The yard is in an upscale neighborhood very close to the downtown of a large US City (memail me if you want more specific location) where it's already warm.
The big draw items that I have are gently worn (Banana Republic/Loft/etc) women's clothes in a small size, KitchenAid stand mixer, and other kitchen items, as well as some craft supplies. I'm a terrible photographer with only a cameraphone. I don't personally know anyone who can take quality pictures.
The plan is for this to happen on Sunday.
So. How do you word a Craigslist ad to get people to show up? How to price things (I'm especially worried about the mixer...)? How much change should I have on hand? How early should I start?
