money, a local neighborhood
yard sale offers multiple vendors all close together,
and shop like you are
bidder on the block. Everyone knows that there are
competitors close by
purchasing dollars, so they will all be more apt to accept an
offer of a lower
price. This is a Win Win for You!
Should I try to negotiate
the price of Yard Sale items?
This really depends on a
few factors. Not every yard
sale presenter is willing to
haggle over price.
Scout out the layout and
see if they tend to group
items of similar kind, like
electronics, books, furniture,
The neater the layout and fewer
items for sale they will probably not negotiate, whereas
if it looks like a lot of items are for sale, offer a
lower price or do the polite thing and ask;
"Would you be willing to take a little less?". If they
say yes, or offer you a reduced price,
they have opened up to consider bids from you. Just don't
insult their pricing too much or
they could go back to their original price. Be smart, if
you are late to the yard sale, and
the sale is winding down, lower prices are usually welcomed.
Only thing is, the best items
have already sold. Shop early for the best items to buy
and always think of the
possibilities of buying at a good price just to resell
and make a profit.
