Community Garage Sale
 October 21-22, 2016

The date for our first semi-annual Bridgewater Crossing Community Garage Sale is fast approaching. The sale will be held Friday & Saturday, October 21-22, 2016.  The hours will be Friday, October 21, 7AM-4PM and Saturday, October 22, 7AM-2PM. 

With the garage sale just 3 weeks away it is time to get serious about cleaning out the attic and the closets of unwanted items. A garage sale is a great way to clear out without having to load up your vehicle to transport the items elsewhere.   Please be reminded that the BWC CC&R (Codes, Covenants & Restrictions) allow for garage sales to be held only during the Community Garage Sale timing or as a onetime exemption if you are moving.

We have plans to place banner signs on Renner @ Sharp Lane and Sharp Lane @ Bridgewater Drive, directional signs at our entrance and throughout BWC, and balloons on participant’s mailboxes.  This sign plan has been approved by the City of Richardson.  The city has also waived the requirement for individual garage sale permits.

We will be e-mailing one last notice in a few weeks to give undecided homeowners an opportunity to prepare for the garage sale. This notice will also provide any last minute additional details regarding the sale.  Meanwhile, tips for a successful garage sale are attached.

Please e-mail me, Diana Levy, (; 3424 Bridgewater Drive) as to whether or not you plan to participate in the garage sale.  Having your name on the participation list ensures your home will be flagged with balloons and directional signing as participating in the sale. Also, please contact me with any questions you may have or if you would like to help in the planning and/or execution of this community wide event.

Thank you.

 Tips For A Successful Garage Sale

Enlist Some Helpers

Ask a friend to chip in for the cause, both by putting her stuff up for sale, too, and volunteering to help the day of. Not only will this double the selection of items for sale, you’ll have an extra pair of hands to help.

Consider Your Layout

When it comes to rummaging through other people’s used stuff, presentation matters.  Arrange all items by category, and make it easy to navigate between sections. Instead of throwing books into a box, line them up on a bookshelf for easy browsing. Hang up clothes on an old shower rod and order them by size. Place hot ticket items near the end of your driveway to lure in customers. If people driving by see something that catches their eye, they’ll stop to take a look.

Create Ambiance
Advertise Each Item’s Value

  • Put (half used) batteries in that remote controlled car so shoppers can test it out.
  • Have an electric outlet available so customers can try plugging in their just-purchased blender or lamp.
  • Many of your items were probably once featured in catalogs or online. Clip out old ads of your camera or Amazon printouts of kids’ toys (with the original price, of course).
Also, price your items with round numbers–25 cents instead of 15 cents, $2 instead of $1.80. This way, you’ll avoid juggling loose change and making math errors when calculating totals.

Just because you’re setting up shop in your driveway doesn’t mean it can’t have the vibe of a classy boutique. Play some nice background music so shoppers aren’t perusing in silence. If your child is really into it, he/she could even open a lemonade stand and sell packaged snacks or your favorite homemade cookies to make some extra cash. Make sure to have a garbage can nearby to keep things tidy.

Make sure all your items are clearly marked with price tags, which will discourage bargain-hunters from offering a bargain-basement price on items that aren’t marked.

For bigger items like furniture, make large price signs so shoppers aren’t searching for that small, elusive price tag. Try these tips to spruce up drab items:

Don’t Overprice

The main thing to remember is not to overprice. Although it’s nice to make money, clearing out that excess clutter should be your ultimate goal. A good rule of thumb is to sell things for one-half to one-third their original price.

Be Thoughtful About Checkout

Instead of putting all your money in a tin, use an apron with pockets or a fanny pack so you have cash on you all the time.  Have lots of small bills to make change for customers, and when they’re ready to pay, tally up their items and keep a ledger of what you sold for how much. Once your customers have selected their treasures, wrap up breakables in newspaper and provide bags for easy transport.  As the day winds down, don’t be afraid to lower prices or offer everything half off.
