Mega Yard Sale

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us  for a spring cleaning yard sale. We have a great site.

We will make signs and advertise in the Post Times.

The more the better.

Bring your tables and all the stuff you will be selling. I will bring donuts (bring your coffee).

I will begin setting up about 6:30, come early, bring friends, no limit.

We decided to set up after sunrise. Making it easier to work without flashlights. 6am was too early.

The advertisment on Craig's List will state that we will open for business at 7:30.

Please remember we are guests of this property and all clean up is the responsibility of the participant. I will be the last to leave, don't make me clean up after you.


This meetup is now FREE! I will donate the signs and I hear other have signs. We will advertise in Graig's List and other free sites. No need to collect any money. We always try to keep it free whenever possible. Thank you.

 

A free donut  for the first dozen people.



 

Remember to bring change (Thanks Carol).

 

Let us preview your special items here

    Hi Ron,
    Just a note of thanks. We had a great time there. We cleared $169.00. I may have a garage sale at my house in Royal Palm and invite the people that attended the sale yesterday. I'll let you know if I do. Again thanks again.

    How was the yard sale?

    May 5, 2013

    • Ron

      I did okay selling mid priced stuff $10 - $15 after expenses I had $49. (donuts and sign stakes) Still have way too much stuff to sell though. I am planning a trip to the swap meet.

    I'm working at a new job today at 11a.m. I just cannot get up early and do both. I'll make it the next time if available. Good luck!

    May 4, 2013

    • Ron

      Sorry you can't make it. Perhaps Next time.

    It is now 5:45 am and the weather looks great. I am getting my coffee and I'm om my way to The Mega Yard Sale.

    May 4, 2013

  • Ron

    My car is 75% packed, I have 50 dollars in small bills and I have a tarp in case of rain. I'm ready. If it is pouring when I get up. I will post an update if anything changes. It is all systems go right now.

    Hi Everyone! I am not coming to sell but I am bringing my family to shop. Hope you all have a great day.

    Has anybody considered postponing if it rains?

    May 2, 2013

    • Ron

      well yes, if the day looks like today I will go there and unpack only if it looks like it will be better. If it is looking nasty we will reschedule. But I will go regardless of my initial opinion.

    Tips from our co-host, Thanks David
    1. Sellers bring a blanket or plastic sheet to put their smaller sale items on for, whether or not it rains, the ground in the Green Area, at 6am, will be wet.
    2. Seller should bring change (i.e., small bills) for sales and refuse change to the buyer who hands them a 20 and purchases a $2.
    3. Anyone who accepts a check is "wacked" Cash and Carry!

    I also have a comforter with shams-fits double bed well. Colors: pink, white, aqua in a patchwork pattern. It's beautiful.

    Still don't know what my status will be by Sat. Can't set up a table; still on walker and crutches. Still have 2 old TVs if anyone is interested. Both work very well. Call me or e-mail me.

    What is a good time to swing by and walk thru to shop?

    April 30, 2013

    • Ron

      Hopefully, we will have a crowd at 730. I am not sure when other sellers will start. I would guess about 8 or 830.

      April 30, 2013

  • Ron

    I just finished a week of sorting and pricing. I had come to a realization. I'm a hoarder.. Perhaps not in an extreme level but I found my self with most items I put in the sale bin...... "Gee, I hope hope no one buys this." I have 90% finished. I am so proud of myself.

    April 28, 2013

  • Ron

    some family will join us to set up tables

    April 25, 2013

  • Ron

    If you take pictures of your featured items. post it in the picture section. I will start the thread. Who knows perhaps some things we can sell earlier and the best stuff we can keep in the family.

      I have some furniture I would like to sell. Only thing is that if anyone is interested in it they would have to come to my home to pick it up. OK to post photos? Really good furniture at a great price. I am moving at the end of May and my new place is already partially furnished.

    This is a terrific idea and i have plenty of stuff to sell but I work at the Green Market on Saturdays so I cannot join you. I have run many yard sales. I have learned that the Palm Beach Post ad is a waste of money. A free ad on Craig's List and tons of signs all over ever street corner work best. And I mean a sign on each and every corner for blocks. Good luck. And watch for those who steal.

    WOW, Ron, you've been anticipating a yard sale/flea market in a huge lot for sometime now. Your vision has arrived-YIPPY! I would like to set up a table if I can get a friend to help me get some things out of my storage than I'm definitely in.

    April 22, 2013

  • Carol E.

    Ron, there are no bathroom facilities. Wanna rent a Porta-Potty? Of course, if it rains.......

    April 20, 2013

    • Ron

      "Also there is no restroom provided, bring a friend to help you" wrote that earlier, doubt we could afford the luxury of a potty. If it rains, I probably will have a cover from the sun. hope others do too cause unless it is a steady pour it will only be a short shower. Bring plastic.

      April 20, 2013

  • Vilma

    I'm looking forward to it!

    April 20, 2013

  • Carol F.

    You may want to list the yard sale on several of the free websites in addition to signs and newspaper ad. I will be more than happy to do this, if you provide the wording. After our 6AM set-up; what are the hours of the yard sale? Thank you.

    1 · April 20, 2013

    • Ron

      Thank you for the awesome idea Carol. You can post this anywhere you think we can get attention. I am hoping for over 30 participants and many more tables. I will have 3. I will email you with the wording. Probably end about 2 pm i assume.

      April 20, 2013

  • Ron

    I will freeze a few bottles of water to share. I will have a cooler anyway and I can keep it cold with frozen bottled water. Could sell some too.

    April 20, 2013

  • Arlene K.

    Is there a fee for just walking through the yard sale?

    April 18, 2013

    • Arlene K.

      Just wanted to make sure. When you read the e-mail without going to the full message, it makes it sound like it costs $5 to attend and does not specify it is for the cost of a selling spot.

      1 · April 19, 2013

    • Ron

      sorry for the confusion, I changed the details to hopefully clear that up.

      April 20, 2013

  • Ron

    By the way. You don't have to be a member to sell stuff here so tell all your friends. It is time to lighten our load of collections and make room for new stuff. We will probably browse each others tables anyway. I may come back with more than I bring. Wouldn't that be silly?

    April 20, 2013

  • Ron

    Also there is no restroom provided, bring a friend to help you. If you have a shelter cover bring it. I will probably buy one. Bring a cooler with water it may get hot. Pre-price your stuff and we will set up so we can help each other prevent shoplifting and watch each others tables if needed.

    April 20, 2013

  • Ron

    I have a battery and inverter power set up for those who need electricity to show something is working. There will NOT be power except for this.
