Many people hold a garage sale,
but are hopeless when it comes to advertising and actually getting people
to show up. This is where a garage sale organizer comes in.
An organizer will price items
accordingly (with the owner's input, of course!), advertise through various
means such as effective signs, classifieds and flyers, and get it all
organized enough for people who come to the sale to be able to see everything.
An organizer will also accept
payments, haggle with prospective buyers, and mark-down items as appropriate.
A garage sale organizer must
love garage sales (yes, the kind of person who can't bear to pass one
without stopping). You must know the ins and outs of advertising, and
know what prices things sell for in your region.
There are long hours on weekends,
busy time is in the spring and summer, but weekday and winter work is
minimal. And kids are usually welcome to tag along to the sale.
