Where/how we advertise:We advertise in the Stillwater News Press with a Sunday display ad and a 3 day garage sale ad.
You can find ads in the Perkins and Stillwater Journals, Craigslist, our website, ShopNSwap, ShowNTell and Shoppers Edge. We distribute flyers as well. We DO NOT advertise in Estate Sales.net/org/com. Please do not call, text or email asking for prices. We get too many requests and honestly, do not have time to check prices and answer everyone.
Ideas and Tips: We never regret the things we buy only the items we don't. When you come to a tag sale, look around to see what all there is. If you see something that you know you can't live without, pull the tag or pick up the item and place it at the cashier's table. Continue looking in all rooms, garage and outside for items that are for sale. I can almost guarantee that you will see something the second time that you did not see the first time. Many of our customers come back several times during the sale because there is always something they did not see the first time or they are hoping something they saw and did not buy is still available.
Bid Sheets: Customers can leave a bid on item or items by filling out a bid sheet for items over $100 by picking up at bid sheet at the cashier table.. Your bid must be above one of the discount times by 10% or those customers who are here will be give first preference on the item. Example: you leave a bid on a $100 table for $55 this is 10% above half price. You will list the item, the original price and what price are willing to pay. One of the Tag Ladies will date and time the bid sheet. We date and time the bid sheet so that if more than one person leaves the same bid on a particular item, we will know who placed the first bid on the item. We will call you to let you know if you won the bid. Please remember that someone else may buy it at the tagged price. Filling out a bid sheet does not guarantee you will win the item(s) that you bid on. The first bid has the first option to buy the item if it has not sold at the full or reduced price. You must leave us a phone number to contact you, if we can not reach you by telephone, your bid will not be accepted. If your bid is accepted you can not ask for further price reductions.
