Start early. Garage salers (myself included) are crazy and will show up even earlier if there is a prospect of good bargains -- guaranteed. People are excited by bright, legible signs. I remember my mom using yellow posters, black sharpies, and red balloons tied in the corners to attract attention of drivers on major roadways. Put some sort of wood backing (like a garden stake) on the back to prevent your signs from bending. Then use the same color paper/markers to make arrow signs directing your shoppers/browsers down the road to your fabulous garage sale! Have fun!

This is the neatest space I have ever entered! If you look closely at the exterior pictures you'll see little dots or holes in the concrete spaced strategically throughtout. At the end of each "hole" is a glass marble so the sunlight can stream thru the various prisms.
