Fine Antique

Why aren't people stopping at my lawn sale?

Yesterday was our town's community-wide garage sale. My next-door neighbor and neighbors in the two houses across the street were also having sales. I can tell you it wasn't worth the effort to set it up. People walked right past my sale to get to the others. Now I have nice antiques, vintage glassware and other collectibles. The other people had handmade items and crafts or new looking merchandise, kid's toys and clothes. Why would people want to buy modern things when there are fine antiques to be had?

I'm having the same problem. I think nowadays most people want new and practical merchandise. My aunt makes around $150 on weekends she has sales and she sells toiletries, home care products and office supplies. Antiques aren't popular now. People are having trouble paying household expenses, whey would they but antiques to put in a house they may have to sell soon? But everyone needs toothpaste and deodorant. Also money isn't as "loose" as it was even several years ago. If you know you have valuable items and price them so, people ARE going to walk by and head for possibly better bargains. Also if you have continuous sales, the "locals" will figure "Been there - done that." The few you implied did stop to look were probably from out of town and had not seen your sale before.
