A 'variety sale'! What a good idea Charmion.
We have lots of car-boot sales round here during Spring and Summer, and table-top sales in village halls when it's cold outside.
We're planning on doing a garage sale on our front drive (and inside the garage of course) at Easter. It's much easier than carting stuff away from the house to a car-boot sale.
We have a Facebook page for our village now, and we can also advertise it in the Parish magazine. I have lots of kitchen equipment I no longer use, garden tools, planter tubs and pots, odd pieces of furniture, rugs, excess Christmas decorations, arty crafty stuff, no end of clutter.
We love doing it because everyone natters away, it's like a party. And many of them bring their lovely dogs (who all know us) My husband offers orange squash in paper cups and I do small cakes.
At our last house many years ago we did one and made £250 - not bad.
