I usually hold a Stampin’ Garage Sale twice a year. We missed our Spring event because of state restrictions, but were able to hold the fall one last weekend. We did require masks and added this to our newspaper and FB ads. Only a couple of people left in a huff.
This is a great way to increase sales, an opportunity for customers to get new product without spending money from their pocket, and a chance to advertise your business to find a new customer or two! We always hold the sale on Friday and Saturday, and I have a lot of repeat garage sale customers that were so disappointed that we didn’t have a sale in the spring. They were afraid we weren’t going to do one this year, and they were really excited to see our ad in the paper. They said they wait and save up all year for this sale!! This event is for my customers, and we had 15 participants that brought things this time. As a group, we made over $2500!! It was our best one yet! Unfortunately, because we are moving, it will probably be our last.
A couple of years ago, I wrote down all my tips for holding a Stampin’ Garage Sale, and you’ll find them at the link below. This is a perfect time for a garage sale. The weather is nice and it’s a chance to get a nice sales jump for the new Stampin’ Up! year.

One thing we did this year was to have "fill-a-bag" for $10. I put tons of little stuff I didn't want anymore, some dating to the years before Stampin' Up! Everybody loved it, and except for one woman who overstuffed her bag until it split, people were judicious about how much they took.
