Sellers Beware Rummage Sale Buyers are Coming Your Way

One of my fun hobbies is to go to rummage sales. So much fun and when you find something you have been looking for then that just puts a smile on my face.

There are a few rules that buyers should keep in mind when out rummaging this yard sale season 

It is true that early birds get the best worm. The only thing is don't get the seller upset by being there too early simply get there at the very beginning.

Geting there at the end has its benifits as well. Since sellers normally like to get rid of what they had left behind than to pack it all up there are normally good chance for great buys.

If you find something you are really interested put your tabs on it pick it up, carry it with you or have someone watch it if it is to big to carry around. It is a whole lot easier to change your mind and put it back than to grab it if someone else decides they like it as well.

Play your cards right by letting them know that you are really interested in a piece but if you are going to negotiate you want to keep a poker face allowing them to see that you are interested but at a certian price Dont be insulting by offering to little but keep your reasonable price in mind and be ready to walk away if you don't get near the price you think is reasonable

Great advice is to try it before you buy it. This way you dont get home and be disappointed because an item you purchase does not work.

If you plan on purchasing a lot become a piler and make a pile and ask if they can do any better on all of that.
