We had a neighborhood garage sale this weekend and I had tons and tons of things to sell as we continue to change our home over from the brown and gold palette to the grays and creams. I needed big traffic to get rid of ALOT of brown things.
So I decided to make fancy schmancy signs to advertise for the garage sale. And they worked! EVERYONE was talking about them! And it was one of our most profitable sales ever!
They literally took minutes apiece but were totally worth the time!
They were huge and funny and so bright! And it was my mom’s idea to write this one!
I bought the hot pink foam board at Target last week. Mr. Magic put them together for me and made them all two-sided by using metal frames in between the foam boards. They were an awesome way to advertise for a garage sale. Here’s a set of poster boards from target that has all the fun bright colors. But if you’re looking for something less expensive (and less rigid) here’s another set of assorted colors.
I had so much fun coming up with crazy things to say!
Since I have had garage sale signs get stolen in the past (true story…. we used to have painted wooden signs), I thought I would be smart and write this on the back of every one.
Well, darn it anyway. We still had one sign (with 2 cute sides) get stolen! I’m installing trackers on them for the next sale in the fall! ha!
If you enjoyed the these signs that advertise for a garage sale, I’d love for you to PIN them and share with your friends! Also, I had one more idea and so if you make it, email me a picture! Someone needs to make one that says “Don’t judge me by my junk!”. Classic! (I finally did my own! See below)

I also have an eye-catching idea for booth spaces, store fronts and antique vendors that will help you get more traffic! Look at how I used this mannequin to get more traffic to a home show I was attending. More traffic = more leads = more sales.
