    How often do you have a rummage sale? Do you always hold it at the same location?

    I held a Rummage Sale in May made $350-$500 and then added alot more stuff and tried to hold another in July made $150ish and I actually had people that would get to the end of the driveway and say "oh I was here earlier in the summer" and get back in their car without looking. I price things to move, so I am wondering how you combat the impression that it is the same old stuff.

    Normally we have rummage sales 2-4 times a summer, starting in May and going through the beginning of September. I live on a busy street in an area that is kind of known for rummage sales so there are usually a few going on and people are more apt to stop when there are a few they can walk between rather then just stopping for one sale. Our rummage sale always has new people contributing to it and myself and my Mom are constantly marking new stuff for the sale so there is a lot of turnover in merchandise. We have actually had several people come back from year to year and say they watch for our rummage sale because they love how clean and organized it is. Smile Not sure how to combat the impression that it is the same stuff other then made move things around and have new stuff towards the end of the driveway.
    I will have an entry on the last rummage sale as soon as I get the final numbers from my Mom....it was insane!
