Tomorrow is Memorial Day and it marks the unofficial kick off of summer. Summer is bright and beautiful and people are happy, but if you don’t have any money, it could be a very long summer.
As such people are getting prepared for the beach and their vacation, but with gas prices up and plane fare and hotel accommodations, the one thing we need more of is money.
So, you did the spring cleaning and you threw away what needed to be thrown away and you pack away the winter clothes and you have now taken out the summer clothes. Well, let’s face it some of those summer clothes won’t fit. So why not sell. Summer is the time for the garage sales, the flea markets, and the bazaars
You can hold your own sales in the virtual world (Internet) using Ebay or your own website, or you can do it in the real world (at a community fair, bazaar, fair, garage sale). Sell things that are in good quality and in demand- not the stuff that other people are throwing out too. For example, I was passing a flea market yesterday and all but two tables were really not worth a second look
Quality and reasonable pricing will make you some money. What are people really looking to buy? They are looking for unusual things such as (paintings, jugs, vases, jewelry). A good rule is to sell what you would buy. Now, depending on your price you might not make a million dollars, but you will make money if you are selling quality stuff at reasonable prices. All the best.
