Writing tips for garage, yard, rummage, flea market or estate sale ads!

  • Remember - the ad copy and photos are ALL the online bidder has to work with. Make your ad copy count.

  • Be descriptive using keywords to list all possible items of your sale.

  • Note directions and/or landmarks in a seperate section of your sale description. Best to link to an online map. Some people will need them.

  • If you're having a multi-family, church or block sale be sure to note it at the beginning of the ad.
