    So 6.50am the line up began! It was advertised for 9am. By 8am there was at least 20 people waiting. They pushed each other through the gate and by 8.45am 95% was sold!
    It was awful lol people yelling and throwing money at me lol they were trying to buy things that were part of the front yard!

    If you try & sell stuff on ebay you'll find that $1 per item is actually pretty good unfortunately! Crazy, but true! But, think about how many $1 items you might have to sell, especially if you have multiple sizes of baby clothes & it adds up.

    I was selling mine for $1 each but it was only the target/big w stuff. Ended up selling the a whole box for $3 because it was the last to go.
    I saved the purebaby/oobi etc for eBay in hope id get a bit more.

    Sounds like a big success!

    Can i suggest that you put prices on larger items, and general prices for books, clothes etc. Usually if I'm only semi-interested in things I dont want to have to ask 20 times 'how much is this', but if I see that the books are $2 or whatever I might pick up a couple.
