve tables and clothing racks for a garage sale in NW Oklahoma City, Yukon or Mustang call 405.209.2424. In SW Oklahoma City, Moore or Norman call 405.863.8590. Or visit the Clothing Rack's Facebook page, here.

Cute Garage Sale Aprons

They have a darling flirty cut, adjustable neck ties and long waist ties that you can tie in an ample bow in the front or back of your apron.

Cash Register Garage Sale App

Garage Sale Resource: Free Multi-Family Calculator

Checkout Customers, Track Multiple Sellers — If you're hosting a multi-family garage sale (or any event with more than one seller,) you need TallySheet. More than just a free Garage Sale cash register app, TallySheet ( allows multiple cashiers to login on their smart phones and checkout customers simultaneously. The app not only calculates totals for each transaction (including how much change to give the customer) but also tracks who sold what for how much, the total amount earned by each seller and it generates real-time reports with accurate sales and payout totals.

Accept Credit Cards

Square Up — Accept credit card payments from customers at your Garage Sale...  or anywhere! You can often find used card readers on Amazon for just two or three dollars and brand new Square card readers for as little as $6 and up.

Counterfeit Detection

Counterfeit Detector Pen w/ UV Light + 2 FREE Pens

Counterfeit Detector Pen w/ UV Light Cap + 2 FREE Pens — With $850 billion dollars of mostly twenty and 100 dollar counterfeit bills floating around the U.S., it's pretty risky to accept large bills at your Garage Sale. But refuse cash, and you risk losing customers. Fortunately, today for less than $10 you can buy the same type of counterfeit detection device that bank tellers use. This Dri-mark counterfeit detection pen is our favorite because it has two effective tests for detecting bad bills in one convenient pocket size pen. It's also really easy to use. A quick pen stroke authenticates U.S. currency paper. (If it turns dark, the bill is fake.) And a powerful UV light reveals the hidden security strip. Detect one bad twenty dollar bill and the product has paid for itself.

Free pickup of Garage Sale Leftovers

Free Donation Pick-Up — At SATTRUCK.ORG it's easy to schedule a time for the Salvation Army Truck to come to you! You can specify whether your items for donation are out on the curb ready for pickup, or if you would prefer for the driver to ring your doorbell and speak to you first.

Garage Sale Caddy

Personal Folding Shopping Cart — I use a personal shopping cart to keep my hands free at garage sales so I can shop. Some garage sale hosts give you plastic grocery bags to help you carry purchases, which I really appreciate. I'll slide them up my arm and keep shopping, but eventually, they get too heavy -- especially at Neighborhood Garage Sales when I'm too far away from my car to jet back and stash what I've bought so far.

Besides being lightweight and rust-resistant, what I like about this particular personal shopping cart  is how easily it folds flat and fits in my car trunk where I store it until next time. The double baskets are really handy, too. I put my purse and large-ish garage sale finds in the big basket and my wallet, breakables and small valuables that I want to keep a close eye on in the rear-facing smaller basket. It's been a real game-changer for me.

ManualsLib —  Second-hand appliances and electronics don't always come with the user manual. Fortunately, allows you to view and download pdf user manuals for more than 1,600,000 products by 43,462 brands. It's absolutely FREE and there's no signup required.
