Confessions of a Yard Sale Fanatic
Unless you live on a busy street with a lot of drive-by traffic, having good, readable, yardsale signs really can help direct people to your yardsale. Since I go to yardsales every chance I get, I see the whole range of signs, from the good to the very bad. You know a good yardsale sign when you see it: readable and has the pertinent information on it (like street, and date) and a big fat arrow. And it's not a sign for a yardsale that happened three weeks ago.

Rain + homemade signs = does not make for a good combination.
The dictionary is your friend. Anyone need some clotes?
My first time at a "rumage" sale. Didn't buy a thing. (Now had it been a Minnesota Vikings blow-up doll, that would have been a different story).
Here's a bad sign - too much doodle crap - I had to literally get about 2 feet from the sign in order to read it. Many people wouldn't have bothered.
What usually happens when people use flimsy poster board...ugghh...
These just caught my attention:
This is always a good sign to see:
I spotted this sign (apparently made out of kryptonite), in snowy upstate NY in December for moving sale that took place that past August (take your signs down people, and if you don't, I hope the Yardsale Gods sends customers from Hell to your next sale!)
Hard to miss this sign for sale on VArDs. However, the sign was so darn big that it was a traffic hazard, blocking the view of oncoming traffic. Bigger is not always better.
Thankfully, some people have great signs. Here's one where the person attached their sign to a box (which they weighed down)
I went to this yardsale and of course I had to ask where they got their signs. The spouse works for a graphics/sign company. Of course.
