I apparently have no grasp on what people like and purchase. My daughter in law nerved herself up to have a garage sale and I donated an air fryer, used only twice...new and shiny to the cause. No interest was shown in it at half the retail price. A lot of people came despite the terrible heat and most bought dollar items.
I have friends who can unerringly predict what will sell and have wonderful garage sales netting them big bucks. It is a knack that I do not have. I have wanted to sell a treadmill for ages and it sits here and taunts me. I prefer walking outside and it is taking up space in my middle bedroom.
I have instructed my daughter to have one of three estate sale promoters to come in and do an estate sale upon our demise after the family takes what they want. They charge a whopping 40 percent but handle everything.
At Ellie's garage sale, there were some great buys that went totally unnoticed. I bought a couple of serapes to drape over the porch furniture. She had a lot of clear depression glass that was ignored.
