Here are some practical steps you can start taking today:
Get everyone on board to support your garage sale fundraiser
How many dancers do you have on your team?
It is important to get the whole gang involved. The more families involved the more things you can sell. The more things you sell… the more money your dance team earns.
Advertise your Used Item sale & the reason why you are holding it – Get the word out about your Cause..!
Are there any families that can’t join in the sale? Then ask them to volunteer to post fliers, signs and internet posts to advertise your yard sale and the good cause behind it.
Be sure to post it on craigslist.com as well as on social media sites like Facebook.
Remember that you can never have enough advertising. Be sure to check with your local police department about any local ordinances before posting any signs.
Get a good location for your Lawn sale
There is an old saying in real estate that goes, “Location! Location! Location!”
Ideally, you want something that has a lot of walk & drive-by traffic.
Poll everyone on the dance team to see who has the best location.
Get everyone to donate stuff to your yard sale fundraiser
Planning is the key here.
Why not reach out to the other kids in your school? You can make fliers announcing the garage sale and the cause it will help.
You can also ask for donated items to sell. Remember, people have things sitting in their garages, basements and attics just collecting dust for years. The personal pitch you use highlighting your good cause may be just the thing to get them to donate things you can sell.
Yard sale favorites include:
- Baby clothes and items
- Kid clothes
- Teen clothes
- Hand & power tools
- Small kitchen appliances
BONUS TIP: You can also offer refreshments like bottled water, soda and cookies for sale as these may provide another source income for you.
This is a great opportunity to show your visitors your dance fundraiser catalogs.
