RealSimple.com and GarageSalesTracker.com have garage sale pricing guides that suggested prices for a variety of items. TheFunTimesGuide.com has some additional tips for finding the potential value of items and pricing them accordingly.
Items at a garage sale should generally be priced between $1 for books, records or plastic toys and $100 to $300 for large furniture such as sofas or dining tables. To get rid of more items at once, consider offering package deals on things like T-shirts, jewelry, kitchen supplies or other small items. For example, charge $1 for one pair of earrings but $3 for five pairs of earrings when purchased together.
