What does a person on their way to the slammer do with all of their belongings while they’re away? Sells them! If there was ever a yard sale to go to, a Going to Jail Sale is it. You know that they are selling everything they own. From clothing to jewelry to furniture — everything must go.
They aren’t getting rid of these things because they want to. Instead, they have to. It’s a win/win situation. You’re buying bargains while doing this guy a favor! Plus, you can get yourself a can of Coke for just 50 cents! That is a major selling point if you ask us.
To Steal From a Thief
What do you do when your boyfriend leaves you and takes the dog with him? You get rid of all of his stuff, that's precisely what you do! And what do you do with the money you get from selling all of his stuff? The options are endless and they heavily depend on how much was made.
From treating yourself to a whole pineapple pizza (which he hates) to going on a vacation and getting your groove back, there are no bad ideas here. What kind of person steals someone else's dog? A monster, that's who! Sell his stuff, girl, sell it all!
A Queen on Kingston Avenue
There are many ways to draw someone to an event you're hosting, but this one seems a little puzzling. We don't understand why someone thought that advertising that their grandmother was psycho was a sure way to get people to come to their garage sale.
Maybe they know something about yard sales signs that we don't? Perhaps the fact that she's unhinged means that the prices of the stuff she's selling are very, very low? Another option is that she is selling stuff that no one in their right mind would sell. Either way, it sounds like a sale worth visiting and a grandma worth knowing.
So how exactly do you set your garage sale apart from all the others? Get a high-profile personality to advertise it, of course! Except budget is a thing so you have to get a little creative with an original sign to lure people in. These funny signs reference back to current moments in entertainment that everyone is bound to be familiar with.
Whether it's Macklemore, Batman, or Gandalf (Kanye may not be the best choice for a spokesperson nowadays), someone is bound to know one of these references and have a good laugh. Even if you've only got $20 in your pocket...
Walk This Way
People see yard sales signs all the time. Most of the time they get ignored because we have places to go and people to see and those yard sale excursions are usually not planned. So, the smart thing to do to get both attention and traffic is to find a way to make your sale stand out.
Using memes is a great way to make an impression - to connect with your potential customers. It's like you're creating a sense of kinship with them based on that internet thing you both know. We're guessing everyone that came to this yard sale, came prepared to say, "take my money!"
