Green Tips: Get the Most From Your Stoop Sale

New York Magazine 07.26.2009

We've always loved both sides of a garage/stoop sale — he buying side (hunting for treasures) and the selling side (getting rid of unwanted stuff and making a little cash). And, over the years, we've learned that there's definitely a right way and a wrong way to host a garage sale. On that note, New York magazine has some tips ...

We think their 6 steps to a successful stoop sale are pretty right on. Some of the tips are obvious (advertise on Craigslist a few days before the sale) and some are a little less so (keep the stuff you're selling in a small space — don't let it looked too spaced out and picked over).

Get all the tips here. Then see how one stoop sale went down in Park Slope on July 18.

What are your best tips for a successful stoop/garage sale?
