Furniture: must be in good condition if modern; damaged antiques will sell if they're repairable. Home decorations: vases; candlesticks and candelabras; china, crystal, or glass figurines and ornaments; framed paintings or posters; bookends; decorative wooden spice racks; etc. Electronic equipment Home-repair supplies and tools Magazines and books Clothing: the '70s are back again, so drag out those wide-leg jeans and crop-tops. Bring out all your seldom/never worn or hated items -- even bridesmaids' dresses will sell at garage sales! Kids' and babies' clothes in good condition are always in high demand. Costume jewelry: unwanted rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are popular impulse purchases. Luggage and purses: old steamer trunks and chests in reasonable shape will be snapped up immediately for a good price (they sell for $150+ in antique shops, and are usually purchased for household decoration rather than travel). Leather luggage will usually sell, as will "period" (for example, Art Deco) or attractive handbags. Toys and games: if and only if they're in good condition, these can be popular items. Games must have all their pieces, and toys shouldn't look like they've been dragged along behind a speeding car on a dirt road. Unwanted wedding presents and other gifts: if they've never been used and are still in their original packing, you can get good prices for gift items -- from coffee makers to CDs.
