I'm thinking of having a garage sale next weekend. As long as the weather permits, since it was freezing today. Freezing to me anyway.

I would like some opinions.... How much do you guys sell stuff for? Like....

Baby Clothes?
Adult Clothes?
Bouncer?
Swing?
Exersaucer?

What about clothing items that are still brand new with tags attached? Would it be better to sell that stuff on ebay?

Thanks in advance for the input girls!

ithink items with tags are great for ebay/justmommies swap ship, mommy auctions.

as for as prices on the bouncer,swing and exerciser goes-- check what other people are lsiting them on craigslist. i think

I've found that the cheaper I price stuff like clothes ... the more people buy. When I put $2-$5 on outfits ... people might buy 3 or 4 at most. But if I price them at $1 ... they will buy 8 or 9 .... so I end up earning more by pricing them lower.


Bouncers here are $5-$10, Swings depend on the swing....newest models go for more obviously .. I just sold my Rainforest swing for $50, exersaucers here tend to go for $10-$20

You can search craigslist for your area and see how much things are selling for.
