Printable Yard Sale Pricing Guide
This post may contain affiliate links. View our disclosure.
The trickiest part of having a yard sale? Trying to figure out how to price everything. If you price things too high, they won’t sell. If you price things too low, you won’t make as much as you could have. It’s all about hitting that sweet spot in the middle, where you end the day with a pocketful of cash and a cleaned out house. But how do you know where that sweet spot lies? By hosting a ton of yard sales, or by referring to my new yard sale pricing guide.
Just think of it as your yard sale cheatsheet.
It has suggested prices for almost 100 items, along with advice on when you should charge more, and things you can do to maximize your profits.

I cannot get the pricing guide to open. I get an error file not find message.
Thanks, for bringing that to my attention. It should be working now.
Thank you so much! This is will be my first yard/garage sale and this will help me a lot. Thank you again.
Thank you so much!!!!! 🙂 I appreciate you taking the time and effort to do this for FREE!
Thanks for these! Have you ever used the Talley Sheet app (tallysheetapp dot com)? We used it for our last sale and it saved us a ton of time too.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. this is my first garage sale. A wee bit nervous not sure what to expect. I have several antique items to sell, brass nautical lanterns, Pfaltzgraff platters and other pieces which I have priced on Replacements LTD. but they seem a wee bit high so not sure what I should do for a garage sale. also crystal wine glass sets should they be priced the same as drinking glasses. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Is the video with the bee catcher your idea/product on the right side of this page? Are there instructions on how to build it?
Hi Margaret, I would definitely ask more for your crystal glasses. Be sure to label them as crystal, so people realize what they are. And I agree that Replacements prices are probably too high for a garage sale. It’s okay to ask more for really good quality stuff, but you don’t want to scare people off with your prices either. You might even think about listing your really good pieces on eBay, and then sell everything else at your garage sale. When I have antiques to sell, I make sure I mention that in my ad. It helps to bring the antiques dealers in.
And yep, that carpenter bee video is for our carpenter bee traps that we make and sell. You can find instructions to make them here: https://www.myfrugalhome.com/how-to-build-a-carpenter-bee-trap/

How do I find out pricing for old infant toys and metal cars and trucks. not looking as if selling as antiques. just for a garage sale. thanks
One option would be to look up comparable stuff on eBay. I would probably charge 25% of what people are getting for it online.
Thank you so much. This is very helpful.
Thanks for this guide. It will help me with my sale.
