Tips for the World's Longest Yard Sale and National Garage Sale Day

If you're a yard sale/garage sale/flea market enthusiast, this is probably your favorite month of the year.  After all, the World's Longest Yard Sale is August 5-8 and just a few days later on August 14 you can celebrate National Garage Sale Day!  (Yes, you read that right.  There is actually an official World's Longest Yard Sale!  Over 675 miles of sales stretching from Michigan to Alabama along US Highway 127.) 

If you're thinking about participating in one of these events, or just hosting your own sale sometime soon, here's a quick video for you to watch with some on how to turn your clutter into cash.  Also, be sure to check out the articles from Lifetime's Tips & Solutions page on our website for some helpful garage sale/yard sale pointers.  You'll find information about how to best display your items, organization, printable price tags, signage, and more.

For dining and eating, a standard banquet style table works really well - the 30-inch wide surface provides the right amount of space to lay out the food and still give you room for plates and table settings across from each other. Now, the question I pose today is what about the times when you just need to display food in a buffet style and you need to keep the table out of the way?Well, a great option for you would be to use one of our 18-inch wide LifetimeConference Tables as that perfect buffet table for the home, office, or church get together. This style of table is a recent addit...
